OPEN WATER SANCTION APPLICATION INFORMATION

  • See information below

This memo will provide you with a general overview of the new USA Swimming Open Water Meet Application in addition to the Sanctioning Process. In an effort to streamline the process of sanctioning an Open Water Race, and maintain the quality and safety of events, USA swimming is providing a new online meet application process for all LSCs. The Open Water Meet Application has been updated and is now online and ready to use.

For safety reasons, all USA swimming Open Water Sanctions/Approvals must be approved by the LSC and/or USA Swimming in order for Sanction to be granted. Once a host has completed the Application a copy will automatically be sent to the meet director, the LSC Sanction Chair and USA Swimming.   

Important: The requirement that all OW meet applications be submitted to a zone approver prior to sanction has been eliminated.

Please do the following:

  1. Provide updated link to members of the LSC and add it to LSC website
  2. Remove any old Open Water application processes that are out of date
  3. Add Sanctioned races to your LSC meet Calendar
  4. Update LSC rules, bylaws and/or Policies as necessary to reflect these changes.
