Scratch Deadline and Procedure

If a relay team is seeded in the meet and does not plan on competing the Representative/Coach of that team should scratch the team from their event. Scratches for this meet must be submitted by 9:00 pm on Monday, July 24th and must be submitted by sending an email to automation@mcsl.org.

Remember: there are no swimups allowed at All Star Relays. If a team does not have enough swimmers of the correct age group, then they should scratch from the event to allow another team to swim.

Check-in Procedures

All coaches must pick up their relay cards from the Clerk of Course at the start of warm-ups. The relay card must be completed and returned to the Clerk of Course per the below schedule.

Events Due To Clerk of Course

1 thru 4 20 minutes before start of meet
5 thru 8 No later than start of meet
9 thru 12 No later than start of Event 5
13 thru 16 No later than start of Event 9
17 thru 22 No later than start of Event 13

If a team does not turn in a completed relay card in accordance with the above schedule and an alternate team has been assigned, the original team WILL NOT allowed to swim the event.

Only relay cards must be returned to the Clerk of Course. Swimmers should report directly to their assigned lanes.

Officials, Timers/Take-Off Judges and Other Volunteers

The MCSL All Star Relay Meet requires the staffing of two full sets of Officials, Timers, Take-Off Judges and Other Volunteers since the meet is run in two sessions – Section I and Section II. This meet is a unique event in that each Division swims approximately the same number of Relay teams. As a result, we need All Divisions to provide volunteers and help staff the meet.

If you wish to work as an official, please contact the competition committee at competition@mcsl.org with the section you will be attending and your team affiliation. All other volunteers are asked to sign up using the following links:

Section I Volunteers - Sign Up Here

Section II Volunteers - Sign Up Here

Preliminary All Star Relay Seedings for each Section will be posted in advance of the meet with Final Seeding’s posted by the Thursday before the Meet. If you identify errors or have questions regarding your teams seeding you should reach out to the automation team at automation@mcsl.org.


Programs for All-Star Relays are now available for Relay All Stars I and Relay All Stars II. We will not be providing programs on site - you'll need to print them before the meet.

Meet T-Shirts

Meet t–Shirts for this event may be ordered in advance of the meet through Capital Sport & Swim. T-Shirts may be picked-up by a team Representative at the Capital Swim & Sport tent during the meet.


Entrance to the Centers 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 Centers lot only park in defined spaces. Do not make your own parking space.

If you do not park in the Centers 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 Swim Center or on side streets as this will likely result in you receiving a City of Rockville parking ticket.</strong

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