Steve Barden Meet


Asheville Masters will NOT be hosting our annual Steve Barden swimming meet this fall.

As host for 12 years running, the board voted to put it aside for a year and see if anyone had other ideas for reformatting this meet, developing a different version altogether, or what…?

If you have ideas, please consider taking this on to come up with something new and exciting that could be rolled out in 2019!

However, we WILL be supporting our South Carolina swimming friends and their efforts at providing swimming lessons for all youth by participating at their:
