FACILITY:  The iconic IU Natatorium is located on the campus of IUPUI and has been a fixture in the community since 1982. The IU Natatorium has hosted hundreds of state, regional, national, and international events, including several Olympic Trials. Having just undergone an extensive renovation, the IU Natatorium is poised to be at the forefront of high-level competitive swimming for years to come. 

POOL: The pool will be set up as 25 short course yards using eight lanes for competition. A short course yards pool will also be available during warmup and competition. If two pools are needed to run the distance events (1000 & 1650), the diving well will be avaible for warm-up during the distance events only. The length of the competition course is in compliance and on file with USMS in accordance with articles 105.1.7 and 107.2.1, but as a bulkhead course, is subject to length confirmation. Eligibility of times for USMS Top 10 and Records will be contingent on verification of bulkhead placement. The Colorado electronic timing system along with a Daktronics scoreboard will be used.

If there are enough entries, the 1000 & 1650 freestyles may be swum in two pools.  All events MUST have entry seed times. The 1650 (Sat.) and 1000 (Sun.) require a positive check-in (in person) by 7:45am on the day of the event and by 12:00 noon for the 400 IM (Sat.) and 500 (Sun).  Failure to check-in before the deadline will result in being scratched from that event.  DISTANCE EVENTS: The distance events (1650, 1000, 500 free and 400 IM) will be swum COMBINED as MIXED GENDER events, but scored by gender and age group.  We will be limiting the 1000 Freestyle and the 1650 Freestyle to the first 24 men and the first 24 women.

WAITLIST for 1000 and 1650:
A waiting list will be available for swimmers who do not make the entry cut-off for the first 24 entries. Swimmers who are moved off the waitlist and entered into an open spot will be notified via email. You may be notified before or after the entry deadline depending on when spots become available.

WARM-UP PROCEDURES: Swimmers must enter the pool feet first in a cautious and controlled manner. No diving or backstroke starts will be allowed, except in designated sprint lanes. Two lanes shall be designated as one-way sprint lanes during the pre-meet warm-up sessions in the competition pools only at the designated time.  Any swimmer who acts in an unsporting or unsafe manner within the swimming venue may be considered for appropriate action or penalty by the referee (Rule 102.15.3). Pull-buoys, kick boards, fins, and hand paddles are not allowed in competition or warm-up pools.
