From the fellows putting on the swim legs of DCT's training tris:
The University of Maryland will be hosting the 2014 USMS Summer (Long Course) Nationals Aug 13-17, 2014 at their premier facility in College Park. This will be the first time in USMS history for a pool USMS National Championship to be hosted within Potomac Valley. Any registered USMS member may swim up to three individual events without meeting a qualifying time (exception: you must meet the qualifying time to swim the 1500 free). To swim more than three events you must meet the qualifying times for the additional events. All swimmers may swim up to 4 relays (relays do not have qualifying times). L4 swimming will pay for all of our relays. L4 swimmers should take advantage of this unique opportunity to participate in USMS Nationals held so close to home.
Please note the entry deadline for Nationals is July 9 (no exceptions are made for late entries). The meet information is available on the USMS website:
Also, DCRP will be hosting their summer long course meet at Wilson Aquatic Center, DC’s premier aquatics facility, on June 21. The meet is being held earlier than usual to accommodate swimmers wishing to attain seed times for Summer Nationals (see next paragraph). The meet announcement and entry form is available here (entry deadline is June 17):
