View Full Version : 2014 USMS Open Water National Championships -- Calendar?

May 20th, 2013, 07:59 PM
I don't know if this is the right place to post this question or if it would be better posted in the open water forum. But my question is the following:

Where can I find a calendar for the 2014 open water championship swims?

Searching online reveals only this result:

I'm not sure where this information was pulled from, so I'm unsure of its accuracy.

Does USMS post a tentative schedule for these events somewhere on the usms.org website? I can't seem to find one. The bids have already been awarded, so I'm guessing that there is a tentative schedule for the events? I'm already planning my schedule for 2014 open water season and would love to get an idea of the 2014 USMS open water championship swim dates so that I don't schedule another event the same weekend as a championship that I may wish to attend.

Thanks for any help!

The only place the 2014 long distance national championships are published on the USMS site at this point in time is in the 2012 convention results page (http://www.usms.org/admin/conv/2012/), showing that these are where the national championship events were awarded (you'll have to scroll down to see the list). All dates and locations are tentative until the events are sanctioned. Once sanctioned, they will appear on the long distance calendar (http://www.usms.org/comp/ldcalendar.php).

It can also be found in the rulebook Appendix C http://www.usms.org/rules/appc.pdf

Most open water swims are not on USMS calendar. Google "open water swims 'your state' " and proced from there.
Good Luck.

I'm looking for Chicago's Big Shoulders swim, I think aug. or sept.

Big Shoulder is always the Saturday following Labor Day. The 2014 date is Saturday, September 6th.
