Dear North Texas Swimming Members,
It has been over a year since the pandemic began and the North Texas Board of Directors has worked diligently to support our athletes and teams in navigating through these trying times. We focused on the best way to reopen and resume competition, and with the support of all of our volunteers and teams, we have been able to successfully provide these opportunities for our athletes to safely compete. As we look across the country, we feel very fortunate as we are one of a few LSCs that has been able to run so many sanctioned meets during this pandemic.
As we move forward, and strategically plan beyond the pandemic, we are restating already established processes with relevant practices. In order for our athletes to have better anticipation and planning for forthcoming meets, we are updating the calendar and meet bid process. We have made proposed updates to the Policy and Procedures to support proper implementation of our NTSI meet calendar and the meet bid process. Attached is the calendar and Policy & Procedures the NTSI Board has approved which will be up for ratification in the April HOD meeting. In the interim, as teams are planning for meets in the upcoming months, Sanctioning Chairs will follow the attached calendar and sanctioning process. Exception requests can be submitted to the Board for consideration.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or another board member.
Suzanne Dangelmaier, General Chair NTSI
