CARD Winter Short Course season conclusion

Eric Brindley

Hello CARD families,

As most of you know, Indiana Swimming has taken the unprecedented step of cancelling both the Senior and Age Group State meets in an effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

CARD was planning to hold a sanctioned time trial next week for those that were still trying to get a Zone cut or age group state record.  However, USA Swimming has now made the decision to suspend all their events, camps, conferences, and any occasion that requires large gatherings for the next 30 days.  They've also recommended that the LSC's and member clubs suspend all USA Swimming sanctioned competitions across the country for the next 30 days as well.  As such, CARD will no longer be holding the time trial event.

In the interest of the health and welfare of our CARD swimmers and their families, we will end the the winter short-course season, effective immediately.  Our current plan is to pick back up in April for the start of summer/long course season, but will monitor USA Swimming and government recommendations.  We'll update you all as we have more information.

If you have questions, please let me know.

Thank you for your understanding.
