The following policy was instituted for the 2022-2023 competition season in order to ensure fair and equitable access to events for teams on event waitlists.

  • During Standard Registration, if the event is full, then only teams that have registered for two or fewer events are eligible to be swapped from that organization.
  • REC Foundation staff will have the ability to manually override this policy if a certain situation warrants an exception, but it would not be the expectation that teams would be allowed to swap if they are ineligible.  Therefore, these exceptions would be rare.
  • When event registration is closed, teams can not be swapped by the coach/mentor. At that point the Event Partner has the authority to allow a team swap or not.
