  • Michigan LMSC: Swim Meet Update – October 20, 2020.

I hope you and your family have been staying safe during these unusual times.

Now that we’re halfway through the fall season, I wanted to send you an update on where things stand with local meets in the next few months and beyond.

Currently, there are no local meets scheduled for the 2020-2021 Short Course season in the Michigan LMSC. Although the fall season has been completely cancelled, the winter season is looking tentative at best.

Even though the USMS national office has authorized meet sanctions beginning November 1, 2020, the list of requirements and restrictions that each meet will need to abide by poses a huge challenge for most meet hosts.

Major constraints include:

  1. A limit on the number of swimmers that can participate. (Local regulations take precedent on the number of entries up to the maximum allowed by USMS, which is 50 swimmers.)
  2. No attendees from farther than a 100-mile radius from the event venue.
  3. No relays allowed.
  4. No hospitality from meet host (food, snacks, water).
  5. No locker rooms or showers.
  6. Swimmers must arrive and leave in their suits.
  7. No spectators or nonessential attendees.
  8. Plexiglass barriers to protect volunteers and officials.
  9. Swimmers cannot congregate on the side or at the end of the pool to cheer for friends.
  10. All officials need to be equipped with radios.
  11. Once races are completed, exit the facility without lingering to socialize or cheer teammates.
  12. Contact tracing plan to notify all attendees in the event of a participant testing positive for COVID-19 following the meet.

Another major hurdle is trying to find available pools. For those schools with open pools, most are not allowing outside groups to use their facilities.

With ten weeks to go until 2021, we should know more about how meet regulations have evolved around the first of the year.

Until then, the Michigan LMSC meet calendar currently has no confirmed events at this time.

As soon as we have any new information on the meet schedule, we will send an updated message.

Be well and stay safe,

Patrick Weiss
Vice-Chair, Michigan LMSC


  • Coronavirus and Swimming: What You Need to Know… What’s changed since March and how that might impact your swimming?

by Elaine K Howley, July 27, 2020

When the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus outbreak a pandemic in mid-March, swimming stopped for a lot of us. Pools around the country closed, and as of late July, only some have reopened, and many are operating in a much-reduced capacity. New protocols have been instituted to help keep swimmers safe, and each facility is approaching its reopening plans a little differently, based on local conditions and regulations.

Over the past five months, we’ve learned a lot about this new disease and how it’s transmitted. Although there’s still a lot that isn’t clear about the coronavirus and the potentially deadly disease it causes, COVID-19 (also called SARS-CoV-2), we have learned a great deal about what to expect from infections and how to slow transmission.

With regards to swimming, here’s a summary of current public health advisories and scientific understanding of what you need to know. Awareness of these key aspects of the virus and how it moves can help you keep safe as pools around the country resume operations.
