MEET ENTRY PROCEDURES
Meet announcements are posted on the Machine Aquatics website under the “Meets” page. Entry deadlines are typically Tuesdays at 5:00 pm. All entry deadlines for the season are posted on the “Schedule” page for the season.
To register for a meet, please read the meet announcement first. You can find the meet announcement on the Meets page under the individual meet or on the PVS website(www.pvswim.org) under the Meets/Schedule section. The meet announcement will include information about the date, location, events, entry limits, and possible timeline for the meet. Each meet is different, so please read each announcement carefully. Be sure to review the meet announcement with your swimmer(s) before you select events. Please reach out to your swimmer’s coach if you have questions about their events.
All registrations for meets are done using the TEAM UNIFY system. This is the same account that you used to register for the team. At the beginning of the Machine season, you will receive an email with the password for the TEAM UNIFY system.
Once you have logged into the system, you will need to declare you are participating in the meet. Once you declare for the meet, the meet events for which your swimmer is qualified will automatically pop up. Click on the events you would like to swim. Remember to hit save or your entry will not be saved in the system. If your swimmer is not qualified for a meet, you do not need to indicate they are not attending.
Once your entries are in the system the coaches will review them. They will either approve or reject them. If a swimmer’s events are “rejected” the coach will select another event for the swimmer. The day after the entry deadline an Entry Report will be posted in the “Meets” page on TEAM UNIFY. Once entries are submitted to the host team NO changes or additions can be made. Check the Entry Report as soon as it’s available to make sure that your swimmer is in the correct events.
A few days prior to the meet, the host team will post a psych sheet on the PVS website (www.pvswim.org). Machine will also post a copy of the psych sheet on the “Meets” section of our website. Please make sure to check it. It is the swimmer’s responsibility to check the psych sheet and report any errors. If you find an error, please contact Becky Widman at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. If you wait until the last minute, no changes can be made.
If you have any questions about meet entries or need assistance in the process, please contact Becky Widman at email@example.com.
