The 2017 GRIN State Meet is Set!

The GRIN Board is thrilled to announce that the 2017 GRIN State Championship Meet will be held from April 8-9 at the Jon Jepsen Aquatic Center in Munster, Indiana.

Meet Hosts
The 2017 State Meet will be hosted by the Munster Masters Association. This diverse Masters program has approximately 60 registered members ranging in age from 21 years old to over 70.  Head Coach Matt Lee believes that you are never too old to be competitive and they are looking forward to bringing the GRIN State Meet competition to their pool. The Munster Masters Association also has a great volunteer base, enjoys hosting several Masters meets each year, and hosted the 2016 Illinois State Meet, which had over 600 swimmers. They certainly know how to run a championship meet and we are thrilled they will be our meet host for 2017!

Meet Facility
The Jon Jepsen Aquatic Center is located at Munster High School, 8808 Columbia Avenue, Munster, IN 46321.  The Aquatic Center features a beautiful 10-lane, 50-meter competition pool with moveable bulkheads to allow for separate competition and warm-up / warm-down pools. The facility also includes spacious locker rooms, offices, a large classroom, and a large open area that will feature vendors and concessions – all designed to handle the needs of a large event.

Additional details, including the order of events, registration information, and hotels, will be coming shortly. Please stay tuned, but be sure to get this great annual competition on your calendars now. We hope to see you all in Munster!
