2014 Canadian Short Course Championships

The Canadian Nationals will be held in Windsor, Ontario, Canada from Friday May 16 through May 19, 2014 at the Windsor International Aquatic and Training Center. This facility just opened in August 2013 and is one of the best aquatic facilities in the world. The FINA World Short Course Swimming Championships will be held at this venue in December 2016, so you know it's and excellent facility. Michigan Masters is expecting a great turnout because this National Championship is very close to the state of Michigan.

With Michigan Masters success last year at the 2013 USMS Short Course Nationals in Indianapolis, there is no reason to think that Michigan Masters swimmers can't be one of the top teams and possibly win the 2014 Canadian National Championships team title. Every swimmer that enters the 2014 Canadian National meet will get a free team t-shirt (if they don't already own one) with the State logo on a red background that was used for the Michigan Masters team swimming caps. Also if anyone wants to swim a relay, we will have e-mail sign-ups after the meet deadline when the team rosters are available. Information on the meet is available and linked on the Meet Schedule.

Remember when swimming out of state at a National Championship meet, everyone swims for Michigan Masters as your club, except swimmers that are registered with MLAM or MVP as your club. State Meet teams and Workout Groups are not recognized at this meet and only swimmers that are registered with a club can swim in this meet. Also any Unattached swimmers that are registers as UC19 will not be able to swim in this meet per FINA rules. All UC19 swimmers will have to transfer to the Michigan Masters Club or another registered club in United Stated Masters Swimming.

You must have a Passport or Enhanced Driver's License to enter the country of Canada at the border. If you do not have time to get a passport, you can go to the Michigan Secretary of State Office and apply for an Enhanced License. You must bring a copy of your birth certificate and current Michigan driver license to meet the requirements for an Enhanced Driver's License.

The deadline for individual entries to enter the meet in April 27, 2014 and team rosters will be available so Michigan Masters can enter relays. The dealine for relay entries is May 4, 2014.You must enter this meet using the online entry system. The meet will not accept paper entries. The meet entry limit is 1000 swimmers so it's best to enter now and not procrastinate because if you do you will miss the entry deadline. With a great turnout, Michigan Masters swimmers can have fun and be a team force.
