REVISED 2014-2015 SNC Designated Meets

In case you missed it, this announcement came in the latter part of August from SNC's Director of Domestic Operations, Ken Radford.

Swimming Canada is pleased to announce the dates and locations for the 2015 national meets.  After a comprehensive review of competitive needs and assessing swimmer development factors, Swimming Canada has made several changes to our national competitions; these changes are summarized as follows: 

  • As previously announced, the Speedo Eastern and Western Canadian Championships have been transitioned from short course meter regional championship meets, to long course meter regional preparation meets.  These meets will be referred to as “Open” competitions.
  • The Canada Cups have now been entirely removed from Swimming Canada’s scope of operations.  The November Canada Cup has already been cancelled; the Canada Cup status had been removed from the Quebec Cup and now the Canada Cup status will be removed from the Mel Zajac Jr International. Both the Quebec Cup and Zajac meets will continue to be driven by their local organizing committees with Swimming Canada no longer having any jurisdiction over these competitions.
  • The dates for the Canadian Age Group Championships (CAGC) and Canadian Swimming Championships (CSC) (Summer Nationals) have been pushed further into the summer to better align the summer training and long course preparation period with international development needs, and to mirror the preparation periodization the National Team follows.  The meets will also switch calendar positions with the CAGC now preceding the CSC’s.
