    Question 2017 short course nationals in Riverside, California

    Hey guys, enjoying reading the forum here today. I've recently came out of swimming retirement and started training again in the pool. More so just to get back in and stay in shape doing something I enjoy. I'd like to set a goal to qualify for riverside but I cant find the qualifying times needed. I swam for a few months (3) back in 2015 and qualified in a few swims but from what I've read the qualifying standard changes yearly.

    Also, as the meet gets closer will they post more info, accommodations, etc.,
    Lastly, what can I expect at a nationals meet? Is it laid back and social or super competitive? Definitely looking at the trip as a mini get away and enjoying myself with the wife.

    Thanks in advance, looking to get most info I can.

    NQTs for Riverside are expected to be posted on the USMS website by October 15 (by Jan 15 for Minn). Also by October 15 should be a basic meet information page that will include Order of Events and facility links (Jan 15 for Minn). The full meet information page should be available by January 1 (May 1 for Minn). Online entries should be available by February 15 (May 15 for Minn).

    Generally speaking you will find a little bit of everything at Masters Nationals. Anybody may swim up to three individual events without meeting qualifying times (some distance events may be exceptions), so the meet is open to all (registered masters swimmers). Others may chime in to their own personal experiences.

    OK I looked at Q times for my 70 --- 74 age group and the times are all faster than last year. BUT in the 65 -- 69 age group some times are actually slower than last year!!!

    OOHH OOOOO Now I did it by getting plane tickets for Nats. No backing out now! Work harder - lose weight - practice faster -less carbs and beer- more yards of quality AND my coach is happier!

    I'm 56. If I can pick up my intensity while managing my hip and back ailments I'll be there and I'd love to meet you.

    I have had 5 hip surgeries stemming from the 1st "recalled" hip parts. I seem to work myself back after each one BUT, it's getting more difficult each time. I sign up to put myself in a position to work harder to get there. It is fun even if you never win a medal!!

    If you are, I am too.

    I suggest getting your lodging, though. USMS Blocks were sold out at 2 hotels already.

    Not yet but don't worry they will not "close out" an event. If there are too many , your 6th event will be the one you choose to be dropped.
    I have not seen this happen in recent years.

    The 6th event was dropped last Summer at Oregon Nationals, so choose your 6th event wisely!

    Dropping the sixth event happens much more frequently at Summer Nationals. The sixth event has not been dropped at Spring Nationals since 1994. Past results do not necessarily reflect future trends, of course!

    6th = my lowest ranking on time event = 200 back stroke.

    Glad we booked early as many are filled. Thanx for the list to check for others. A few team mates are still on the fence as to enter or not.
