I attached a list of all the athletes who are USA registered with us at the moment., If your athlete is not on the list, they are not USA registered. If your athlete is not USA registered your athlete can NOT attend practice. To register your athlete in USA Swimming please go to our Website, click Registration, click USA Registration Link in blue, and follow the directions from there. If you athlete is in Yellow you need to register for 2024 year by November 1st. If your athlete is in green you are good until Decmeber of 2024.
High School Athletes and Qualifying Meets
If your athlete is attending and meets with our team that require a qualifying time and you want to use their High School times you will need a proof of times report from your High School coach or the results of the meet. You can only use meet results or proof of times for State-level meets or lower. Any Sectional, Zone or National Meets have to be MN High School State Meet, ND EDC or ND State Meet. Any other meet does not qualify them for Sectionals, Zones or National Meets. All proof of times and meet results need to be sent to Coach Jess as many meets will ask for proof of times.
