The Las Vegas meet is held at the world-class UNLV Buchanan Natatorium, Jim Reitz Pool
UNLV Buchanan Natatorium, Jim Reitz Pool. Indoor 50-meter by 25-yard pool. This meet is short course yards. Expert measurements will be taken before and after the meet for potential SCY record-setting swims!
There is no postal address; do not use the university’s generic Maryland Pkwy address. Location is on E. Harmon Ave, 1000 feet east of the intersection of Harmon Ave and Swenson St, Las Vegas, NV.
Very close to McCarran airport, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Hofbrauhaus, and Hyatt Place.
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.
AIR TEMPERATURE: This facility maintains a cool air temp; warm clothing, boots, and parkas are advised, maybe an extra towel too! Good news is the showers are terrific!
