View Full Version : How do they swim nationals?

I am new to masters swimming, and masters nationals, I was wondering how the meet will be run. Do we all swim together or is it seperated into age groups? If it is age groups do we swim oldest to youngest? youngest to oldest?

thank you for your help

At nationals we swim in age groups going oldest to youngest. The exceptions to this are the distance races. The 400, 800 and 1500 free will be seeded by time only with genders mixed. The 400 IM is seeded by time, but men and women swim separately.
