The NFHS has published guidelines on running virtual meets. You can find them here: https://www.nfhs.org/media/4119419/nfhs-guidelines-for-virtual-swim-meets.pdf

As an organization, NISCA understands the potential need for virtual swimming and diving meets during this time of pandemic. It is unlikely that swimming, diving and water polo teams will be able to fully compete in the manner to which we are accustomed during the 2020-2021 school year.  

NISCA will accept results from a virtual swim meet for All America Swimming and Diving applications or NISCA National Records, provided the following conditions are met.  Read More ...

NISCA is sad to announce  the passing of Chandler AZ Coach Kerry Croswhite. Croswhite was a coach at Chandler HS for 17 years. The Chandler High School boys placed 11th at the 2019 Arizona Division I (big school) High School State Championship meet, while the Chandler girls tied for 9th. In 2017, the Chandler girls were the state runners-up. The high school is the alma mater of a number of college swimmers, including 2019-2020 USC co-captain Mark Jurek, who still holds 5 individual records at the school. He has also been cited at least twice for saving swimmers’ life in pool emergencies.

As you know, NISCA has decided to cancel the 2020 Annual Conference in Indianapolis for the health and safety of our members. The executive board has met and held discussions about topics related to the cancellation of the Conference and also the closing of many schools across the US. Here is what you need to know and the Conference and All America Applications.  

After discussion with the NISCA Executive board, we do not wish to risk the health of any of our members.  Therefore, the 2020 NISCA Annual Conference will be cancelled. 

The executive board will decide how to best move forward. We will have more information in coming days. Thank you for your patience during this very fluid and difficult situation. 


As of 1:30pm EST on Thursday March 12th, no decisions have been made about the NISCA Conference scheduled for March 25-28 in Indianapolis. The executive board is gathering information and will be meeting soon to discuss our options. We hope to have more information no later than Monday, most likely earlier. We will keep you informed as we get new information. As you know, the situation is quite fluid at the moment. We thank you for your patience. 

I have 14 Colorado relay judging platforms available for purchase.  All new in-box (other than 1 which was put on a block once but never used).  Willing to let them go at best offer.  You must pay shipping.  32x24 inches.
