At a recent off-site meeting, the existing Policy and Procedures Manual of SI Swimming was reviewed and numerous changes were proposed.  The proposed changes are available for review.  The items in red are the proposal; the strikeouts are what would be taken out of the manual. Some items will need to be changed and updates to reflect what is changed with the Bylaws. These changes will be voted upon at an upcoming Board of Directors meeting.

At the most recent Board of Directors meeting, the Board was updated on the increasing size of the disparity between the North and South divisions of the LSC.  In the 4 years since the last time the divisional split was reviewed, SI Swimming has grown in size (by almost 25%, to almost 3300 swimmers), with more of the growth occurring in the North county.  This means with all things being equal, split meets tend to be larger in the North than the South.  The Team Sizes as of 1 March 2014 chart shows that there are currently over 600 more registered swimmers in the North than the South.  The Board will consider proposals to rebalance the LSC at its next meeting, one obvious suggestion is to move club(s) of least 200 swimmers from the North to the South division.
