POSTPONED TO 2021 - Blue & Gold Meet (see notes)
Gahanna Swimming Pool
Start: 5:00 PM
End: 7:00 PM

This intrasquad practice meet is a tune-up to get both our athletes and volunteers ready for the league season. An alternative event is under discussion, but we are asking you to hold this date for the time being. If the Blue & Gold Meet occurs as scheduled, diving would at 5pm, and swimming would start when diving concludes. Swimmers will only participate in backstroke and freestyle races.  Parents and family members will be asked to help with the various volunteer jobs needed to run a swim meet, though this abbreviated practice meet is just instructional (i.e., won't count toward volunteer credits).
