ZONE 3 WINTER CHAMPIONSHIPS 
Jan 14-16 2021
***NOW OPEN***
Entry Deadline : Wednesday, Jan 5th
 
The Zone 3 Winter Championships meet is OPEN FOR ENTRIES. The meet will be held at the new Indian Valley College Pool in Novato on Jan 14-16th. This is a team championship meet and we are going for points, so we need everyone qualified to get entered. Swimmers make sure to swim your best events each day. This is a qualifying meet, so all swimmers must meet the qualifying times in order to enter (most qualifying times are around a "B" time). This is a timed final championship meet, so there is only one session each morning. There will be relays in this meet and coaches will enter relays after all swimmers have entered. Below is a list of the qualifying time standards for our Zone 3 Winter Championships.  All swimmers must have achieved the time standard to be able to enter.
