Dear NCS Coaches,
OME is now open and is the only method for submitting NCS Age Group SC Champs and NCS Senior SC Champs entries. Find the meets on the USA Swimming site under Events/Online Meet Entry. https://www.usaswimming.org/DesktopDefault.aspx?TabId=1424&Alias=Rainbow&Lang=en&mode=myavailablemeets OME remains open until 6:00 PM on the Monday of each meet week. TM events files have been posted on the NCS website meet page to help with your entry planning and the meet announcements are there as well. https://www.swimnc.com/2016-2017-short-course-meet-schedule/ There is also an NCS OME users guide available if you’re new to the process or need a refresher. Find it here: https://www.swimnc.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/NCS-OME-New-Users-Guide-v4.pdf
Remember that while you are allowed to update entry times for your swimmers until the entry deadline, OME will NOT do this automatically. If swimmers improve their times after you have entered them, you need to log back into OME and select the faster times for them. Also, please remember to use the Entry Fee Summary and Waiver sheet in each meet announcement to calculate what you owe to the hosts. The entry fees calculated in OME are not correct if you have any relay only swimmers on your roster.
If you have any entry questions, please don’t hesitate to call or email.
