    2013 Spring Nationals Roster and Psych Sheets

    The meet roster, team roster and psych sheets are available for the 2013 USMS Spring National Championship. There are 1,635 entries in the meet.

    Empty lanes can dampen competitive conditions and we’d like to avoid that when possible. Although we cannot offer any refunds, if you are absolutely certain you will not be swimming in the meet, or even certain events, please let us know and you’ll be removed from those events to cut down on empty lanes and provide for more competitive heats. Some of you probably already know whether you’ll be traveling or not, so if it is the latter, please let us know before we seed the meet. Also, please note once we take you out of an event, we cannot put you back in.

    Please email any scratches or entry errors to championship@usms.org. Changes will be accepted until April 19 or until the meet has been seeded.

    The Championship Committee is happy to announce the sixth event will NOT be dropped for this meet. Swimmers who entered six events will be able to swim all six.

    Indy Seeding Decisions

    The 1000 and 1650 freestyle events will be seeded slowest to fastest by entry time, regardless of age and gender. The 400 IM and 500 freestyle events will be seeded slowest to fastest by entry time, regardless of age, men and women separate. All other events will be seeded by age group, with the oldest age groups first, slowest to fastest within each age group and men and women separate. Menís heats will precede womenís heats for all but the 500, 1000 and 1650 freestyle events. All events will be swum in two 8-lane courses (the length of the 50M pool separated by bulkheads).

    Positive check-in is required for the 500 freestyle, 1000 freestyle, 1650 freestyle and 400 IM. All other events will be preseeded.

    Does this mean that men and women will be swum concurrently, but in separate pools, for the 1000 and 1650 free events? That seems to be what the timeline implies.

    From Update #2: The 1000 and 1650 freestyle events will be deck seeded by time (men and women combined). That means that women and men will be swimming together in the same heat.

    Re: 2013 Spring Nationals Roster and Psych Sheets

    The estimated timeline is not making sense for Saturday, May 11, 2013. With 16 heats of Men's 200 Fly the event is suppose to start at the estimated time of 2:00 PM and end at the estimated time of 2:25 PM and at this time the Women's 200 Fly starts with 13 heats and is suppose to end at 3:50 PM and at that time the Mixed 200 Fee Relay starts. The question I ask is why does the Women's 200 Fly take 1 hour and 25 minutes to finish, when the Men's 200 Fly with 16 heats takes 25 minutes. Is the timeline for the relay suppose to start at 2:50 PM instead of 3:50 PM? I ask this because a lot of swimmers are wondering when the Mixed Relay starts and with this event, the timeline does not make sense. Granted 16 heats of Men's 200 Fly at 25 minutes seems like an understatement but not as bad as 13 heats of Women' 200 Fly at an hour an 25 minutes as an overstatement.

    Good catch Skip. There is a typo for the start time of the Mixed 200 Medley Relay. It is estimated to start at 2:50 pm (not 3:50 pm). The finish time should be 3:25 pm. Note however that the 200 Fly is on Friday, May 11, 2013.
