This will be open to all Tigersharks, including High School aged swimmers.

Last Chance Meets
We will be listing info about last chance meets here as it becomes available to us.


Remember team policy states that:
1. Last chance meet can be used to make cuts for YMCA Zones and Nationals, but times will not be used to determine who swims on which relays.
2. Last chance meets cannot be used to break an already established team record.  




High School Post Season
Post Season practices for High School aged swimmers will begin on March 2nd and run through March 19th.  Once we see who has qualified for and plans to attend  USA Sectionals and YMCA Nationals we will schedule any additional practices that are needed.
 
Location: Stow Wellness Center
Coaches: Dan, Peter, & Dale will rotate.
Days: M, T, W, F (off on Thursdays)
Time: 3:15-5:00 pm
 
We realize that it maybe a challenge for some of you to get your swimmers from their school to practice.  While we cannot guarantee any rides, Becky Turnbull is willing to try to help facilitate getting people together who can car pool.  If you are in need of a ride, or if you'll have extra room in your car and are willing to give rides please let us know (and include what school you are coming from and what days you need rides or are available to give rides) and Becky will attempt to match people up.
 
Eligibility:
  • * Your pre/post season fees must be paid in full.
  • * For YMCA Zones you must have competed in 3 closed YMCA meets during the current season and have a Zone time cut. 
  • * For YMCA Nationals you need to have 3 closed YMCA meets, plus  compete at Zones, and have a National time cut.
  • * For USA meets you must be a registered USA swimmer and have the appropriate time cuts. 

Please note: Anyone wishing to attend age group senior practices at Akron instead is welcome to do so.



Zone Jackets
Individual Zone qualifies should drop their jackets off at Youngs for embroidery.  New individual qualifiers should go to Youngs to get sized (remember you should get it big to allow for growing room.)

Relay only swimmers should not do either of these things yet since relays have not yet been officially set.



CSU Waiver
All swimmers competing at the League Championship meet will need to fill out this waiver form and return it to coach Dale as soon as possible.




League Qualifiers
From Coach Dale:
"Swimmers/Parents: Please check the CFYN league qualifying lists and check the League Psych sheet to see we haven't missed anyone.  Also look at the relays as a few of the relay positions have changed. If you are on the list and can not attend please let Coach Dale asap."




YMCA Nationals Hotel
A block of rooms has been reserved for YMCA Nationals at the Drury Inn.  You can make reservations with this block until March 2, 2015.  Click here for more info and to book your rooms.
