Additional Qualifying Criterion for State Championships
Affecting swimmers who age-up between the Minnesota Regional Championships and State
Swimmers are now allowed to swim the events from their old age group in which they HAD “CH” time(s), in their
new age group, provided:
o They age up in between the starting dates of Minnesota Regional Championships (March 1, 2013)
   and State (March 14, 2013).
o They are either 8 becoming 9, or 10 becoming 11, or 12 becoming 13.
o They have “CH” time(s) in their old age group before Minnesota Regional Championships. “CH”
   times made for the younger age group at Minnesota Regional Championships may not be entered in
   State under this provision.

This affects only those events in which a swimmer had “CH” times (old age group) and do not now have “CH” times (new age group). These swimmers will not be counted in the MSI formula concerning number of relays allowed at State based on number of “CH” swimmers. Swimmers being entered under this new criterion must note this on the hard copy of the entry sheet. All seed times must be in either short course yards (seeded first), long course meters (seeded next) or short course meters (seeded final).

 

Fees: $3.50 per swimmer including relay only swimmers, and $6.50 per event
