its for fun for the kids.....Just let them swim and hang out with their friends and have a good time. If they get disqualified they will know better next year...even a seasoned swimmer will get dq'd it is just part of the game. Good Luck to all Sun.

The problem with the DQ's last night wasn't the fault of the officials. 2011 was an especially short season. Not enough time to get young kids swimming legal strokes in 4 weeks. Kids that didn't have legal strokes shouldn't have been in the event.
