NYSA Cornwall Dates and Reference

Parents and Swimmers,

I want to keep everyone informed as we move through the first week of practice!  Please be sure to read this email completely, some information may be repetitive, but I want to make sure I have everything in one place for you to use as reference for the start of the season.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions!

Chris

  • CLICK HERE for the September – December Mount St. Mary Schedule
  • Updates will be posted to the News Section with the heading “NYSA Cornwall Practice Schedule”

Meet Schedule

Please register your child as soon as possible for all meets you plan to attend.  Some have no events posted, but you can still declare your child’s intension to attend and the coaches will select event for them. If you do not plan to attend the entire meet (all listed days) or have any special requests please communicate those with the staff by writing it in the notes section directly below their declaration of intent.  All meets are limited to running their sessions around 4 hours and must close registration as at some point to maintain this timeline. Other meets limit the number of entries from each attending to team to control this issue. One such meet where we are limited by the numbers already is our extremely popular December travel meet in Boston MA at MIT. This meet also has qualification standards that must be achieved. Even if your child has not yet achieved these standards but if you have any possible interest in attending this meet you must sign up ASAP before all the spots are full. This meet is already filling quickly.
