ILMSA 2021 Competition Update - posted 1/5/2021

As we enter a new and promising year, ILMSA remains enthusiastic about the prospect of returning to competition. The arrival of the vaccines against the coronavirus gives us great hope that we’ll be able to safely return to a group setting for pool meets.


At this point it is unclear when state and local guidelines will permit this return and planning the ILMSA State Championship Short Course Yards (SCY) Meet will not be possible this spring.


We will continue to monitor the situation and follow USMS guidance on sanctioning swimming competition events. As new guidelines develop, the ILMSA board of directors will assess its options for phased re-openings with health and safety as our priority.


In the meantime, we encourage you to take advantage of virtual fitness activities and the workout library available to all USMS members.
