New England Short Course Meters Championships- December 8-10, 2017-Registration Ends November 24

CONN MASTERS NEED YOU TO SWIM FOR US AT THE NEW ENGLAND SHORT COURSE METERS  CHAMPIONSHIPS, which will be held again in Worcester, Mass on December 8-10, 2017.  This is the first-class team event for CONN Masters where every point an individual swimmer earns adds to the team total, as well as relay points.  There will be two relay events on Saturday (200 Free and 400 Medley) and two on Sunday (200 Medley and 400 Free).  We need as many relay teams as we can field.  Come with your own team or come alone and we will assign you to a relay.

Last year Connecticut had a fantastic showing coming in second place in the medium team category, losing to Rhode Island by only 29 points, and finished fifth overall among all teams with a total of 2,276 points.

2017 is our year to move up in the standings.  Every CONN swimmer counts, and all swimmers who attend are urged to join our relays, which are very important to team scores.  Also, last year many of the relays earned national top ten honors.

Connecticut had 29 swimmers last year. Through November 17, 14 CONN swimmers are signed up, and we expect many more will, but don’t wait.  Registration ends November 24th.  The race organizers have challenged us to bring at least 35, moving us into the large team category and making us eligible for a raffle to win a team pizza party on Saturday night.  We’d like to see even more entrants, and win not just the pizza party, but a top three overall standing.

It is a fantastic facility, a very well run meet, and easy to get to.  Come on everybody!
