SSC SPRING BLUE & GOLD MEET
 
 
The Spring Blue & Gold Meet is May 1-2, in Newtown Square, PA.
 
Swimmers attending the meet must bring the waiver form with them in order to compete in the meet.  Failure to sign the waiver form will result in not being allowed to compete in the meet.  Additionally, swimmers must complete the daily health screening on each day of participation in order to compete in the meet on that day.  These must be shown/presented to relevant SSC staff at the meet.
 
More information on the meet will be sent in a separate email.
 
 
SJAC JUNIOR CLASSIC
 
 
The Junior Classic is this weekend, now May 1-2 in Voorhees, NJ.
 
The meet is now a timed finals format.  There is also no more Friday for the meet.  All swimmers will now have 2:00 PM warm-ups, and 3:00 PM starts, on both Saturday or Sunday.
 
More information on the meet will be sent in a separate email.
 
 
SSC SPRING BLUE & GOLD MINI MEET
 
 
The Spring Blue & Gold Mini Meet is Friday, May 7, in Newtown Square, PA.  The deadline to sign up for the meet has passed.
 
While the meet director has not explicitly said this for this meet, the administrative staff is presuming that swimmers will have to fill out a waiver form, and must complete a daily health screening on the day of the meet, before attending the meet.
 
Warm-up information and other meet information will be sent out in the week leading up to the meet.
 
 
SSC BLUE & GOLD SPRING SPECTACULAR
 
 
The Blue & Gold Spring Spectacular is May 8-9 in Newtown Square, PA.  The deadline to sign up for the meet has passed.
 
While the meet director has not explicitly said this for this meet, the administrative staff is presuming that swimmers will have to fill out a waiver form, and must complete a daily health screening on the day of the meet, before attending the meet.
 
 
KA MAY MELEE MEET
 
 
The May Melee Meet is May 14-16 in Carlisle, PA.  The deadline to enter the meet has passed.
 
This is a scratchback meet, meaning that swimmers entered into the meet must confirm which events they will swim in on the day of the meet, during warm-up.  This is to minimize the number of open lanes in each session.
