2019 Rule Manual

NEW RULE FOR TRACK AND SWIMMING - implemented Fall of 2018

To combat fatigue and injuries that occur during our one day district events, our board has implemented these new rules:

Track: For every district running event completed, an additional running event may be entered at state (any distance may be chosen).

Examples:

If one district event is completed such as the 100m run, another event such as the 50m run may be added when registering for state. If two district events are completed (such as the 400m and 800m run), 2 additional running events may be added when registering for state. And so on.

Swimming: please remember that 6 events total may be chosen at district or state

For every district swimming event completed within a stroke, an additional event within that stroke may be entered at state (any distance may be chosen).

Examples:

A 50 back competitor at the district may also register for the 100 back at state. If two district events are completed (such as the 50 free and 100 fly), one additional free and one additional fly event at state may be picked up. This allows district swimmers the opportunity to swim less than 6 events at district and to change up events within the same stroke when registering for state. As a reminder, swimmers are limited to 6 swimming events at state competition.
