STREAMLINES for Coaches
Dear : We want to hear your feedback regarding STREAMLINES for Coaches, so please fill out this quick survey to help us improve.

SAVE THE DATE:  Registration for the National Coaches Clinic opens in April. The clinic is Oct. 19-21 in College Park, Md., this year. More information is coming soon.

The inaugural Winter Fitness Challenge, part of the SmartyPants Vitamins USMS Fitness Series, is finally here! Between Feb. 15-28, have your swimmers do this 30-minute swim however they like. 
Important Note Regarding Meets and USMS Rules

Effective Jan. 1, 2017, USMS rules for calculating official times changed to follow FINA rules. Many meet hosts are unaware that Meet Manager defaults to the old rules. If the setting is incorrect, USMS rules are not being followed. 

Please make sure your meet hosts have this setting in the meet set up: Time Adjustment Method needs to be set to "FINA rules" instead of "USA Swimming rules prior to 1 May 2016". This MUST be done prior to the meet in order to work. Changing it after the meet has been run will mean manually correcting times where adjustments had to be made.
