The Northwest Age Group Regional meet will not be taking place in 2021 at the King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way, WA. Governor Inslee implemented a 4 Phase Approach to Safe Re-opening of Businesses in the state of Washington back in May. King County is currently in Phase 1 of the 4-phase plan. It would require King County to be in Phase 4 of the re-opening plan for the meet to take place at the King County Aquatic Center. The PN Technical Planning Committee discussed this topic at a recent meeting and the consensus of the group was that the regional meet would not happen in 2021 based upon the timeline he has put in place for moving from one phase to the next. As we found out with the 2020 meet many teams had put forth considerable effort and expense with the travel arrangements for the meet, we wanted to be sure this didn’t happen again in 2021. I know that many teams start planning for their March travel meets in January and felt this would be enough notice about the meet being cancelled.
Thanks for your understanding and wishing everyone well for 2021.
In light of the continuing restrictions on youth sports competitions in the state of Washington, the Western Region Section Board has made the decision to cancel the 2021 Speedo Section meet scheduled to be held March 11-14 in Federal Way, Washington. Work is being done at this time on available options for competition, including support of the 2021 Speedo Section meet scheduled for March 25-28 in Phoenix, Arizona. Additional information will be shared as soon as it is available.
