The Vermont Senior Games will be holding its annual swim meet at an outdoor pool for the first time in 2021. The competition will be held at Sand Hill Park in Essex on Sunday July 25, 2021.
In consideration of COVID guidelines, the VSG is making this change to provide for safety protocols for our athletes. Our previous partnership with the Masters meet at the Edge was excellent, but with the meet cancelled twice now due to the pandemic, staging our own event seemed to be the only way to provide swimmers with the chance to race this year.
The meet will begin at 10 am, and athletes will be provided with the choice of thirteen different events covering various strokes and distances. Swimmers can choose to enter a maximum of six events. The meet will conclude with a fun, open 200-yard freestyle relay (that does not count towards the six-event maximum).
Pre-registration for the VSG Swim Championships is required by Friday July 16, 2021.
Head meet official Tammy Denton is offering athletes the opportunity to participate in a Zoom meeting to review rules and judging standards prior to the event, on Monday July 19th at 6 pm. Upon registration, swimmers will be asked to indicate whether they will be planning to take part in that Zoom call.
