The Metropolitan Board of Directors has unanimously voted to void the recent vote held at Senior Mets for the new Junior Athlete Rep.
The primary reason for this is proper voting procedures were not followed.
As it is the responsibility of the current Athlete Reps to ensure that a fair voting process is followed, we apologize for this year's failed process.
We are working with the Board to ensure the Metro athletes will have a fair opportunity to vote in a manner that that is beyond reproach.
We will notify you of the new dates/procedures as soon as they are finalized.
We thank you for your support and we again apologize to the athletes, especially this year's candidates.

Coaches must be (1) registered with USA Swimming, be current with (2) CPR, (3) Safety Training, (4) Background Check, (5) Athletes Protection Training, and (6) Foundation of Coaching Requirements.
Please plan ahead if you have a certification expiring.
It is up to coaches to check and renew certifications when due. Please use USA-Swimming's Deck Pass or Club Portal to check if any certifications have expired.
For USA Swimming insurance reasons, if any certification has expired, a coach is not allowed on pool deck during practice or at meets until expired certifications have been renewed and submitted to Metro's registrar.
If you do not see your name and you think all of your certifications are up-to-date and you have checked Deck Pass and/or your Club Portal, please email Mary at the office at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your name, team and what the issue is.

The day was a great success for all coaches and swimmers. Metropolitan Swimming continues to support diversity in the sport of swimming.
Not only do we want to enhance our area's youth, but show the rest of the country Metro swimming is a committed leader to promote diversity within our sport.
