How to Become a Meet Host:
Ohio Swimming offers 2 competitive season calendars.  Short Course season generally runs September through March and Long Course season generally runs April through July.  For each season, USA Swimming clubs are welcome and encouraged to submit a bid declaration for a meet(s) that will appear on the OSI meet calendar.  The Short Course (SC) season bidding period is between Jan-March and Long Course (LC)  bidding period is between June-August.  The OSI Sanctioning Chair maintains formal bidding procedures, which USA Swimming clubs agree to abide by.

CONFLICTS:  Bidders are strongly encouraged to resolve any pool conflicts and/or re-arrange bids so that the OSI calendar best meets the needs of OSI clubs and athletes.  After the bidding closes, the Sanctioning Chair will review the bids and resolve any remaining conflicts or address any scheduling concerns.

What Is The Purpose Of The Sanction Appeal Process?
1) To establish a consistent appeal process for a host whose request for sanction or approval is denied by an LSC.
2) To allow for review of denials to make certain such denials are not limiting competitive opportunities for athletes.
