2020 Georgia Age Group Select Camp, COVID-19 update
Parents, swimmers, and coaches,
As we are sure you are aware, there have been many meet and event cancelations in an effort to slow down the spread of COVID-19. USA-Swimming has mandated that all competitions be suspended until at least April 30 th.
Our LSC Age Group Select Camp scheduled to take place at Georgia Southern, May 22nd-24th, is outside that moratorium period. At this time, we are proceeding with registration and planning the camp in the hope that the situation will be stable and safe for all athletes and coaches traveling to the camp. We have also confirmed with Georgia Southern staff that currently, they expect to be able to host us on campus.
We understand, however, that this is a very fluid situation, to an unprecedented degree in modern times. So, should the timeline change and this year’s camp need to be canceled, we will issue full refunds for all those already registered. With this in mind, we ask that everyone proceed with registration as usual with our assurances that the LSC’s primary consideration when making the final decision on whether to proceed with the camp will be the safety, well-being, and health of all involved.
