Dear Tri-County Conference swim families,
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we do many things and has caused people, groups, and communities to make some very hard decisions. We are hopeful that things will eventually get back to normal sooner rather than later.
With that said, it is with great sadness we must inform you that the 2020 Tri-County conference swim season has been canceled. The Tri-County Conference presidents met and came to a unanimous decision to cancel the season.
We hope you understand that this decision was not taken lightly, and as a conference we waited until we had enough information to make a final decision. This decision was based on factors including the health and safety of the swimmers and families as well as economic and financial concerns for our conference teams, swim families and swim sponsors during these uncertain times. Also, there are many unknowns regarding when our conference community pools would be able to safely open and what type of restrictions might be put in place when they do open. Some conference community pools have already made the decision to close their outdoor pools for the summer due to COVID-19.
There was hope that there would be a swim season this year, and we could all gather for some fun on Saturday mornings and at our end of season conference meet. Our thoughts go out to our head coaches, the many assistant and age group coaches, all swimmers, our volunteers, sponsors and our swim families. Everyone was excited to get the season started and we wanted to be able to gather with other swimmers and swim families this summer to make lasting memories and have some friendly competition.
At this point, we will regroup and come back in 2021 with renewed energy. We want you to know that all 2020 senior swimmers are invited back to swim during the 2021 season. We hope this chance to be recognized as a part of their community swim team one last time in 2021 puts a smile on their faces before going out into the world and doing great things.
We hope you all enjoy your summer and are able to continue to spend time with family, as we hope to get back to a normal way of doing things soon
Stay healthy, stay safe, stay happy, and stay strong.
Tri-County Conference Presidents
