YMCA cancels national swim meet

The YMCA has canceled its national swim meet for the first time since Harry Truman was president. The decision comes just weeks before the event was scheduled. According to Door County YMCA Aquatics Director Mike McHugh, this hasn’t happened since 1947. McHugh is on the coaches committee, which oversees the meet, but he says the group was not part of the decision, that it came directly from the parent organization. McHugh says he is saddened for the kids.


The Wisconsin YMCA will still have sectional and state meets. There is also a long-course national swim meet, using an Olympic size 50-meter pool, which happens in the summer months.
