IMPORTANT:
1.  USA SWIMMING PROHIBITS THE USE OF WET SUITS IN TEMPS ABOVE 20 DEGREE CELSIUS AND THE WATER TEMERATURE DOES NOT MERIT THEM.

2. Swim suit rules---women may wear 2 pieces, as long as they are not tie back and do have sports bra/triathlon type tops in line w/ FINA decency requirements. NO TIE BACK SUITS OF ANY SORT ARE PERMITTED.

3. Nails--Real and Fake nails that go over the required length will result in a NO SWIM! Nail length will be inspected at check in. NO swimmer will receive a number if their​ fingernails are not deemed legal by the referee at check in.
