GCY Partners


This is a detailed update sent to team pretaining this year to ALL GCY Swimmers, as EVERY swimmer on our team is eligible to attend at least one championship meet this year! We would like EVERY GCY SWIMMER to attend one OR more of these meets as this will be a large focus point for our practices the next several weeks!

As we go into our December Championships please take this opportunity to review meet information as well as register and/or double-check entries for our December Championship Meets, deadlines and links to the meet event page are as follows:

  1. December 1-3, YOTA Capital Classic, aka "Winter YMCA Nationals", at the TAC in Cary, NC: Qualifiers Only, eligibility timesdetails are on our meet event page: Deadline to enter is Friday, November 17th
  2. December 8-10, TYDE Holiday Invite, at the GAC in Greensboro, NC: ALL GCY swimmers are eligible, this could be a bonus meet opportunity for Capital Classic participants: Deadline to enter is Monday, November 27th
  3. December 6-9, SPEEDO Winter Junior Nationals, at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, TN: 6 GCY swimmers currently eligible/entered, late qualifiers from Capital Classic will have a deadline on Monday, December 4th, 12noon

These deadlines will be difficult to extend and it will be difficult to handle late entries and/or change requests.  If you have any changes/additions/questions that the system will not allow, please send a reply to this email, and look for an answer/update.  Here are a few commonly notes of importance:

  • TYDE events have still not been sent to us, so all you can do at this time is sign-up your name, you will get a separate email once events have been loaded for choosing BUT feel free to write in notes, thanks!
  • The Capital Classic meet events are loaded and you should be able to choose events for which you are qualified.  If you have any exceptions, special requests, etc please email or include in the notes field, deadline is November 17th, midnight.  Hotel Information is on our meet event page area hotels are VERY crowded, our hotel is closest geographically to the pool.
  • Junior Nationals relay/qualifiers have been entered, any late qualifiers from our YOTA Capital Classic Meet will be able to enter Monday, December 4th, see the event page for all other details.
