 All entry questions should go to your coach!

GCSTO CORE In-Seasonal Meet Schedule

Each level on our team (Novice, Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4 & Level 5) will have a CORE set of swimming meets on their schedule in which athletes are expected to participate. All athletes in those levels will automatically be entered into the swimming meets listed as CORE meets for their level. Note that for Novice swimmers this will be for, ONLY, those Novice swimmers who are have paid the $125 registration fee to participate in USA Swimming meets. In any case, if a family absolutely cannot participate in one of their CORE meets they must contact their coach to be removed from the entries. It is the responsibility of the family to insure that this is done prior to the final meet entry deadline. No fees will be assessed for withdrawing from the meet prior to the entry deadline.

 GCSTO CORE Championship Season Meet Schedule

Competing Novice and all Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4 & Level 5 swimmers will have a CORE set of Championship swimming meets on their schedule in which athletes are expected to participate. All athletes in that level will automatically be entered into these swimming meets. The championship swim meet series carry an automatic charge of $50 per athlete for those who chose not to participate. That charge will be assessed at the entry deadline to all swimmers withdrawing from those meets. Currently, only a single $50 charge will be assessed per swimmer per championship season. Novice swimmers, although expected to participate in their CORE Championship Meet, will not be subject to any financial assessment for failure to do so.

GCSTO Optional Swimming Meet Schedule

Each level on our team (Novice, Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4 & Level 5) will have an OPTIONAL set of swimming meets on their schedule in which athletes are allowed to participate above and beyond their CORE meets. Athletes will NOT, however, be automatically entered into the OPTIONAL swimming meets but must actually accept the invitation to participate in that meet once that invitation is sent out. As such, you must positively indicate entry into that meet by responding to that invitation with an acceptance. It is the responsibility of the family to insure that this is done prior to the final meet entry deadline for that meet.

MANDATORY REQUIREMENT FOR ANY SWIMMER PARTICIPATING IN A GCSTO SPONSORED OR Ohio Swimming, Inc. SPONSORED MEET
Any swimmer participating in an Ohio LSC meet or parent/guardian allowing a swimmer to participate in an Ohio LSC meet MUST read the following document for compliance with House BIll 143 of the 129th General Assembly:
