College Club Swimming and Georgia Tech have made the decision to transition to a virtual meet for the 2021 CCS National Championships. This decision did not come lightly, but, given the limitations due to COVID-19, we were not going to be able to put together an event that satisfies both the host and attendee's needs.
Nevertheless, the CCS Advisory Board has been working to create opportunities for as many swimmers as possible to participate in this event. In this email, you will find guidelines for four methods of participating in the 2021 CCS Virtual National Championships:
Hosting a satellite event: a satellite event is classified as an event in which two or more clubs participate. Clubs who wanting to host are required to submit a letter to CCS that their facility has given them permission to host.
Attending a satellite event: registered CCS teams and members may attend satellite locations to compete in in-person competitions. However, they must have a letter from their recreational sports department allowing them to travel.
Hosting an intrasquad meet: an intrasquad meet is classified as an event where only the host team is present.
Swimming on your own: swimmers may choose to compete in their events at their own locations during the dates of competition and record their results.
Even though Nationals will be virtual, CCS is still interested in how your club is going to operate during the spring semester. Please take our 2020-21 College Club Swimming Policies Survey - Spring Semester to let us know what's going on with your club!
