IOWA SWIMMING SHORT COURSE CHAMPIONSHIP MEET

February 25-28, 2021  Wellmark YMCA, Des Moines, Iowa

Hosted By Central Iowa Aquatics

The meet host and the Wellmark YMCA have taken enhanced health and safety measures – for you, guests, volunteers, and athletes. You must follow all posted instructions while attending this championship meet. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.  By attending the 2021 IASI Short Course Championships, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

By submitting your entries, you are confirming that the coaches attending the meet have reviewed and shared with the team - The Return to Competition Plan located on the YMCA website.

Preliminary Sessions (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) will be divided into sub-sessions to ensure the facility capacity is not exceeded. Teams and unattached athletes will be assigned to groups which will then be assigned to specific prelim sessions. These assignments will be available as soon as possible after entries close. All but the fastest women's and men's heats of the 1650 Freestyle will be swum fastest to slowest, alternating women/men such that the last (slowest heat) finishes just prior to the start of warmups for Session 7.

Positive Check-In for long distance freestyle, scratches from prelims, scratches from finals, session reports, heat sheets results and scores, will be accessible from this page - either directly or using a link.

NOTE: The 50 fly (events 3 and 4), 50 breast (events 13 and 14), 50 back (events 15 and 16) and the 100 IM (events 29 and 30) use the 100 of respective stroke and 200 IM for qualifying times and seeding. This requires that the meet entry file for TeamUnify and Team Manager has these events set up for the longer distance for entries to be entered and vetted. Please be assured they will be setup and swum for the shorter distances at the meet.  Note from Meet Host regarding Event File for 50 Strokes and 100 IM
