Scratch Deadline and Procedure

If a swimmer, based on previous time rankings, expects they will be seeded in the meet and they either (1) do not plan on participating in the meet or (2) do not want to swim a particular event, they should scratch from the events they do not want to swim. Scratches from individual events in this meet will not be accepted after 9:00 pm on Monday, July 24th and must be submitted utilizing the MCSL Online Scratch process. In the event that a swimmer needs to scratch the full meet after the scratch deadline, email competition@mcsl.org.

Swimmer Check-in Procedures

All swimmers, including alternates, should report to the start area no later than two events prior to the time their event is scheduled to be swum. Alternates should check in with the start area chief judge. If an empty lane is available, the first or second alternate will be placed into the empty lane(s). Swimmers who do not check in with the start area chief judge may not be seeded into an empty lane. DO NOT simply report to a lane you know or believe to be open. Only the Deck Referee will place alternates in an event. If there are empty lanes and no alternates present at the start of the event, the lanes will not be filled.

Use of Towels for Starts

Towels are permitted to be used for both forward and backstroke starts.

Entrance to the Center's parking lot is only through the easternmost (indoor pool) driveway and the exit is through the westernmost (outdoor pool) driveway.

A fee of $2.00 is charged for parking in the Center’s lot. You may drop someone off without paying the fee but you cannot park in the lot and must exit after dropping off. If you choose to park in the Center's lot only park in defined spaces. Do not make your own parking space.

If you do not park in the Center's lot you may park on Martins Lane, the Rock Terrace School parking lot (do not park on their fields or grass) or in the Board of Education parking lot off of Mannakee Street.

Do not park on the baseball field across the street from the Center or on side streets as this will likely result in you receiving a City of Rockville parking ticket.

Please assist the staff in making the parking operation a smooth one.
