If the meet reaches capacity prior to the entry deadline, then we reserve the right to close entries before that deadline. If the meet closes early, then we will place teams on a (first come-first listed) waiting list and allow them into the meet if room becomes available. Coaches are encouraged to enter the meet as early as possible.
Athletes can be entered in the Elite Division or in the Open Division
Once the deadline arrives, all entries are final. No exceptions (this meet is a significant undertaking, and we need sufficient time to seed races, prepare competitor numbers, etc.)
Each teams final entry fees is determined by their entries prior to the meet, and not by the number of participants in the meet.
Coaches are responsible for reading the meet literature in its entirety.
