MT Swimming Clarifies Attendance at Long Course State Rule for Zones Swimmers

Montana Swimming has clarified the rule about zones swimmers competing at Long Course State. In the past zones swimmers were required to compete at Long Course State. Through a proposal passed by the House of Delegates, this rule has been changed. 

Zones swimmers are now not required to complete at the Montana Swimming Long Course State Championships. However, Montana Swimming Zones swimmers must compete in six events (swim meets, AAA camp, attend USA Swimming convention, etc) including one (1) long course meet held in Montana that year prior to Zones as part of the criteria to qualify for the team. Any exceptions to this rule should be sent to the Zone Team Chair.

Zones gear will be handed out at Long Course State. Zones swimmers not in attendance at Long Course State must make prior arrangements to receive his/her/their gear.

Per the MT Swimming Zones Chair
