The objective of this program is to rank and recognize the top high school dual meet teams in
each classification. Enter your best dual meet line-up utilizing official times from any official,
regularly scheduled high school meet (no times from time trials/disqualifications/USS or YMCA
meets or any other non-high school meet). Times can come from different meets. Each time is
given a point value based on the official NISCA Power Point Tables. The tables are designed to
equate quality of a swimming time or diving total from event to event and from boys to girls.
Try different combinations to see which one gives you the highest point value. Some meet
management programs contain the Power Point tables and can do your entry for you if you
have your season long data entered.
1. Click on either “National Dual Meet Application – Boys” or “National Dual Meet
Application – Girls” in the Navigation column to the right
2. The entry spreadsheet will download and you can save it to your computer.
3. Open the sheet and on the first tab at the bottom, put in the names of your swimmers
and their grade.
4. Go to the second tab at the bottom and fill in the information at the top of the sheet.
a. You’ll need your 9-12 enrollment.
b. Next to school type, choose public or private and choose coed or single sex.
(Remember – the coed or single sex cell describes your school, not your entry.)
c. Next to entry information, choose Boys or Girls, depending on the team you are
d. If you do not fill in all the information at the top, the sheet will not compute
5. Put in your best lineup.
a. To enter names, use the pulldown menu in each cell; if you put in your roster on
the first tab, your athletes will automatically populate the pulldown menu.
b. To enter times or point-totals, just type in the best time/total with no
punctuation – the “:” and the “.” will automatically be inserted in the right spot.
c. Play around with athletes in different events until you find your best lineup – you
can always save your work and return to it, later.
6. Once you’ve got your best lineup, email the spreadsheet as an attachment to Claude
7. We have converted to an all-electronic entry system – you do not need to mail a hard
copy or a copy of your membership card. Simply email the completed spreadsheet – we
can verify your current membership status simply from your name and school.
