The 2021 Carolina Crown Swim Challenge will be held at the CSD Community YMCA in Clover, South Carolina on Saturday, April 24. The meet will be hosted by South Carolina Swimming and will feature top age 15-18 swimmers from North Carolina and South Carolina. A list of automatic qualifiers and alternate qualifiers will be posted shortly after the end of the qualifying period, which is March 15. Athletes interested in competing will be asked to complete an online application form, posted on both the NC Swimming and SC Swimming websites. Selections will then be finalize and posted around April 5th.
Dear Coaches, Swimmers, and Parents,
At this time we are planning on attending Open Water Zones in Chattanooga, TN on 6/4/2021 – 6/6/2021. I have heard from the host team, and they are in the preliminary planning. I have committed NC Swimming to going.
This year, we will be doing an application process, instead of using any meets. The link for the application is below.
Applications will close on Monday March 1st, 8:00AM.
We are asking for the 1650, 1000, and 500 times. We realize with the limited amount of swims everyone is allowed this year, that not everyone will have the opportunity to swim those events. Please just fill in the times that you have. The Open Water Selection Committee will take a look at the times, along with the Open Water experience and choose the team of 32. There will be four(4) 11-12 girls, four(4) 11-12 boys, four(4) 13-14 girls, four(4) 13-14 boys, four(4) 15-16 girls, four(4) 15-16 boys, four(4) open girls, and four(4) open boys.
The selection committee consists of John Payne, Jonathan Bescher, JP Merchant. Amy Faulk, and David McDevitt.
It will not be a team travel trip. The parents/swimmers will be responsible getting to Chattanooga, and to the lake. They will be responsible for making and paying for hotel arrangements, along with their own food. NC Swimming will be sending 3 coaches and 1 Official to the meet. The coaches will be Head Coach Brett Ciancanelli, Assistant Coach/Manager Jonathan Bescher, Assistant Coach Blake Addison, and Official Leigh Ciancanelli. All costs associated with the trip will be the responsibility of the Parent/Guardians of the swimmer.
There will be a timeline so the swimmers know when to show up. We will be working on getting a block of hotel rooms that is near the lake. This will alow the swimmers to decide on how they want to travel to the meet. If some swimmers wanted to room together, that would not be on NC Swimming, that would be purely up to the families involved.
There will be a slight cost for the meet to cover the registration fee for the meet.
We are now sponsored by Speedo.

MEET BID PROCEDURE: Please use the form below to submit your 2021-2022 Short Course meet bids by 4/17/21.
Here is the bid packet for submitting meet bids for the 2021-2022 short course season. It includes both the Meet Bid Framework and the Meet Bid Form.
The meet bid framework provides dates of notable meets, including sectional and national events, and indicates closed weekends during the 2021-2022 short course season.
The meet bid form is the method for submitting your meet bids to the meet scheduling committee. Simply complete and submit a form for each of your club’s meet bids. Please note the closed weekends when submitting bids.
Completing the Meet Bid Form
The meet bid form allows the Meet Scheduling committee to gather and provide clubs with complete and consistent meet information. The form is divided into three sections:
- Basic Meet Information (dates, host club, meet name, location, etc.)
- Meet Type (meet type, course type, meet category, age group)
- Meet Fees (individual fees, relay fees, facility fees, travel fund, parking, other)
Click the link to the Meet Bid Form to get started. After completing all required fields (identified by an asterisk) in a section, click NEXT. After completing the entire form, click SUBMIT. You will be asked if you want to submit another response. If you do, click “submit another response” and repeat the process for your next meet.
Meet bids submitted will automatically populate the 2021-2022 Short Course Bid Schedule posted on the NCS website. Here, you can view what you’ve submitted. (The spreadsheet does not automatically sort by date, so the most recently submitted bids will appear at the bottom but will be sorted periodically as bids come in.)

From the ocean to the mountains, we swim under the beautiful starry blue skies of the North Carolina Swimming LSC. That sums up the inspiration that led to the design of NCS’s new logo launched today at the LSC’s Senior Championships meet. The new logo reflects the LSC’s geographic diversity with the pool uniting our 10,000 swimmers, coaches, officials, and volunteers across the state. The star is a link to the North Carolina flag as well as to USA Swimming. Look for the new NCS logo wherever you swim.
Jonathan Watson and Jay Dodson have created a new website for our Section with links to all the LSCs in the Section and all four zones! The website will host the Section Membership application, the Sectional (Senior and Age Group) meet info and qualifying standards, and sectional meeting minutes. In short, all things Sectional!
A permanent link to the new website was added as a subtab to the Southern Zone tab on the NCS homepage. Below is the link:
