2018 Niagara LSC Meets

For the benefit of those new to USA swimming, here is a brief explanation of some of the meets that Niagara LSC hosts throughout the season. Some of these require that swimmers have achieved qualifying times to enter and swim in events.  A link to the time standards from the Niagara Swimming website is posted on our website, and qualifying times for each meet are included in the meet announcements. Always check the meet announcement for details specific to the meet. Thesemeets are all team meets. Participating clubs share in lane timing responsibilities at Niagara LSC meets.
