Dear North Texas Swimming
Coaches, Officials, Parents, and Athletes,
We held a North Texas Swimming Board of
Directors meeting last night. One of the major items we discussed
was September swim meets and sanctioning. After much
discussion surrounding the concept of ‘crawl, walk,
run’ and ensuring the safety of all athletes and members, the
following motions were PASSED for September
Provided the sanctioning authority given by
USA Swimming is not more restrictive, for the month of September
2020, North Texas Swimming Inc. will sanction Intrasquad, Dual
meets, meets with no more than 6 teams and multi-location virtual
meets, with no more than 80 swimmers per session, except for a
facility that has 16 or more 25 yd lanes, the maximum number of
swimmers per session is increased to 120. Exceptions can be
considered by the NTSi Board of Directors.
sanction application for any meets taking place Oct 15, 2020 or
after, complete and correct sanction application and meet
announcement must be submitted no less than 30 days prior to the
first day of the meet. The current fines & fees for
missing the deadline and re-sanctioning as stipulated in the NTSi
Policy and Procedures will remain in place.
cannot stress the fact that we must work diligently to ensure
current COVID safety protocols are actively enforced at all times.
If teams have not held a swim meet under new COVID
restrictions, I would highly encourage team leaders and meet
officials to reach out to the following persons for guidance in
determining effective meet protocols and
