                                                 1. Each team will pre-commit to a capped (maximum) number of entries when the
                                                 meet documents are sent out.
                                                 2. A team may submit entries that exceed their pre-commit cap and it is encouraged
                                                 that they do so if they have swimmers that want to attend the meet. However, the
                                                 Meet director will determine if excess entries will be accepted as warranted by meet
                                                 timeline.
                                                 3. If meet timelines are in excess of what is acceptable then a team will be requested
                                                 to cut back to their original maximum cap they committed to.
                                                 4. If there is extra room in the meet the host team will reach out to other teams in
                                                 order to fill the meet.

 Entry Close Date:                               Entries will close at 11 PM on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. This is the final date that
