2014 Nationwide Spring National Championship
Santa Clara, California
May 1-4, 2014
U.S. Masters Swimming is pleased to return to Santa Clara for its 2014 Spring National Championships. Santa Clara has hosted several successful USMS national championships in the past, and many national records have been set at the Santa Clara Swim Club's pool.
There are 2,250 swimmers entered in the meet. Psych sheets for all events are available for review along with a team roster and swimmer lookup function. Heat sheets are also available for all pre-seeded events. Note that the 200 free and 200 IM on Sunday, as well as all events 400 yards and longer throughout the meet, are deck-seeded events where the swimmer must check in for these events before the deadline.
An estimated timeline is available for the meet. This timeline is only a guide for use in determining the approximate start of all events. We may run ahead of or behind the estimate. It is the responsibility of all swimmers to get to the pool well before their events and be behind the blocks before their events start. All swimmers must check in for all deck-seeded events by the check-in deadlines!
The full meet program is availalble as a PDF download (11.8 MB). All swimmers entered in the meet will receive a hard copy of the program when they check in at the registration desk at the meet.
Sixth Event Decision
The championship committee has decided NOT to drop the sixth event for swimmers who entered six events, so those swimmers will be able to swim all six of their entered events.
