The Wenatchee City Pool, fresh off a $2 million renovation project will be the venue for the 2024 Apple Capital Swim Meet starting May 31st.

The meet continues a tradition dating back over 40 years in Wenatchee.

Velocity Swimming team Head Coach Westley Mejias is expecting over 900 swimmers for the 3-day competition from Canada, Oregon, and Washington State.

This meet is an opportunity for up-and-coming USA Swimming athletes to measure their progress after training in 25 yard pools all season, known as short courses.  The Apple Capital meet is one of the largest outdoor meets in the state of Washington and  kicks off what is called the long course season in a 50 meter pool, the same size Olympic caliber swimmers train and compete in.

The event also provides a significant financial impact on the Wenatchee Valley.  According to City of Wenatchee officials, swim meets generate $1 million in annual economic benefit to the community from hotel stays, local dining and patronizing other businesses.
