Pre-Ordered Parking Permits Pickup

Instructions for Picking up your Pre-Ordered Parking Permits

When you arrive at the Natatorium for the first time, park in the Sports Garage adjacent to the Natatorium.  Use either the 2nd or 3rd entrance into the Sports Garage and take a ticket from the machine to open the gate.  You may park in any space in the middle section that is not marked as reserved for Permanent Permits.  

If you arrive on Sunday, there will be a volunteer in the Natatorium lobby who can give you your pre-ordered Parking Permits after you show an ID to identify yourself.

            If you arrive on Monday or later and:

  • you are a coach -your pre-ordered parking permits will be in your Team's Packet at Check-In.  
  • you are not a coach -your pre-ordered parking permits will be available at the Admissions/Heat Sheet Table in the North Concourse.

Once you are in possession of your Parking Permit, when you exit the garage scan the barcode on your permit to open the gate.You will not need to use the ticket you received on your initial entry.  On all other entries/exits after the first time you may scan the barcode on your permit to open the gate for entry and exit.

Time Trial Update

YMCA Long Course National Championship
Time Trial Update

The Meet Committee  is making an effort to avoid the problems that we experienced with Time Trials in last year's Long Course meet  by closely monitoring time trial entries as they are received  online.  

We are now at the point where our entries for the time trial events offered on Wednesday and Friday have filled the time available to conduct time trials on those afternoons.

As a result, we will no longer accept entries for these events on Wednesday:

  • #341/342 100 Backstroke
  • #343/344 200 Freestyle
  • #345/346 100 Butterfly
  • #347/348 50 Freestyle. 

There are alternate days available for 6 of these Wednesday events:

  • 100 Butterfly is on Tuesday as event #243/244
  • 100 Backstroke is on Thursday as event #447/448
  •   50 Freestyle is on Thursday as event #441/442.

As a result, we will no longer accept entries for these events on Friday:

  • #541/542 200 Butterfly
  • #543/544 100 Freestyle
  • #545/546 200 Individual Medley
  • #547/548 100 Breaststroke

There are alternate days available for 6 of these Friday events:

  • 100 Freestyle is on Tuesday as event #247/248
  • 200 Individual Medley is on Tuesday as event #249/250
  • 100 Breaststroke is on Thursday as event #443/444.

Unfortunately, there is no other offering of the 200 freestyle or 200 Butterfly.

Thank you for your understanding.

Online booking will begin after the first 24 hours, based on hotel availability.
