UPDATE (Jan. 28, 2021): U.S. Masters Swimming has postponed its 2021 Spring National Championship and 2021 Summer National Championship because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Spring Nationals, which has been renamed the 2021 USMS Short Course National Championship, is now tentatively scheduled for July 21-25 at the Greensboro Aquatic Center in Greensboro, North Carolina, and Summer Nationals, renamed the 2021 USMS Long Course National Championship, is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 6-10 at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio. Both name changes are for just 2021.
To implement social distancing at the rescheduled events, USMS anticipates limiting the number of participants and to extending each event from four days to five to reduce the number of people in the facility at one time.
USMS and event organizers are also working on other measures to ensure the safety of participants. Any new information or additional adjustments will be announced when finalized, and full meet information is expected when registration opens in May.
USMS plans to host the 2021 TYR Last One Fast One virtual event April 16-May 2 to give members a chance to race their fellow competitors across the country from the safety of their local pool or body of open water.
