What Does "Circle In" Mean?

 At most meets, swimmers must “Circle In” (check-in) for certain events to be eligible to swim.

Near the entry to the pool, locate the swimmer listings which are typically posted on poster board and organized by gender, then by age-group. On each age-group poster board, you will see the events of the day, with a listing of each swimmer who entered the event.

The swimmer needs to circle the number next to their name for each event they entered for that particular day.

Plan on arriving early at the pool.  Circle-In lists are pulled about 45 minutes before the start of the meet.  If a swimmer has not circled in, he or she cannot swim their events.
