QUAD Makeup Swim
The 2017 makeup swim will be held on Sunday, May 7th at the Glenwood YMC A from 11am – 1pm. The makeup swim will NOT have assigned heats. Rolling heats will occur as swimmers register. If you participate in the makeup swim your time will count towards your overall QUAD time (including future overall QUAD awards) but you will not be eligible for overall or age group swim awards.
QUAD Swim Scoring
If you are participating in the entire QUAD series you will receive 30 seconds for every second of your 100-yard swim time. This will be the time used in your overall QUAD time.
Example: your 100-yard swim time is 1 minute and 13 seconds. You will earn 30 seconds for every second of your 100-yard swim. This would equal 36 and ½ minutes and be the time listed in the overall QUAD series results.
