The YMCA of the USA is pleased to announce that the YMCA Short Course National Championship Meet will return to the Greensboro Aquatic Center (GAC) in Greensboro, NC, in 2018, 2019 and 2020.  The 2018 dates will be April 3-7, 2018.

Following a thorough review process that included a committee of event volunteers and swim coaches, Y-USA selected the GAC based on the high quality of the facility, the experience level of the staff, the reasonable cost to families and teams, and ongoing support of the local community. The selection committee thoughtfully reviewed each bid and visited all of the proposed sites. The committee's recommendation was determined based on an extensive evaluation rubric, and coach feedback.

We look forward to working again with the qualified and committed staff of the GAC, the Greensboro CVB and our other local partners to provide a high quality meet experience so that our athletes can achieve their full potential.

Y-USA is pleased to announce a larger selection of hotel options with lower hotel sleeping room rates for the 2018 YMCA National Short Course Championship.  With affordability in mind, we have partnered with the Greensboro Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Greensboro hotel community to lower overall travel costs for Championship participants.  This year you will see a larger variety of hotel options, many at lower rates than previous years. Your support of the preferred Greensboro hotels is appreciated. Please note the deadline to reserve the rooms at these reduced rates is March 17, 2018.  This is a full week later than past hotel reservation deadlines.

In addition to the lower rates, when you book with these partner hotels, you'll receive coupons for additional discounts on local attractions and restaurants, generating even greater savings for you. These additional discounts are only offered to attendees who book the hotels listed on this site by the March 17 deadline. We are confident you'll want to take advantage of the overall savings involved when you book your hotel reservation with these partner hotels.

Please note that Y-USA has ended the relationship with the vendor utilizing the "Stay with Us" model for hotel reservations. We are confident that the partnership with the Greensboro Convention and Visitors Bureau will result in an improved experience for you at a lower overall cost.

The City of Greensboro is looking forward to welcoming YMCA athletes, coaches, families and friends in the spring. To book your hotel stay please click the link: http://ymca.lodginglead.com/event/

Below are several very important items that coaches need to know:

  • Please make sure that you visit the YMCA LC Nationals web site at: http://ymca.ymcaswimminganddiving.org/2017LC   This site contains all the information regarding preparing, entering, travel to, and participating in YMCA LC Nationals.  Please pass this link to your national swimmers and their parents and have them sign-up for email notifications of new information postings.
  • When you submit your online meet entries, you will be asked for your senior swimmers' names and the college/university they will be attending.  This information will be included in the heat sheets so be prepared when you submit your meet entries.
  • All coaches will need to have current credentials to be on deck, including a background check within the past two years.  If you are a registered USA-S coach, this is part of the USA-S registration process.  If you are not USA-S registered, it is your responsibility with your YMCA to have this background check performed.
  • This year, all meet entry fees will be invoiced and paid through our National partner, TeamUnify.  There will be no need to request a check through your YMCA or bring cash to the meet.  The credit card that you used when completing the annual registration of your team will be automatically charged your entry fees after the entry deadline has passed.  The credit card is the one that you have on file and used during team registration or requesting a sanction for a championship.
  • To manage your TeamUnify Credit card, refer to this Frequently Asked Questions: TeamUnify FAQ
  • Extremely important: Please ensure that this credit card has a transaction limit that is greater that your meet entry fees and that the credit card will accept a total charge amount that is greater that your meet entry fees.
  • If you are going to use a high school time for a qualification time, remember, times from high school meets are only allowed if the meet is USA-S Observed.
  • If you have any questions or concerns about the eligibility of a swimmer or the eligibility of a swimmer's entry time, contact Jim Ryan (jryan@ymcade.org) as soon as possible.
  • Parade theme is the "The 1980's" in celebration of the first YMCA LC Nationals.   We are looking forward to seeing the creative costumes of the athletes during the Athlete Welcome Parade on Tuesday.
  • Online Time trials entries close on the same day and time as the main championship entries: Monday July 24 at 5:00pm.  Note: a total of three (3) time trials can be swum by each athlete during the meet.
  • Please encourage your officials and parents who will be attending the championship to volunteer as either a timer or deck official.  Information is available at the YMCA SC National web site.

Officials and Timers: You are cordially invited to help us at the 2017 YMCA Long Course Swimming Championship Meet.

There is a need for YMCA Level I, YMCA Level II, and/or USA-S Officials each day at Preliminaries, Time Trials and Finals. All officials attending the meet are strongly encouraged to sign up to work at this meet.

Timer positions may also be available depending on the number of swim official volunteers. If you are experienced in timing, but are not an Certified Swim Official and would like to volunteer, we encourage you to do so. ....More
