2022-23 Short Course Meet Schedule

Below are the list of upcoming meets which will be focal meets for all of our MLAC swimmers. As much of the specific information is not available yet, I’ve been able to acquire some of the more pertinent stuff to share with everyone now, especially for planning purposes. Please take a moment to review the Single Age time standards, which are derived from the Age Group time standards but do differ across the board. You’ll note that there is continuity between Silver Champs and Age Group Champs (fka Junior Olympics), so coaches will of course prioritize the path towards as many races at Pitt as possible in the backwards thinking of entry selection. The below grid is a great way to visualize (and compare calendars) the next two months of swimming and taking the next steps to fulfilling swimming goals.
