*Due to the current pandemic climate the YMCA-USA has not provided guidance on a large-scale sectional swim meet. We are planning a Virtual Meet at home, which will then be submitted. If this changes, sections will be held in Austin, MN on February 6th or 7th. Likewise, The University of Minnesota has not adjusted their rental response and the Aquatic Center is currently unavailable to host the state swim meet. We will plan on virtual participation, unless we hear otherwise from Y-USA and State Alliance.
