Swim Meets --2021 (Official Virtual TSA Schedule)

Summer 2021: The Cary Park Sea Dragons participate in the TSA Swim League and can swim in up to 8 swim meets. There are typically 6 dual meets, a Cary City Invitational meet and a TSA Championship meet. We encourage all swimmers to attend each swim meet.

UPDATE: This season, the TSA is starting up after an unofficial season in 2020 due to COVID. Several teams were not able to form this season (2021). The TSA has decided that no rankings will change this season and is allowing virutal meets. There will still be an official season in that there will be Division trophies for winning teams. The TSA is still working to host an official TSA meet at the end of the season, but it is currently unclear whether it will be virtual or in person at several facilities simultaneously. It will not be held at TAC. The Cary City meet will not be held this year due to it being impossible to host that meet in a socially distanced way.

For our dual meet schedule, we will be conducting all meets HOME at Cary Park in a Red vs. Black format (like last year) and simultaneously competing virtually with one or more teams. The Red vs. Black competition will give us something to cheer for at home, and we will find out later how we did against our virutal components in the TSA.

Due to all meets being at HOME, some meets are on Tuesday evenings, and some are on Saturday mornings. Make up days due to weather (thunder storms) will be either Wednesday evenings or Sunday mornings following the original meet date.
