Full 5-day meet (Tuesday thru Saturday)  Short Course Prelims / Long Course Finals

 

 

Swimmers, Coaches, Families and Volunteers;

 

We have spent the last few days like many of you have… glued to every update, hoping for this situation to turn.   The NCSA Board of Directors just met, and have decided to cancel our meets in Orlando (both Juniors and Age Group).  A few factors have gone into this decision:

  • The governor of Florida is making a strong recommendation that all mass gatherings be cancelled (as of 1230p today)
  • Florida Swimming just cancelled their Sr Champs at the Y that was slated to start this afternoon, with spectator restrictions, after the Governor’s announcement.
  • The changes we have all encountered/observed in the last 36 hours there is no guarantee that if we all get to Florida, and even if we can get the meet started, that we can finish (or even get everyone home in a safe/timely manner)
  • Several other factors in our talks with administrators and operators at every level of our sport that suggest there will be recommendations coming that will affect our meet operations.

We share your disappointment, personally, I have been running the March Juniors meet every year since the inception of the NCSA (2002)… for nearly half of my life. I have a daughter who made her first state times in the last few weeks have her state meet cancelled, teams scrambling to find pool time due to facilities shutting their doors left and right, athletes that have had their champ meets pulled out from under them… we’re all in the same boat right now, no good solutions for anyone… heartbreaking for all.

The NCSA Board will be meeting again in a few days and assessing possible reschedule dates, and how we process this, not only for the organization, but for our own programs as well… we all need a day or two to get our own stuff in order (travel arrangements, etc)…

Give us a few days to regroup… we’ll go from there.

Thanks everyone
