Despite our best efforts to keep the meet going as planned,  Wisconsin Swimming just informed us that they are pulling our sanction for the Central Zone Speedo Meet, which is based on USA Swimming's recommendation to pull all meet sanctions for 30 days,  
We are devastated and truly sorry. We tried our best to push through and host this meet because so many people have come from all over the country to compete this weekend. This was not our decision and is out of our control. We will be refunding entry fees for the meet. If you have any questions or concerns please let us know.

Statement for Teams at Sectionals from WSI

It is with great disappointment that I write to inform you that Wisconsin Swimming, Inc. has cancelled the 2020 Speedo Sectional Championship hosted by Madison Aquatic Club at the Pleasant Prairie RecPlex. 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are responding to an outbreak of respiratory disease named “SARS-CoV-2” and the disease it causes named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”). Although COVID-19 was first detected in China, it has now been detected in at least 60 locations internationally, including the United States and Wisconsin. Wisconsin Swimming is committed to following the guidance of local, state, and federal health authorities, including the recent State of Emergency Declaration by Governor Evers. Wisconsin Swimming maintains the strongest commitment to the health and safety of our athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers, parents, and families. 
It is not reasonable to hope COVID-19 will just go away, but if we can slow down its progress, we have a chance to avoid hospital overcrowding, decrease infections in at-risk populations, and decrease mortality from the disease. Most of us are a larger danger to others by spreading the COVID-19 virus than we are personally in danger from the virus. We should work to protect each other.
Given the above, and out of an abundance of caution, the decision was made to suspend the competition.  This was an extremely difficult decision, but it is one that Wisconsin Swimming believes is in the best interest of our broader swimming family.
I recognize there are many questions are we are working as quickly as possible to answer those questions in the most efficient and accurate way as additional information about this evolving situation becomes available. 
Thank you for doing your part to keep our community safe and healthy during this incredibly challenging time.
