  1. Make a meet information sheet. Need help? Here is a pdf template. (Open with Adobe Acrobat for an interactive form, top right of pdf "Open with a different viewer").
  2. Find a referee. Need help? Email Ed Stanc, the ILMSA Officials Chair: officials AT ilmsa DOT com
  3. Fill out the online USMS sanction application form.
  4. Fill out the "Combined Sanction Form". See below.
  5. Send the "Combined Sanction Form" along with a $50 check made out to: ILMSA Sanctions Chair, 800 Oak Street, PO Box 344, Danville, IL 61834  
  6. Wait to hear back from USMS with questions or a confirmation.
  7. Once your meet is sanctioned, it will appear in the Upcoming Meets section of the ILMSA website, USMS forums, and the USMS calendar. For more detailed information, please see the "Meet Director's Checklist."
  8. Send a zipped Hy-Tek Meet Manager backup file of the meet to:  results AT ilmsa DOT com    via email within 14 days of the meet date to be eligible to receive your sanction fee refund.

Questions about these forms and other sanctions requirements can be emailed to the Sanctions Chair at sanctions AT ilmsa DOT com. All of the forms found here are saved in PDF format, and require a PDF reader (such as Abobe Reader) for viewing.
