Thank you all so much for filling out applications for the Zones positions. During this month's Montana Swimming conference call on Jan 9th it was brought up that the Zones Coaching positions may seem a bit intimidating to apply for when you don't have a firm understanding about what you are getting yourself into.Attached is a broad look at what each position entails as well as the salary for each position. I have also attached the application. Please send your application directly to Tony Popp. His email is:

The hard deadline for your application is- Jan 31, 2017.

PS- If you have already filled out an application there that is awesome! You do not need to do another.

 Important Information Regarding Age Group Zones

Montana Swimming is putting together a team for the Western Zones Age Group Championships to be held in Utah in August!

  • Our goal is to have a minimum of 4 swimmers in each age group/gender (minimum 24 total).
  • Anyone with at least 1 zones time qualifies and is automatically on the team as long as their coach signs the coach authorization form and all other paperwork is submitted. Hard cut qualifiers are guaranteed 6 event entries.  If a swimmer qualifies for AG Zones during the 2015/2016 short course season or qualified at last summer's 2015 zones, please email Toni confirming participation on the team by deadline TBA.  
  • After the deadline (TBA), using Montana Swimming times database, Montana Swimming will calculate top swimmers' top 4 events using Power Points, as well as consider coach input, to sort for prospective athletes to be a member of Team Montana, even if no ZONE time is achieved.  Calls will be made and/or an email sent to swimmers/families/coaches by a date to be announced.  Commitment to join Team Montana in Utah will be expected by a date to be announced.  
  • Payment and all forms for Zones team members are due by June 10, 2016
  •  Swimmers who qualify with a zones time after June 10th automatically make the team and can get the application, coach's authorization, other necessary forms, and payment submitted to the zones coordinator upon qualifying.  
  •  Montana Long Course State Championships, held in Bozeman the last weekend in July,  is the last chance to qualify with a hard cut.
