The Las Vegas meet is held at the world-class UNLV Buchanan Natatorium, Jim Reitz Pool

  • Map coordinates: 36.10913721140823,-115.14641761529799.
  • 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.
  • The primary timing system will be automatic timing. Times may be submitted for USMS records and USMS Top 10 consideration.
  • 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!

Swimmers will be seeded in heats according to entry time, regardless of age and gender. Heats will be ordered slowest to fastest. Positive check-in is required for the 500 Free and encouraged for all events. Check-in will be available on SwimPhone.com beginning at 8pm on January 17. Positive Check-In for the 500 Free closes at 3:15pm.

We offer a 200 freestyle relay this year, which allows an all female relay, an all male relay and a mixed (2 female + 2 male) relay. Swimmers may only swim one relay per event (may not swim the female + the mixed relay nor the male + the mixed relay). Once relays cards have been issued, no changes in age group are allowed.


  1. Poker cards with your results stickers may be collected for competition with other swimmers to see who has the best poker hand. The best two poker hands win big prizes!
  2. Some other surprise gifts too!
