Common Ground Masters “Keep it Short” Swim Meet (SCY) will be held on Saturday, February 7th at the Common Ground Community Center in Elkhorn (West Omaha). Warm-ups will start at approximately 4:00 p.m. and the meet at 5:00 p.m. For meet info/entry form, CLICK HERE. (This is a Sanctioned event. All participants must be registered members of U.S. Masters Swimming for 2015.)
- NOTE: Be aware that the Elkhorn High School Varsity Swimming Invitational that precedes the Masters meet may run long. The Masters swim meet is scheduled to begin immediately after the high school meet ends, and should begin at approximately 4:00 p.m., unless the high school meet is running behind schedule. We anticipate warm-ups will start between 4:00 and 4:30 pm, but they could start later. Your patience is greatly appreciated!
