Local Swim Committees (LSC)

United State Swimming is divided into numerous Local Swim Committees (LSC). California is divided into five LSC's, and they include Central California Swimming (CCS), Pacific Swimming, Southern California Swimming, Sierra Nevada, and San Diego Imperial. Tule Nation Tritons is a member of CCS, and includes the geographical region with swimmers competing for teams in Merced to the North, Bakersfield in the south, Ridgecrest in the east, and Lemoore in the west. The table below reflect links to websites of LSC's where members of our team may compete:

LSC Explanation
Central California Use this site to enter into most swim meets that take place in CCS. This includes JO's, and other swim meets that take place within towns in CCS.
CCS (new) The Central California Swimming website is in transition beginning late in 2018. This link is for the initial set-up of the site. The meets tab appears to be updated.
Pacific Swimming Swim meets such as Far Westerns and Santa Clara International take place in this LSC. Swimmers cannot enter meets in this LSC using the CCS site. Use our Active site to enter team meets.
San Diego Imperial Occasionally, our team competes in the Age Group Championships in San Diego. Swimmers cannot use the CCS website to enter meets in San Diego Imperial. Use our Active site to enter team meets.
Sierra Nevada This is a smaller LSC (much like CCS), that exists just to the north of Merced.
