2017 YMCA Long Course Nationals Location
It's my pleasure to announce that the 2017 YMCA Long Course National Championship will be held July 31 through August 4 at the Greensboro Aquatics Center in Greensboro, North Carolina.
As 2017 will represent the first time we will be holding both our Short Course and Long Course National Championships in the same location, it's important that you know why. Our decision to bring Long Course to Greensboro next year was made for three reasons:
1. Our options were limited. Most of the other aquatic centers that have 50 meter pools are simply not available on the dates we requested, and those that are available cannot accommodate our needs.
2. We have an outstanding relationship with the Greensboro Aquatic Center. In the years we have held Short Course at the GAC, we have benefitted from what has become a true partnership with the staff there. They know us well, greatly value our business, and are willing to work with us in ways that others are not. This has very positively impacted our ability to deliver a high quality "Y" experience for everyone attending Short Course and will no doubt have the same impact on Long Course.
3. Travel to and lodging in Greensboro are very reasonable, especially compared to other cities. We've heard your concerns and we are committed to keeping costs - ours and yours - as low as possible. To this end, bringing Long Course to Greensboro in 2017 is a no-brainer.
We recognize that for some of you two trips to one location in the same year is not ideal. However, know that we are approaching 2017 as a year of transition, one that will give us the opportunity to continue to evaluate potential locations for both championships alongside everyone's ideals and then pursue long-term commitments that target the proverbial "sweet spot". As we do this, we continue to welcome your thoughts and feedback.
Shortly, you will receive a separate email from YMCA Competitive Sports Housing with detailed information about making hotel reservations for Long Course. In the meantime, you can begin reviewing your options at our housing website, http://www.cvent.com/d/1vql8q.
If I may answer any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thanks for your understanding, support, and ongoing commitment to helping our young athletes realize their full potential through Y swimming.
Thank you for transforming lives.
