All America Swimming Announcements
NISCA's Stance on Virtual Meets August 4, 2020
As an organization, NISCA understands the 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.
