Poll of the Week, May 4, 2012: Should the NCAA Remove the Cap Limiting the Number of Swimmers and Divers at the Championships?
-- May 4, 2012
PHOENIX, Arizona, May 4. FOR 20 years, the NCAA has instituted a cap on the number of men and women who can attend the annual spring national championships. That cap has stayed pretty close to 322 females and 270 males, though the actual number of swimmers who participate each year is often well below that.
Even though the cap is rarely reached, should there be a limit to the number of swimmers who are allowed to compete at the NCAA championships? We want to hear from you on this, so go to swimmingworldmagazine.com/poll
