USA: LONG COURSE Champs at Bowling Green
Please see this important message regarding Long Course Champs at Bowling Green!
Message from Ohio
Thank you for your patience as we navigate through this unique championship format. Having only 2 LCM sites with greater interest than facility capacity has made planning more challenging.
The 2021 Summer championship was not intended to
have time standards as there are still ripple effects from the
pandemic (many athletes did not have meet opportunities over the
past 1.5 years). Because there were only 2 options for a Long
Course Meet, the “A” time standard was used as a
first pass to control numbers.
With that being said, we have additional space at each of the LCM facilities! Each team will be able to bring additional athletes, based on a fixed percentage The percentage was calculated using (1) estimated summer roster numbers, (2) current entries and (3) remaining facility capacity.
This is GOOD NEWS for LTPY! We may add 19 additional swimmers to the Long Course Championship in Bowling Green. LTPY swimmers age 15 & Older may attend this meet if they sign up (Chris Patterson, Carson Loughrey, Connor Kilrain, Caroline Heym, Meggie Gehring, Alex Chen, Misha Ahuja, Aidan Reitter) -- all remaining openings for Long Course Champs will be determined by the swimmers closest to the A time standard if there are more than 19 swimmers. All other swimmers can participate in Short Course Champs as well as though that prefer to swim short course vs long course -- we are still waiting on short course Champs info!
Please sign up by Monday, June 14th and I will confirm by June 15th whether your swimmer may attend Long Course Champs!
