The SI Swimming Program Committee recently held it’s semi-annual bid meeting for the 2014-2015 short course season, and one meet was not bid upon by any team. As a result, the proposed November 1-2 Halloween Invitational Meet has been sent out for rebid. Any SI Swimming Club interested in hosting the meet is encouraged to secure proof of water and submit a bid application for these meets. Bids are due to the SI Swimming office no later than 2:30pm on Tuesday, 19 August so that they may be considered by the Program Committee during its next meeting.  A ReBid Package with all the details is available.

The remainder of the 2014-2015 short course season has been awarded and the proposed winter meet schedule has been approved and published on our Meets page.
