    Yes, you may convert short course (yards or meters) times to long course for NQT purposes using the converter of your choice (some links are below, but this list is by no means exclusive). Some don't have 50 stroke events but just use freestyle if needed. USMS does not endorse one converter over another. Just pick the one that gives you the best results

    I just registered for our state meet in Illinois & it has an icon to help calculate meters to yard times. Very cool!
