2015 USMS LONG COURSE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
Spire Institute August 6 -9
Seventy-one swimmers have entered the 2015 Long Course National Championships, due to start soon - from August 6 - 9, 2015. Michigan Masters is one of four large clubs at these championships.
We are planning on entering 52 relays over the course of the meet, and the preliminary relays are linked here.
If you have entered the meet, but for any reason do not plan on swimming, please let Skip Thompson know via email. firstname.lastname@example.org
The estimated timeline for the meet is posted here. However, remember - the timeline is only a guide for use and the actual times of the events may vary somewhat from the estimate - so be prepared to be available BEFORE the timeline estimate of your event. It's best to get to the pool well ahead of your event to be safe!
In 2013, Michigan Masters were National Regional Club Champions and the highest scoring club in the meet at the Spring Short Course Nationals in Indianapolis. In 2014, Michigan Masters was the first club from the U.S. to be the highest scoring club at the Canadian Masters Nationals. In 2015, this could be the year of a three-peat with Long Course Nationals at Spire.
Every swimmer that enters the 2015 Long Course National meet will get a free team T-shirt (if they have not received one prior to this meet) with the state logo on a red background that has been used for the Michigan Masters team swimming caps. Information about the Summer Long Course Nationals was sent to all Michigan LMSC members in the May/June 2015 issue of Swimmer Magazine on pages 36 to 39 and additionally is listed here, and on the USMS website. With a great turnout, Michigan Masters can have fun and be a team force.
