Typically, Arizona allows any team to host a state meet qualifier, and teams can attend as many qualifiers as they want to try to put up qualifying times. But with the coronavirus pandemic causing some unequal playing fields between teams, this year each team will be assigned one qualifying meet.

The state meets will be limited to just 250 individuals in the facility at at time. That means no spectators and forces the switch to multiple individual sessions. All will be swum as timed finals, instead of the state’s typical prelims/finals format.
