Columbus Set to Host CSG Swimming

The Columbus Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Columbus Area Sports and Activities Council (CASAC) in conjunction with the Cornhusker State Games (CSG) are excited to announce the relocation of the 2021 CSG Swimming Event to Columbus!  This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase our community and welcome anywhere from 200-900 participants over the course of two days!

The Cornhusker State Games is a statewide amateur sports festival for all Nebraskans.  The purpose of the games is to provide top-quality ameteur competition in a wide variety of activities.  The 2021 Games are scheduled for July 16-25 at more than 70 sites in Lincoln, Omaha and surrounding Areas with an average of 11,000 participants statewide.  The Swimming portion of CSG will be hosted at the Columbus Aquatic Center on July 17 and 18, 2021 with a swimming village/crash area located at Ag Park in the Club Room.  The games are open to a variety of age groups and skill levels with youth being defined as 18 and under with five age groups and adults (Masters) 19 and older.

The CASAC and CVB are working with local swim coaches, the City of Columbus Parks and Recreation Department and a number of sponsors to make this event memorable.  The goal is to bring the games here and make them want to come back year after year!  Columbus and Platte County have a lot to be proud of when it comes to our athletic facilities and the hospitality of our residents.

Registration will become available in the near future.  Stay informed on everything Cornhusker State Games at: www.cornhuskerstategames.com.

If you or your organization are interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact Katy McNeil at kmcneil@plattene.us to learn more about the sponsorship benefits and tiers.  All sponsors will be invited to host a booth at the swimmers village.
