Next swim session - Midwest, Spring and Summer sessions


Our Fall/Winter swim session is entering our last week, unless your swimmer has achieved a state time.  We enjoyed a great season with so many positive moments.  Our home meet was a success thanks to all of our GBSC families.  With regards to that success the board has established the rates for the upcoming swim sessions.  


The next session is the Midwest Regionals practice session.  This session is available to swimmers that have a qualifying time for the Midwest Regionals Swim meet (qualifying times link) or a B time or faster.  Attendance at the meet is not necessary to swim the practices.


The USA Swimming B Time standards can be found using this  link. Please note the Short Course Yard time Standards are on the second page of the document and are what should be used to compare your swimmer’s current swimming times to.  


The Midwest Regionals session continues on from the current Winter session, and ends with the Midwest Regionals Swim Meet at the University of Minnesota the weekend of March 28th/29th.  In March, practices will be Monday through Thursday.  The calendar has been updated; please note the location and time for each practice as there are some changes during the session due to pool availability.  All groups will start practice at the same time.  This session will cost each swimmer $75, regardless of level. Registration for the practice session is here.  Swimming in the meet is a separate fee - please see the  meet event information for those specifics and also indicate whether or not your child will be swimming at the meet.  


The next session, open to all swimmers, is our Spring Session.    There will be a 2 week break after the Midwest Regional meet on March 28/29th prior to starting this session.  Dates/times and location will be communicated once approval is received for the pool rental.  This session will end 6/7/20.  


Summer session is also open to all swimmers and will start June 8th and go through the Regional meet on July 17-19th.  State qualified swimmers will continue till their age group state meet.    Summer session will include several evening practices for Blue group swimmers and then morning practices along with several night practices a week for White/Red/Black group swimmers.  Dates/times and location will be communicated once approval is received.  This year if your swimmer swims for both Spring and Summer session there will be a $25 credit added to their account once the Summer session begins.



Spring (Mid April - June 7)

Summer (June 8 - end of July)














Please let me or any other board member know if you have any questions.

Thank you and we hope to see you back for another great swim session.  Don't forget our Annual Meeting/banquet will also be coming up this spring.  Details to follow.
