COMSA invites you to the 2021 COMSA Masters Virtual Short Course Regional Swimming Meet, March 14-28, 2021!

Description: Colorado and Wyoming Virtual SCY regional swimming meet hosted by COMSA. As a virtual meet, swimmers register on-line via Club Assistant and submit their times via Swim Phone.  Registration opens January 18, 2021. Events must be swum between March 14 and 28, 2021 at your home pool.  Your home pool is where you practice regularly these days. If your home pool is meters, a link to a conversion calculator from SCM or LCM to SCY is available at the top of the registration page where you enter events and seed times. That same link will be available when you submit your results. Because there are no officials, multiple timers or pool measurements; local, regional, national or international records can be neither challenged nor top 10 swims be considered. Trophies for the top three teams, regardless of where in the country you swim, will be based on the number of registrants as indicated by the team rosters tabulated by Club Assistant. In lieu of charging a per event fee, COMSA is offering you the opportunity to help out four different aquatic entities in our region. This is a USMS calendar event only.
