Starting in the 2015-2016 season the Northfield Swim Club will be a part of the Southern Alliance. This is a conference for teams in the south metro (Piranhas Swim Club (Richfield), Blackline Aquatics (Eagan/Apple Valley), Barracuda Aquatics Club (Bloomington), South Metro Storm Swim Club (Prior Lake/Lakeville), Blackdog Swim Club (Burnsville), Hastings Area Swim Team (Hastings), Tigershark Swim Club (Farmington)). The purpose of the conference is to provide teams with security of being in meets as teams in the conference will have priority for meets hosted by other teams in the conference.
Teams will meet before meet bids are due to MSI to discuss which weekends they would like to bid for and to have an idea of how many teams will go to their meets. As the season starts the host team will need to ask conference teams how many athletes they intend to bring. Teams outside of the conference are welcome to come, but teams in the conference get first priority. Coaches will work with each other to set up enough meets for various levels to promote swimming for all levels.
