GCSTO Swim Meet Information
 GCSTO's On-Line Entry System
 Here is the link for you to use to create a password for a account for the online meet entry system: You can click on it and it will take you to ACTIVE Network’s page that has a log-in for new users. Enter your e-mail address and continue to the next page and set up your account. You will receive an  e-mail back with a password to use for the future. You may be able to change that password once into the system. PLEASE WRITE YOUR PASSWORD and such down so that you have it handy at all times. When we start using the system the invitation e-mails will have the same link.

   A – We will post the meets that we have information on here for you to see. If we do not yet have the information then you will not see it here until we get that.

     B – When we open entries for the meet we will send everyone an email inviting them to the meet. DO NOT REPLY TO THAT EMAIL TO ACCEPT OR DECLINE. Go to your own portal at to do so. Again, do not reply to that email as it looks as if it is coming directly from me and my email but it is simply a form invitation being generated by the entry system using my email as the ghost sender.

    C – If you do not get an invitation and are eligible for the meet (as the invitation may have gone to your spam file, been accidentally deleted or simply never arrived) you can simply go to your portal at and enter into the meet.

 D – If you accept you will provide the system with payment (credit card) information unless you have already put that in and told the system to save that. You will then see an immediate charge of $5 to enter the meet. You do NOT have the option to pick events as your coach will do that so the only thing you will be charged for at the time you accept is that $5 entry fee. Once your coaches pick your events (and only after your events have been chosen) you will then be charged for those individual events. There will be no relay charges assessed to any individual accounts as we will pay for relays from the general entry fund. Once everything is complete you will receive another email about the meet confirming all of their event entries, as well.

     E – You will see only one other associated charge. Active Network charges 1.8% to your credit card for all financial transactions so you will also then see a small charge to Active Network for that, as well, on your credit card, each time you enter a meet.  

***  All entry questions should go to your coach *** 

  Again… you accept or decline through your portal, if you accept then you pay the $5 entry fee and that’s it, your coach then enters them in their events and then you receive an email letting you know those events and the associated charges. Again, please NOT respond to email address ( with your acceptances or declines.  

Any swimmer participating in an Ohio LSC meet or parent/guardian allowing a swimmer to participate in an Ohio LSC meet MUST read the following document for compliance with House BIll 143 of the 129th General Assembly:
Ohio Department Of Health Youth Sports Organization Concussion Form

Note: Please do not bring any peanuts or peanut containing products into any of our swimming meets out of respect to those with severe peanut allergies. Thanks!
