For 2017 there will be qualifying times (entry guaranteed) and conditional times (entry dependent upon space; each event has a time limit, so if too many swimmers apply then swimmers with conditional times may not have their entry accepted).
There are two additional changes worthy of note.
If you use a swim hat then the hat must be a Penguins or neutral hat. Any other affiliation – UBSC, school or previous swimming club – will not be accepted. ‘Neutral’ hats include Gloucester County ASA hats, hats for swimming at regions/national arena/nationals, manufacturer’s logos …
The second is that if you win a medal you must wear a shirt (preferably a Penguins shirt) when you go up to collect your medal.
