All divers must be registered with divemeets.com in order to submit a dive list. Divemeets.com has automated deadlines for submitting the dive list, which cannot be extended. The system will not accept any dive list or changes after the deadline. Please do not mail, email, fax, or drop off any diving sheet. The only divers who will participate are those who have been properly entered on Hy-Tek Team Manager by Jan. 21 at 6 p.m., AND who have registered and submitted a dive list on divemeets.com by Jan. 23 by 6 p.m. No more than 4 divers per gender per school may submit a dive list.
