The 2020 North Central Regional Swim Meet has now been cancelled. Teams have been notified and should be sending out notice to all participants.
YMCA of the USA (Y-USA) is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all attendees at our competitive events. As such, we have been monitoring the recent spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) as it relates to all attendees at our upcoming YMCA Regional Swim Meet to take place at the Wellmark YMCA in Des Moines IA, March 21 and 22, 2020. Earlier today an emergency committee meeting was held between members of the Iowa State Alliance of YMCAs, the YMCA of Greater Des Moines (Host Site) the Iowa Regional Swimming Committee to discuss the upcoming event.
Unanimously, members from all parties on the call agreed that it is our social responsibility, and out of an abundance of caution, to cancel the 2020 YMCA Regional Swim Meet. This decision was made in order to reduce the risk to all athletes, coaches and families based on the recommendation from the CDC and the IDPH on avoiding large gatherings and social distancing. We did not make this decision in haste, and we know that this news will be disappointing to you and your swimmers.
