Coming out of the meeting of SwimBC's Awards Committee - which includes SwimBC staff along with BCSCA, SwimBC Board, and BC Swim Officials representation - on Monday, July 14, SwimBC will re-schedule 2015 Long Course AA Championships one week later, to run on June 26-28.
This is being done primarily to move outside of the window encompassed by high school final exams in an effort to make this meet viable for that level of swimmer.
In moving to this weekend, it puts the meet the weekend immediately prior to AAA Championships, and while the entry deadline for AAA Championships will remain 10 days prior to the start of that meet, there will be a provision to allow new qualifiers to enter AAA Championships.
With this date change, SwimBC is opening up the bidding once again for 2015 Long Course AA Championships. Meet managers will be sent a notice to this effect, with the submission deadline for those interested in hosting this meet being Tuesday, July 22, 2014.
The hosts of the other SwimBC Championship and Senior meets will be announced in the next few days, pending confirmation and acceptance by the selected hosting clubs.
