Intent to Swim Agreement

Swimmers must declare their intent to swim in Championships and Classics IN ADVANCE of their Divisional swim meet in accordance with SAIL policy. No change can be made after the start of the divisional meet.

SCRATCH FINE: A swimmer who is a late scratch at either the Championship or Classic meets for other than a valid reason, as determined by the sole discretion of the C&C Meet Director (physical, death in the family, etc.), will be fined $50.00 per individual event and $100.00 per relay event payable to the League. Scratches reported prior to Championships and Classics meets being finalized will be fined $25.00 for any event. The meet will be finalized at 10 am on the Wednesday following divisionals. The responsibility for the fine is on the team. Failure to pay said fine(s) by February meeting of the next year on the part of the team makes that team and all its members ineligible to participate in SAIL until all fines are paid. This fine does not apply to alternates who have not been called by Thursday night. Moving a swimmer or relay from Championships to Classics is optional for the swimmer or relay if notified after 5 pm on the day before Championships. (SAIL Technical Rules 2.7)

Gower Swim Team Scratch Agreement

Gower Swim Team

Scratch Policy Agreement

If you are not participating in a meet, you must submit your scratch electronically at https://gogower.swimtopia.com by 5pm on Monday the week of the meet.  Swimmers CANNOT verbally tell a coach about their absence. Entries must be made into the computer on Tuesday and cannot be changed. A swimmer must participate in at least 2 meets to be eligible to swim in the Red Division Swim Meet.

All swimmers agree to swim the events the coaches put them in for each meet.  Please trust and support the coaches' decision.

Scratches have become a problem at our swim meets.  Excessive scratches prolongs the meet and disrupts the meet from running smoothly. To help lessen delays, a $10 scratch fee (per event) will be charged to any swimmer who does not show up for their event. Thank you for helping our meets run smoothly and for your cooperation.
