Email Update (3/15/2018):


Thank you for getting your entries done for the 2018 NCSA Age Group Championships…

We have posted the psych sheet on the website.  If you have proof of times that you need to send, please send those my way asap.  There is a report below the psych sheet with the proofs we still need.


We are working on timelines (have to tweak by hand, since 13-14 50s are seeded with 100 times), but we’ll have that out shortly (later today)… but all timelines should be done by 1pm each day in both pools.  Timelines for finals are posted on the web.

There is only one VIP box left (9 out of 10 have sold), fill out the form on the web asap if your parents want the last box on deck!

We’ll be sending out additional info on the meet shortly, but if you have any other questions, send them our way.

Thanks everyone!
