Jan 29 Updates!

Posted by Black Dog Swimming at Jan 29, 2023 9:56AM PST ( 0 Comments )

No practice changes this week!
Last chance for times prior to MRCs is RFSC’s meet on 2/19. This meet is one day, two session (12&U am and 13&O pm) in River Falls, WI. No time standards, and no times are accepted.

MRC registration will open this week. Your portal already reflects your child’s qualifying events (except OMNI Winter Classic). We encourage this final meet to celebrate your swimmer’s hard work this season.

  • Verified times Pre-Bronze through Gold are required for 50s and 100s
  • Bronze through Gold required for 200s
  • 400 and above requires a Silver or Gold time.

High School Swimmers: Your high school events count as verifiable for entry into MRCs (with non-meet mobile proof). Please sign up for High School Boys in registration if you plan to come back after Sections/JV Champs (assuming you will not be at MSHSL State)-the remaining weeks of the season are free for you.

NOTE:
USA Swimming memberships are mandatory for participation in our program. About one third of our current team is in need of renewal by Dec 31. This affects your ability to participate in meets—and practices— and is not always a smooth process to renew. Please watch for emails reminding you to do this, I would like everyone renewed by mid-December so we don’t have trouble with any January meets.
