The spring 2021 Central Zone Speedo Sectionals will be held from March 25 - 28 at two sites:  The Indiana University Natatorium in Indianapolis, IN, and Elkhart Health & Aquatics in Elkhart, IN.  The Section 3 task force, consisting of coach representatives from all the Section 3 LSCs, has been meeting since late spring in an effort to create a meet that will provide the best competitive opportunity this spring for qualified Section 3 athletes.  The meet will be conducted in LCM, with no relays, and on a timed-final basis with three sessions each day as follows:

  • Morning Women's Session
  • Afternoon Men's Session
  • Evening Championship Session

The evening championship session will consist of the top four seeded heats (as determined after the scratch deadline for that day's events) in all individual events except the 800 & 1500 Freestyle events in which case the top seeded heat will swim in the evening championship session.

 Below is the latest information from the CZ Section 3 task force (February 25): 

  • UPDATING TIMES:  Coaches will be able to update any currently entered athletes’ times in OME until March 21 at 9:00 PM Eastern.  This applies to athletes entered during the first entry period that ended on February 8, 2021.
  • NEW QUALIFIERS/NEW EVENTS:  The new qualifier/new event OME will open on March 1 and close on March 21 at 9:00 PM Eastern.  If your team has a new qualifier and you were not previously entered in the meet during the December reservation period, please contact Cindy Dial at [email protected] so she can direct you to your team’s site (Indianapolis or Elkhart).
