Regionals

Teams throughout New England are assigned to 5 different sites for a weekend in February. Qualifying times must be achieved for this meet, and our goal is to have a good majority of our swimmers qualify.  We expect all those who qualify will attend Regionals.   This is an exciting first step in achieving time standards.

 If you have questions about specifics meets for your swimmer please feel free to talk to your child’s coach.
