Diving competition, when part of the meet, may be held prior to the swimming events, after the 50-yard freestyle or after the swimming events. Men will precede women in all events. The order of events is subject to change after the season begins.

Because of the team size, swimmers may not be entered in 2-individual events for every meet. Every attempt will be made to enter as many swimmers as possible. Swimmers may request particular events by submitting written notices to coach up to the entry deadline. The coach will make the final decision. For several events, more than one heat will be seeded. When there is more than one heat for an event, only swimmers in the first heat will score points. Times for subsequent heats do count for county, state, and letter purposes.

All swimmers are responsible for removing any jewelry before entering the pool. This includes hair bands or any other bands worn on the wrist. A swimmer will be disqualified for wearing jewelry during an event.
