Over the past several years Albany Armada Aquatic Masters has hosted our annual Splash & Dash Sprint Pentathlon to kickstart the new year. In 2021, we’re keeping the tradition alive by switching to an online postal format! To participate, just swim and get a time for any of the five sprint events (50 Butterfly, 50 Backstroke, 50 Breaststroke, 50 Freestyle and 100 Individual Medley) within the month of February.  At the event's conclusion, we’ll host an online event for all participants and announce award winners.

LOCATION: Events may be swum in any 25-yard or 25-meter length pool but meter-times must be converted into short-course yards. Use this website to convert your meters times to yards.

DATE: Monday, February 1, 2021 to Sunday, February 28, 2021. All events must be swum on or between these dates.

ELIGIBILITY: All participants must be age 18 or older as of the last day of the meet and be currently registered members of U.S. Masters Swimming. Foreign swimmers must provide proof of current membership in their country’s Masters Swimming governing body.

ENTRY LIMITS: You may enter as many or as few events as you like. Submit all event results online in a single entry after your events have been swum.

ENTRIES:  Deadline for entries: March 10, 2021 at 11:59 PM PST. No paper entries accepted - online entries only.
Your online entry is not complete until you have received a confirmation of your entry by email. If you do not receive this confirmation following your entry, please contact the Meet Director.

TIMING: A pace clock or stopwatch may be used for timing purposes. If you use a pace clock add “.99” to your documented time. For a time submitted with no tenths or hundredths, .99 second shall be added to the time submitted. The Meet Director reserves the right to remove any clearly incorrect results.


  • Events can be swum anytime during the date range listed in the “DATE” section and do not all have to be swum on the same day. You can swim the same event multiple times within the date range listed and enter your fastest time.
