Bronze Championships - Central
As many of you know, the Bronze Central meet was not bid on for 2017. This has been on the calendar since May 2016.

Newburgh and Sachem have graciously offered to allow the Central teams to enter their Bronze North and Bronze South meets. This is a 1 year solution, so please start thinking about 2018.

The Central teams have been divided the following way: Westchester and Bronx based Central teams would go to North meet in Newburgh; Staten Island, Brooklyn, & Queens based Central teams would go to South meet on Long Island; AGUA & 92nd street to North meet in Newburgh and the other Manhattan teams to South meet on Long Island.

There will be no exceptions to the meet to which you have been assigned.

Congratulations to our new Junior Athlete Rep Jocelyn Fisher from Sachem Swim Club

Jocelyn will join the Metro board in May

Thanks to the candidates Francesca, Philip and Jonathan - Job well done!
