2019 Long Course - Posted Today
No Chase-Starts this year - UPDATED

Change in Starting Locations for Preliminary Sessions:

In previous years, we have started most preliminary events from both ends of the pool using a chase start protocol. This year we are starting all heats of preliminary events at one end of the pool:
  • The 50 Meter events will start at the diving board end of pool
  • All other events will start at the Instructional pool end of the pool
  • At the finish all swimmers will remain in the water until the next heat has started using flyover starts (except 50-meter events, backstroke events and medley relays).
This change has been made to enable our ability to conduct the meet in a Championship manner with a smaller team of officials and timers.

Campus Shuttle
We understand the change this year to use Lot #1 for parking requires a longer walk to the Eppley Rec Center pool. 

We suggest that as the driver of a car or van, you drop off all your passengers at the swimmer drop-off area in front of the Rec Center and then drive to lot #1 to park.

We are in the process of working through details to have a shuttle bus/van running during periods of the day when people will be arriving and departing from the pool.  Most likely seating will be limited in the shuttles which is why we are suggesting you drop off passengers first.

As details become available, we will provide this information on planning and using the shuttle service as an update on this web site.
