See current Appendix XXII - Referee Rec' Min Fees AND any latest updates as noted below:

Qualifying for Counties at Wilton YMCA

PLEASE NOTE:
As decided in past, when hosting FCSL Counties at Wilton YMCA:
FCSL Scoring/Qualifying Rules for 8 lane pool will apply (16 places score) but 3 heats of 6 swimmers may swim per event (=18 swimmers*)

3 swimmers per team per event qualify by time swum at Divisional meet (after scratches). Only "A" Relay per team per relay event qualify for Counties.

*Instead of two empty lanes, two extra swimmers per event get opportunity to swim in Counties.


IMPORTANT - Mercy Rule in Swimmingly

When using Swimmingly, make sure the Mercy Rule is set correctly - watch very short video! to find out how.

Mercy Rule means max 2 swimmers per club score in an event, next swimmer (if any) on other team gets 3rd place point.
No team may score 3 places in an event.


This Rule is NOT preset in Swimmingly unless you set in a specific way.
If you have problem setting it up, make third place swimmer (for team also placing 1st & 2nd) UNofficial/Exhibition so points scored will be correct.
