The meet announcement and entry time standards for the 2017 Winter Age Group Championship meet, to be held December 16-18 in Coronado, have been released by San Diego-Imperial Swimming.  Due to the immense popularity of the meet (over 800 swimmers attended the meet last year), many time standards are faster than last year.  It is highly likely that this meet will close out before the entry deadline, so early entries are encouraged!  Entries will be accepted beginning October 10, 2017.

To all San Diego North American Cup Challenge swimmers,

We are excited for the San Diego All Star Team to be together starting Thursday August 3rd at UCSD. Competition and housing will be at UCSD–Warren Hall Conference Center Housing and Pool.  If you are not familiar with the campus, Warren Hall and the pool are located on the east end of campus. Here is the link to the campus map.  Look for the 5 star which is the Warren Conference Center.  There will be a coach at the conference center at 12 noon to welcome you.  This is considered a tri-meet and all athletes have been entered in events that made that most sense for this meet.  There may be some events that you don’t swim often.  We will have the event list at warmups on Thursday.

Please make sure your athlete brings towels, toiletries, appropriate clothing and sleepware.  In honoring the diversity of athletes at this meet, rooming was randomly assigned.  Your athlete may be with fellow San Diego swimmers or with swimmers from Southern California and Mexico.  This is a great opportunity for them to establish new friendships!!  Rooming lists are set and cannot be changed.  Additionally, there is no need for spending money as everything is covered with your $225.00 check!

Parents, please note that parking is enforced on Thursday and Friday.  For Saturday and Sunday, there is no need to purchase a permit.  If you have any questions or need to get a hold of me, my number is 619-636-8730.

Greg Spire/San Diego NACC All Stars Head Coach
