Clubs can enter more than one team in one age group of a division as long as their first registered team has the maximum number of competitors. However, swimmers can only enter one free combination event.
The overall points tally used for the Combo Cup rankings will use the highest score if a club has more than one team entered into an event.
What is the format of the competition?
The free combination is a fun routine to watch with up to 10 swimmers in the water.
Teams will swim one continuous routine but there will be segments where different numbers of swimmers will perform.
The time limits for the routines is three minutes, except for the 15 – 18 Years age group of Division Two, for which the limit is four minutes.
