About The YMCASwimming Festival: In the absence of YMCA of the USA’s annual National Championship, which was cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic’s convening restrictions and safety considerations for athletes, a collective of coaches and volunteers from local YMCAs did organized a summer long course competitive opportunity for YMCA swimmers who have achieved 2020 Long Course YMCA National Championship time standards. This competition is organized and conducted entirely by local YMCAs and is not sponsored, organized, or conducted by the YMCA of the USA.Swimmers with at least 1 National Y Time standard cut could swim additional 3 bonus events. All of our SPYNATION competed in four individual events.
