USA SWIMMING REGISTRATION/RENEWAL!
All swimmers in the AG-1, AG-2, Pre-Senior, Advanced, Elite, and Senior practice groups MUST register with USA-Swimming for the 2014-2015 season. Swimmers in all other practice groups MAY register, but are not required.
Note that the fee has increased from $60 to $62 for 2015!
If you are not currently registered for 2014, you'll need to do this before you can be entered into any of the USA meets on our schedule! Please return all forms and checks made out to "ILLINOIS SWIMMING" to Coach Bryan (DO NOT leave at the membership desk!).
YMCA MEETS NOW AVAILABLE FOR REGISTRATION!
Two of the "YMCA" meets on our practice schedule are now available for registration at the membership desk. Please note that for these two meets...only those swimmers who have been registered at the YMCA membership desk will be entered into these meets!
Keep in mind that for all other meets...you will need to sign-up with the Google Doc on the link above in order for your swimmer(s) to be entered!
YMCA DISTRICT AND STATE CHAMPIONSHIP UPDATES!
Following our fall District meeting, there are several updates for you to consider and to know about for our Championship meets in March. Please take note of the following:
The Chicago DISTRICT Championships will be held on one day (Sunday, March 1) and will be changed to a Timed Final format. Girls will swim in the AM session and Boys in the PM session. Swimmers will be allowed to compete in up to 4 individual events, or 3 individual events plus relays--depending upon their age group.
The CLASSIC Championships will now be fully integrated into the DISTRICT Championship meet. That means that swimmers who have not achieved a District qualifying time will still be competing in the District Championships and in the same events as District-qualifying swimmers...but in the Classic "division". All individual events will be scored and awarded in the District & the Classic division. To better understand this...it will be run and scored much like a High School "Varsity/JV" format.
Swimmers who have fewer than 4 District qualifying times will be allowed to compete in the Classic division of their other "non-qualified" events so that they will get to swim a minimum of 4 individual events at this combined Championship meet.
YMCA STATE will be held at Lake Central HS in St. John, IN (about the same distance from us as Rec-Plex). We have a block of rooms reserved for those that wish to stay overnight. If you know that your swimmer WILL QUALIFY for YMCA State...you may want to book a room now just in case...info below.

GET THE BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE - BECOME AN OFFICIAL!
Become a Meet Official! Becoming a meet official is an interesting and easy way to become more involved in the sport of swimming. Officials training classes occur throughout the year and the training is paid for by the team. Officials play an important role for the swimmers, providing the necessary guidance and direction that allows them to compete legally throughout their careers.
