2013 NCS Age Group Championship Meet Results
North Carolina Swimming sadly acknowledges the passing of Dave Hoggard, a
long-time official and volunteer from the Raleigh area. Our thoughts are with
the Hoggard family.
Here is meet and hotel information for the 2013 Arena Grand Prix at Charlotte presented by UltraSwim which will be held at the Mecklenburg County Aquatic Center on May 9-12, 2013.
USA Swimming will handle all entry procedures for the UltraSwim and any questions should be directed to Josh Fowler, firstname.lastname@example.org concerning that meet. Swimmers who are members of USA Swimming with one or more qualifying standards in individual or relay events may enter the meet through USA Swimming’s OME system (usaswimming.org/ome) on a first-come basis beginning Monday, February 18, 2013, at 12:00 Noon Eastern Time, and may enter any number of events in which they have a qualifying standard. Time standards for this competition will be the current Summer Speedo Junior National standards.
The entry period for the Midday Meet, which will be named the SwimMAC Open, will begin on March 26th. Meet information and a TM entry file will be available prior to March 26.
Meet files from the North Carolina High School Athletic Association regional and championship meets were sent by email to all clubs. The .hy3 files can be put into TM and the SDIF files into Team Unify.
Coaches should be aware that the swimmers show up as NC-UN so club affiliations will need to be added.
If you need the files and did not receive the email, contact Bill Martin at billmartin@ncswim to have them sent.
Visit the NCHSAA website for high school meet results.
