IMPORTANT - Mercy Rule in Swimmingly

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

Mercy Rule means max 2 swimmers per club may score in an event, next swimmer (if any) on other team gets 3rd place point. Neither team may score 3 places in an event.

Needs to be input a specific way and it is NOT preset unless you set it.
If you have a problem setting it up, make that third place swim (team also placing 1st & 2nd) Unofficial/Exhibition so points scored will be correct.


Waivers and Rosters 2022

Coaches for any team not using Swimmingly must also submit rosters to FCSL without missing information before athletes participation. (Name, gender, date of birth, phone # and email address is minimum) You can add athletes if they join team later.
