Eligibility No entrant will be permitted to compete unless the entrant is a member of USA Swimming as provided in Article 302. Swimmer’s age as of January 5, 2013, determines age for the meet. Any swimmer entered in the meet must be certified by a USA Swimming member-coach as being proficient in performing a racing start or must start each race from within the water. When unaccompanied by a member-coach, it is the responsibility of the swimmer or the swimmer’s legal guardian to ensure compliance with this requirement.
Coaches Athletes must be under the supervision of a USA Swimming member coach during warm-up, competition, and warm-down. If required, the Meet Director or Meet Referee can assist an athlete in making arrangements for such supervision. Coaches and officials must constantly display their current USA Swimming credential or be prepared to present their USA Swimming ID card as proof of their registration to the Meet Director or designee at any time. The meet referee reserves the right to ask for coach credential display and/or deny deck access if coach does not comply or card is no longer valid or current.
Officials Nu Wave would appreciate officiating help from visiting teams. If available, please contact the Meet Director. All meet directors, referees, starters, and stroke and turn judges, serving in an official capacity must be members of USA Swimming.
Conduct All timed final events will be swum slowest to fastest. In order to provide better competition for everyone, and save time by eliminating empty lanes, all age groups, and male and female events, will be combined. Swimmers will be seeded by time.
Entries Each swimmer may enter a maximum of five individual events on Saturday and three individual events on Sunday. Meet management reserves the right to limit meet size to comply with Louisiana Swimming, Inc.'s four-hour rule. Meet management reserves the right to limit the number of entries per event. If entries in a particular event are limited, meet management will use the criteria of fastest entry (seed) times. If entries are limited, meet management will use the criteria of first received basis. All entries received after this time will be promptly returned.
Scoring Individual scores will be based on the IMX Power Point Calculator (www.usaswimming.org). The athlete in each age group with the highest point total will be the Nu Wave Xtreme IMX Champion for that age group. If a swimmer wants to swim events in addition to the IMX series or in lieu of it, he may do so if within the entry limit for the day.
