Qualifying Times Enforced

The 10th annual YMCA Winterfest Invitational has been officially sanctioned. This is a fast qualifying meet down in Maryland. Please only register if you make the time standards, but do so as early as possible. We will most likely be attending a non-qualifying meet the same weekend for all swimmers not heading to Winterfest. Please see the info packet and time standards for more information.

Please see the following sent from the meet hosts:

  • Limited to 475 swimmers per session. No spectators allowed.
  • All swimmers (including relay swimmers) must qualify for at least 2 individual events. All swimmers are allowed 4 individual events. No bonus time requirements for additional events for 2 and 3 event qualifiers. Swimmers qualifying for 5, 6, or 7 events may enter all the events they are qualified to swim - subject to stated entry limits (no changes from years past).
  • There *may* be additional meet fees to attend this event.
  • Currently, we are allowed to have relays, but are not allowed to have flyover starts for individual swims. This may change. There are two PVS meets (Mid Nov and December, 2nd – 5th) and UMD will be evaluating, and possibly readjusting the flyover decision, staging, and traffic flows.
  • 1 relay per team.
  • Meet will be streamed.
  • See current Covid protocols in the notice.
  • There may be timer volunteer positions required.
  • Session programs will be posted to the website for download.
