YMCA Swimming Festival Information

Meredith Griffin

In the absence of YMCA of the USA’s annual national championship, which was cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic’s convening restrictions and safety considerations for athletes, a collective of coaches and volunteers from local YMCAs is organizing a coordinated spring competitive opportunity for YMCA swimmers who have achieved 2020 Short Course YMCA National Championship time standards. This competition is organized and conducted entirely by local YMCAs and is not sponsored, organized, or conducted by the YMCA of the USA.

Competitions may be held locally or regionally based on existing CDC or state health and safety regulations. Results will be compiled for national rankings and awards.  All competition to be completed by April 11, 2021.

In conjunction with this competitive opportunity, a virtual celebration will be held upon the conclusion of competition and will include special features such as athlete-led devotions, senior recognition and Leader Board announcements. More details to come.
