USA Swimming are discussing sanctions for meets in August.  No decision as yet.  The USA Swimming Board has clearly stated that even when sanctions are allowed, the LSC has the final say.  The LSC must sanction meets in accordance with local and state COVID guidelines.  The LSC has the responsibility to define how the meets will run with regard facility requirements, social distancing, mask, hand-washing, etc., etc.

USA Swimming will be sending a notice early next stating their decision about Regional Meets.  Please watch for this email to arrive.

The Time Standards will stay as is until December 31st at which time the USA Board will re-evaluate.  Currently, there are 1220 athletes who have qualified for Olympic Trials.

Coaches please keep a look out for upcoming Webinars and Zoom calls related to Virtual Meets and Virtual Leader Board Program. Patrick Murphy, Larry Herr and Brandan Hansen are working jointly to put together these programs.

Also, take advantage of the upcoming Virtual Coaches Clinic with Jim Ellis – Saturday July 11, 2020 from 12 – 2 pm

Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Stay Inclusive
