Virtual Breadbasket Zone SCY Championship Results

Technology is catching up with us and we have been able to combine the SCY championship meet results from each LMSC in our Zone.  Results are here - the Relaykers were the top scorer from Minnesota, finishing 2nd in the combined scoring.

Hall of Fame Class of 2022 nominations open through August 1

Do you know someone who has a strong swimming record of top performance or a long-term coach who has made a difference.  Then please nominate them for the MN Masters Hall of Fame by sending an email to the cochairs, Marc Anderson and Tom Hodgson.  You can find all the details of the process here.

Masters/USA Swimming LCM Meet May 27-28

Your first chance to compete long course this year will be a joint USA Swimming/USMS meet at the Highland Aquatic Center May 27 & 28.  Here's a link for the general event information and one for the entry form.  You'll enter on line and pay by mail or at the meet.

Help us update our website

It has been a few years since we looked at our website design and the collective wisdom is that we can do better.  We are looking for volunteers for two roles:

  1. People to give us feedback on our work - thoughts on the current website, other LMSC websites that they think are good, and feedback on a redesigned website.
  2. People who can help with the website redesign
