I am starting to receive inquiries about pools in Omaha that will be open for workouts for Masters swimmers during the Olympic Trials. I have also received some information from a few pools that will be open. I am posting the information here but am going to make this a closed thread so that the information will be easy to find. I will keep adding to it as I receive more information.

If you know of more facilities, please send me a PM.

DIRECTIONS: How to get to the pool? The best and quickest way is in a car. From the Century Link Center area, it is an approximate 10 minute drive. The best bet is to google directions from wherever you are staying. Take note, there is signage as you exit the Freeway that directs you to The Kroc Center so keep you eyes open. You can also get there via public transportation, one bus only, from close to the Kroc Center. It is a 45 minute bus ride and you will have a 15 minute walk at the end. Visit Metro Omaha for a bus schedule.

NOTES: These practice times are a gift to USMS members from the Nebraska LMSC. Please be sure to thank any Nebraska Masters swimmers that you may meet while in Omaha.
