U.S. Masters Swimming COVID-19 Update

Ozark LMSC is following USMS recommendation to cancel sanctioned events (through at least April 30) and is cancelling the 2020 Ozark LMSC Short Course Yards Championship Meet scheduled for March 21-22 at Marquette Pool in Chesterfield, MO.  Thank you for your patience while Club Assistant processes refunds.

Memo from USMS National Office:

U.S. Masters Swimming has cancelled the 2020 USMS Spring National Championship and suspended all of its education courses through at least April 30.

USMS is also strongly recommending that all LMSCs and clubs suspend or cancel sanctioned events through at least April 30. USMS will continue to monitor COVID-19 developments and will make an announcement regarding whether future competitions and courses will be impacted. In addition, USMS’s Adult Learn-to-Swim Month campaign won’t be promoted in April this year. Spring Nationals registrants will receive a refund.

USMS encourages all of its members to adhere to prevention best practices and follow the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and their local health officials for updates regarding COVID-19, and strongly discourages swimmers who are sick from attending workouts.
