Go way beyond the typical, short course, age-group meet with ISCA

East Coast Open Water Festival

September 24th-25th, 2022

Jump in, as the water is calling!

ISCA’s Open Water Festival slated for September 24 and 25, 2022, is much more than a typical age-group swim meet. Of course the two-day event features the special experiences that make ISCA’s events t-shirt worthy: excellent venue, inspired competition, new friendships and high class awards. Plus, coaches, parents, scientists, boosters and others of all ages can also join in with the open-water swims and the new 5K paddleboard race. Bring your X-Country friends too as the Splash and Dash event has a half-mile swim followed by a half-mile run. 

  • No worries about the SWIMS database delays — as this event is open to those who might not be a registered USA Swimmer.

Teams can sign up with the coach in an easy, on-line form and simply show up with the team check to cover group registration charges at the event. Team support is coming from PEAQ, Potomac Marlins, WAVE Swimming and Lake Forest which is located north of Chicago. 

The International Swim Coaches Association’s East Coast Open Water Festival is a perfect way to begin the fall season, and we don’t want you and your friends to miss out.
