Swim Circuit Update re Covid-19
Northwest Swim Circuit – Coronavirus update
March 28th, 2020
Due to the extraordinary events these past few weeks, the NWSC Board has delayed the official season start date to May 11, 2020.
May 11 will be the official first day of practice for all teams in the league, and because this is very close to our schedule first meet dates, the Circuit board has also voted to eliminate all dual and tri meets scheduled on May 16th and May 23rd. The remaining 2020 schedule will stand as originally planned for now.
Please know that this was a difficult decision for all circuit representatives, but given the current situation with shelter in place orders and bans on large group gatherings, this was a necessary decision.
The circuit board is scheduled to meet on April 15 to reassess the situation and take any further action as needed at that time.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has prompted changes within the world of sports, including swimming at all levels. As COVID-19 actions continue to develop, the NWSC will monitor and assess any actions necessary to ensure the health and safety of all NWSC athletes, families and guests. Because the NWSC does not have any competitions or practices planned for the next 30 days, we will continue to operate as normal and monitor the situation as we draw closer to the start of our own season. It should be noted that USA Swimming has made the decision to suspend all events or any occasion that requires individuals to travel and gather for 30 days. USA Swimming has also advised all Local Swimming Committees (LSC) and clubs to suspend all USA Swimming sanctioned competitions across the country for 30 days as well. The NWSC will continue to observe and assess any necessary actions to align with USA Swimming or any other local, state or national direction in dealing with this situation.
The NWSC encourages everyone to seek further information using the CDC and the WHO websites:
- CDC Summary - https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019 ncov/summary.html#situation-in-us
- WHO Advice for the Public - https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public
We additionally ask all NWSC teams to continue to monitor their own situations and adhere to any locally mandated actions due to COVID-19.
Sincerely, David Strauss
President – NWSC Board
