    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!

    Re: 2017 short course nationals in Riverside, California

    Psych sheets are now posted:
    http://www.usms.org/comp/scnats17/heats/

    The 50s, 100s and 200s will be preseeded, with the oldest age groups first, slowest to fastest within each age group, men and women separate. The 500 freestyles and the 400 IMs will be deck seeded, with the oldest age groups first, slowest to fastest within each age group, men and women separate. The 1000 and 1650 freestyles will be deck-seeded slowest to fastest by entry time, regardless of age, with men and women separate. THEREFORE ALL EVENTS 400 YARDS AND LONGER WILL REQUIRE POSITIVE CHECK-IN.

    Heat sheets for preseeded events, as well as the estimated timeline, are expected to be posted on the USMS website on or about April 14.

    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 any of the 50s, 100s or 200s, please let us know and you'll be removed from those events before we seed the meet to cut down on empty lanes and provide for more competitive heats. Please note that once we take you out of an event, we cannot put you back in. Scratches will be accepted through April 7.

    Please email scratches or entry errors to championship@usms.org.

    Attached is the estimated timeline for the meet.

    The pace of the meet will be independent of this timeline (i.e. it won't be sped up or slowed down to keep with the timeline). The timeline is purely a guide as to our best estimate of when events will begin.

    Jeff, do you happen to know if the 30 min warmup after the 500 will open up any lanes to allow us to go off the blocks?
    Thanks in advance

    Yes, that is the plan. The On-deck coaches will help with starts. Please thank them for volunteering their time.

    Im gonna bump this question again, only because I still can't find the answer to this question. Any info would be helpful. I can find a map, but not times or frequencies.

    The weather forecast for next weekend is 91-92 degrees. Be prepared. I don't recall much shade at this facility.
