Is there anyway for us to see who has registered to swim 2010 SCY Nationals? I know there was a meet I swam two years ago and they updated online who has registered and for what team. Just curious...

We never release entry info prior to the close of entries for nationals. This is a national championship, and I guarantee that people would be setting their entries based on what other people are swimming or who else is entered. They'd do this in order to personally place higher in events or to increase team scores. We don't want to encourage that.

He could tell ya...but then he'd have to kill ya!

BTW, makes perfect sense. No big secret, there is less people in the 1650...swim it! :D:afraid::bolt:

Any reason to not post simply names of people who have entered? I follow this policy for our NE SCY meet. I only post names and number of events entered. Specific event listings and psych sheets don't get posted until after the deadline. Way too many people seeding themselves with specific times trying to get seeded into the top-8, if we posted early psych sheets.

I've found that posting rosters while entries are open can help boost numbers. People see that their friends are going, and gives them more reason to go, too.

I've had people contact me in the past (more than once) to ask if so-and-so is entered in the meet because if they are, then this person will enter different events where they have a better chance of winning. That's the reason why we don't publish the entrants until the entry period is closed - people will game the system to get the coveted "national champion" patch any way they can.
