GCY MAKOS MARCH/APRIL CHAMPIONSHIP EXPLANATIONS!
GREAT JOB AT GYSSA LEAGUE CHAMPS MAKOS, we will email out results shortly!
Below are explanations of ALL of the remaining GCY March Championship Meets, click the link for meet event pages with FULL details, GOOD LUCK GCY SWIMMERS! We were very detailed here in recommending which meet to do, so please review, we tried to address a few of the more common questions/scenarios and one important note for all: Meet Entry DEADLINES are APPROACHING FAST, the USRY deadline is tomorrow, Monday, March 5th, 9:00pm, FIRM!
All GCY swimmers are eligible for USRY Champs IF qualifying times are made, AND 3 closed YMCA sessions have been swum. YMCA National participants who DID NOT swim at Capital Classic in December MUST DO at least 1 session at USRY to get eligible for YMCA Nationals. LAST CHANCE TO QUALIFY FOR YNATS (along w/ TH States, see below). Entry Deadline for GCY is Monday, March 5th, 9:00pm, FIRM, we will then email entries by MIDNIGHT same night! IF you are ALREADY fully loaded for YMCA Nationals, and did Capital Classic, it is recommended you do Tar Heel States locally (pool set-up is identical to YNATS, and warm-ups will be practice-like). But, if you are GOING FOR A YMCA NATIONAL CUT, or IF THIS IS YOUR FINAL SHORT COURSE MEET, wear your FASTEST SUIT and compete in your selected events FULLY.
IF YOU CANNOT ENTER AN EVENT ONLINE THAT YOU QUALIFIED FOR AT GYSSA WRITE DETAILS IN NOTES FIELD AND WE WILL OVERRIDE!
Deadline approaching, Tuesday, March 6th, will be our deadline and we will turn our entries in Wednesday, March 7th. AG Sectionals is the fastest of all swimmers in the Southeast Section of the United States for all USA/YMCA teams (fastest 14&Under meet we attend). All available GCY coaches with swimmers competing will be at this meet. Entry encouraged for qualifiers, unless focusing on YMCA Nationals...but this is not a "swim through" meet, must compete in fastest suit!
The meet deadline is also Tuesday, March 6th, FIRM, as this meet FILLS UP! This is LAST CHANCE to qualify for events at YMCA Nationals. IF you are ALREADY fully loaded for YMCA Nationals, you do not need to enter unless you want to, most of us need to keep practicing! If you are COMPETING or GOING FOR A YMCA NATIONAL CUT, or IF THIS IS YOUR FINAL SHORT COURSE MEET, wear your FASTEST SUIT and compete in your selected events FULLY. Coach Brad will be attending this meet, as well as all available GCY coaches with swimmers competing will be at this meet. ALL AGES ELIGIBLE, NO TIME STANDARDS, remember if you are 14&under and have a sectional cut, cannot compete in that particular event.
This is our peak meet for the Short Course season! We have a TEAM RECORD 20 individual qualifiers, click link for all information, LAST CHANCE to qualify is at USRY or Tar Heel States, this is one of the FASTEST MEETS IN THE UNITED STATES, and will be fully covered by SWIMSWAM, USA SWIMMING, LIVE STREAMING, OLYMPIANS, MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKERS, COLLEGE RECRUITERS, AND EVEN VIDEO MONITORS for swimmers after each event!
WE PLAN TO HAVE LONG COURSE SCHEDULE OUT THIS WEEK, THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE!
