Food Options

There is a concessions area on the concourse serving food and beverage items throughout the day, including fruit, yogurt, salads, sandwiches, and more. There may be additional food truck options on-site for lunch Friday through Sunday of the meet. 

A change from previous years: VIP Hospitality won’t be available at the meet. With the competition split into sessions, many swimmers will not be at the facility to enjoy breakfast and lunch when it typically would have been provided by VIP Hospitality. 

Event Merchandise

USMS partners will be on site with the latest racing gear and your favorite swim products. A wide variety of meet souvenirs and apparel items will also be available at the meet. Presale items must be picked up at the event merchandise store during the meet. The event store closed June 30.

Meet Social

There won’t be a formal social during this year’s Short Course Nationals. Visit the Golden Road beer garden in the plaza right outside the GAC starting at 12 p.m. on Friday through Sunday to enjoy a cold one while socializing with your teammates and fellow competitors post-race.

A Tokyo watch party will be held at Piedmont Hall (just across the street from the GAC) on Saturday, July 24. Come cheer on Team USA with your fellow swimmers! Doors open at 7:00 p.m. The first swimming finals session starts at 9:30 p.m., though other Tokyo coverage will be shown prior to swimming. There is no fee to attend. Drinks and light bites will be available à la carte. RSVP here for the watch party. (updated July 12)
