We’re all hoping to see you soon!
Things are really up in the air for everyone. The GSSSL has come up with some potential scenarios for the summer. Everything is based on when pools can open as well as any limit on crowd sizes. I’ve included the GSSSL information below.
We’ll try and make the best of any situation - so let’s plan on at least some sort of season!
GSSSL Update - Concerning Summer 2020
Based on the current situation, the GSSSL board proposes three potential scenarios for the 2020 season:
Option 1 -- pools open and practices are able to start by
- Season would operate on the current schedule
- Teams could opt to move June 25th meet to July 2nd
- All City would be hosted by View Ridge. View Ridge has bleachers and Dolphin watches which would significantly reduce costs for running All City. Kent will host All City in 2021
Option 2 -- pools open and practices are able to start by
- Abbreviated dual meet season with a total of 5 dual meets, with first meet on July 14th. We would either drop the first two meets or propose and alternative 5 meet schedule (to ensure fair distribution of home/away meets)
- Final dual meet would happen on Monday July 27th
- Girls prelims would be held Wed July 29th and Boys prelims on Thursday July 30th. Results of these meets for North and South would be merged to create All City line up (i.e. no Divisional meets this season)
- All City would be held on Tuesday August 4th at View Ridge and top 8 swimmers/relays would compete based on combined results from north and south.
Option 3 -- No competitive season if practices
can’t start by July 6th
- Clubs would have the option of running an abbreviated practice schedule with intra-squad meets if allowed by state/local guidelines
