  • 2018 USMS Short Course National Championships – IUPUI Indianapolis May 10 – 13

This year is the first time in 5 years that a Masters Short Course Yards National Championship has been close to the State of Michigan. Indianapolis is going to be the host of these Championships at the world class IUPUI Natatorium, which have hosted NCAA Championships, USA Nationals, Olympic Trials and the Pan American Games. Masters events include YMCA Nationals, USMS Nationals, and FINA Masters World Championships.

In 2013, the ninety-four Michigan Masters who swam in the meet were National Regional Club Champions and the highest scoring Club in the meet at the Short Course Nationals. It was the first time in Michigan Masters history that Michigan Masters has ever won a USMS Short Course National Championship Club Award. In 2009, the forty-five Michigan Masters who swam in the meet at IUPUI earned a first place USMS Regional Club Championship title at the Long Course Nationals. That was the first time in Michigan Masters history that a combined Michigan team won a USMS National Championship outside the state of Michigan. Michigan Masters have enjoyed winning team awards at past USMS Short Course National Championships at IUPUI in 1998, 2000, 2004, and 2013. In 1998, with 87 swimmers, the club earned a 3rd place finish. In 2000 with 54 swimmers and in 2004 with 57 swimmers, the club earned a 4th place finish at both short course nationals. With Michigan Masters success in the last 9 years at USMS Nationals, there is no reason to think that Michigan Masters swimmers can’t be one of the top teams in the country for 2018 Short Course Nationals and possibly win the 2018 USMS Regional Club Championship title. Every swimmer that enters the 2018 Short Course National meet will get a free team t-shirt and free warm top with the State logo on a red background that was used for the Michigan Masters team swimming caps that did not receive one at past nationals courtesy of our generous sponsor. You can see what these look like in photos of the team at past Nationals on the Michigan Masters website and in past Newsletters. Team caps will be available in both silicone and latex. Also if anyone wants to swim a relay, we will have e-mail sign ups effective now until the meet deadline. Information about the Short Course Nationals is available on the Meet Schedule and linked to the 2013 Nationals web page. Remember, when swimming out of State or at USMS National Championships, everyone swims as Michigan Masters. With a great turnout, Michigan Masters swimmers can have fun and be a team force.
