2021 Meet Info:

It is with deep regret that we have decided to cancel the 2021 Husky Invite.  We have spent the last several weeks working through feedback, reviewing health orders put in place by King County, and corresponding with facility administration to find a way to put together a great Husky meet.  Unfortunately, the restrictions put in place by the county no longer make it feasible to host a meet.  Our proposal for 300 swimmers per session had traction, but the allowed count has been reduced to 150 and all participants would be required to provide proof of vaccination.  The size restriction is a significant hurdle for a championship-style meet.  And we are neither equipped to verify, nor comfortable mandating, vaccines for athletes.  Further, restaurants in King County also require vax cards and it would be difficult for attendees to find adequate dining for their teams.
 
We wish we could have arrived at a decision earlier as I know you all need to make alternate plans, but we were working through a number of scenarios to make the meet workable.  We will do everything we can to host this meet in 2022 and will keep everyone informed through emails and our website (huskyinvite.com).  We wish you and your teams all the best and hope you’ll keep the Husky Invite in mind next year.
