SCORING SYSTEM

Correctly picking a swimmer to place:

  • 1st – 7 points
  • 2nd – 5 points
  • 3rd – 4 points
  • 4th – 3 points

Correctly picking a swimmer to place in the top 4, but putting them in the wrong spot, will earn you 1 point.

In the team picks, correctly picking a team to finish in exactly each place will earn this many points:

  • 1st – 20
  • 2nd – 17
  • 3rd – 16
  • 4th – 15
  • 5th – 14
  • 6th – 13
  • 7th – 12
  • 8th – 11
  • 9th – 9
  • 10th – 7

Picks will close at 4PM Eastern Time on Wednesday, March 15th, and at that time, we will post everyone’s picks for them to see.

By using the new Google Forms format, you CAN go in and edit your responses up until 4 PM on Wednesday. You can also use this “edit responses” ability to go in and print or save your answers.

The tie-breaker for prizes, if necessary, will be the most correctly-picked winners, then 2nd-place finishers, then 3rd-place finishers, etc. in the relevant time period.

Note: this year, we’ve solved a technical limitation that we had last year that made it impossible to change your mind on the team selections once a team had been clicked. The “JK” columns are designed for any such errors. If you don’t need them, feel free to leave them blank!

PRIZES

The highest scorer each day (with days 1 and 2 combined) will receive

  • SwimSwam Magazine Subscription
  • FINIS Snapback Hat
  • Exlcusive FINIS Fifth Stroke T-Shirt

One overall champion will receive:

  • FINIS Onyx Technical Racing Suit

The second and third-place finishers in the overall scoring will also receive a subscription to SwimSwam Magazine.

OFFICIAL RULES

Anybody is eligible to play, but only certain people are eligible for prizes. For starters, only one entry per person is allowed. If we discover that you have made multiple entries, we may disqualify all of your entries.
