Coaches and teams are invited to a technical meeting via Zoom on Thursday, January 18, at 7:30 pm. Lane assignments will be randomly pre-drawn and announced by Wednesday, January 17, 2024.

The entry fee for athletes is set at $800, with a discounted rate of $750 per person for teams comprising ten or more athletes. Patrons can attend the event for a fee of $200 per person.
