Commonwealth Games coming in June

The annual Commonwealth Games youth swim meet is on the schedule for June 24-26 at the War Memorial Pool in Waynesboro.

The meet, sanctioned by U.S. Swimming and Virginia Swimming, is open to all registered USA and Virginia swimmers. Entries are being accepted through June 8. Entries must be submitted in long-course meter times. All entry times must have been achieved in USS-sanctioned and -approved competition.

The 2011 United States Swimming Code and Rules apply. Virginia Safety and Warm-up Procedures will be in effect. In accordance with Virginia Swimming Policy, only those coaches who display current, valid, USS credentials will be allowed to act in a coaching capacity in this meet.

The meet director reserves the right to limit entries in any event, if necessary, to prevent too lengthy a session, and to combine events in which there are insufficient entries.
