There are 2 dates, Close and Valid.
Close – The close date means everything that date and before are included on the list. Everything after, is not included. So if the close date is Feb 12 and the athlete is in an event on Feb 13, the results from the 13th will not show up until the next list.
Valid – This is the day the list becomes valid and the points from the list can be used for seeding and to set penalties. The confusion is that there are usually 3-4 days between close and valid.
