Suspension of Sanctioned Competitions for 30 Days in Niagara LSC
Dear Niagara Swimming Members,
Earlier today, USA Swimming released a statement regarding their suspension of all of their events, camps, conferences, or any occasion that requires individuals to travel and gather for the next 30 days.
The statement, also, ‘strongly recommends that our Local Swimming Committees (LSC) and clubs suspend all USA Swimming sanctioned competitions across the country for the next 30 days.’
As such, the Niagara Board of Directors conducted an emergency conference call and voted unanimously to suspend all sanctions and sanctioned meets for the next 30 days beginning at 12:01am, Friday, March 13th, 2020. This means that any previously approved sanctions for meets within the Niagara LSC during the 30-day suspension are no longer valid. The sanction and meet suspension period will end at 11:59pm on Sunday, April 12th, 2020.
We will continue to communicate further information that may impact the future of our sport as it becomes available.
