The 2012 CIF Southern Section swimming and diving championship will be held at the Riverside Aquatic Complex. The new facility is located on the campus of Riverside Community College.
In the past, the meet has been held at the Belmont Olympic Plaza in Long Beach.
Division II (all Pac 7 schools) prelims are slated to begin at 9 am on Friday, May 11. Finals are scheduled to begin at 10 am the following day: Saturday, May 12.
There will also be a new format for the meet. Previously, only 32 swimmers were allowed into each event. This year 36 swimmers will be accepted in each event.
Finals will consist of two heats of ten competitors. Medals will be awarded to the top finishers, but points will be given to the top twenty.
The Riverside Aquatic Center is a 65-meter pool and has a moveable bulkhead. For more information about the facility, click here.
