Here is the meet information for the Fred Lamback Disability Meet meet to be held in October in Augusta, Georgia. This meet will also have a camp on the 18th and 19th – more info on that will be posted as it’s finalized. Classification will be offered as always, on a first come, first served basis. The U.S. Paralympic Officials Training course is also being offered. This is a developmental meet so we’re hoping for a lot of athletes that are fairly new to our sport.
Also, be sure and watch the Paralympic Games on www.paralympic.org beginning on August 29th. The United States has a great team going as well as 4 officials!
Here are the updated NCS long course records. You can also find them, along with short course records, current Top 10 times, and various time standards beneath the SWIMMERS tab under Top 10, Records, and Standards.
