Where can you view the Master's qualifying times for both SC and LC Nationals? Thanks.

You can find the NQTs for the short course and long course nationals at http://www.usms.org/comp/nqt.php.

I'm confused about NQTs. Do you need to have the qualifying time? I was looking at some of the results and there was such a wide variation in times, making me wonder this. Does anyone know the situation on that? I'm new to the master's circuit.

This is from the USMS Nationals website:

National Qualifying Times
Competitors may enter a maximum of three (3) individual events without meeting the National Qualifying Times (NQTs) established for those events. Competitors may enter up to three additional events in which they have swum a time equal to or better than the NQT in the past two years. The NQTs for all events are listed here. Designate the events in which NQTs have been met with a "T" in the designated column. There are no NQTs for the 90 and over age groups.
