Information from National or Members Regarding Operations: There was an update from those who knew about the status of different members and their return to swim. York YMCA has been holding meets and has different types of meets scheduled into the fall. National YMCA is putting forth parameters to hold virtual meets. Officials training is being worked out with some types of sessions being done virtually and others still not yet approved to do so.
PDSL Response: PDSL will run ALL Clinic sessions as Virtual training. A motion was made to Waive team fees for the 2020-2021 Season, following a vote that motion passed. Decisions on championship fees will be deferred until further information on the ability to run those meets is made.
Fall Meeting Notice: Board reviewed the Meeting notice and worked on some changes. A motion was made and approved to conduct a 4 virtual Invitational Meet schedule with one a month for October, November, December and January.
These virtual meets can be run over a span of 10 days, and then will be complied for publication of results by the league. Board wanted to focus on encouraging the sport of swimming and providing a means to facilitate some safe competition.
Board recognizes that different restrictions apply to the different teams and will review circumstances in order to sponsor as many opportunities as possible for each team. Upon some further clarification the motion was unanimously approved.
This discussion prompted a need to rework the League Fall meeting Notice. The notice will be revised and sent as soon as possible. Board members to collaborate and prepare the slides and finalize the agenda for the League meeting over the next few days.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:31 pm.
Respectfully submitted, Bruce Cooper
