What is a Mid Season Invitational Meet?
Lone Star Classic is an optional, fun, mid-season meet with many swimmers who qualify. Swimmers 12 & Under must achieve a qualifying time; swimmers 13 years and older are invited to participate regardless of seed time. For this meet, a time achieved in time trials or any meet this season can be used to achieve the qualifying time. All swimmers must have a time, there are no “NT’s” (No Times) allowed.

on the website. Click the checkbox next to the events you would like for your
swimmer to swim. (Note: If your swimmer has qualified, there will be a checkbox next to the event for you to enter them in this meet. If there is no checkbox, your swimmer has not qualified for that event.) You can also review the attached report.
If your swimmer has qualified for 2 individual events and would like to swim bonus events, I will need to add those for you. Please request bonus events after you sign them up for the meet using the following google form: https://goo.gl/forms/
If you know you are going to attend, please go ahead and put in your entries. You can add to your entries if your swimmer qualifies for additional events during the next meet. If your swimmer improves their time, their best legal time will be what is used for their entry time. Remember, if your swimmer qualifies in 2 events they can swim any additional events as long as they have a legal time for the event (no NTs) and Time Trials do work for this meet. (The 10 & Under 50 Free & 11-12 100 free, and 100 IM are the exception – you must have qualifying times for these events).
