Spring Nationals will be April 29–May 2 in North Carolina, Summer Nationals Aug. 5–8 in Ohio

U.S. Masters Swimming announced its 13 national championships for 2021 on Wednesday.

The organization will return to the Greensboro Aquatic Center in Greensboro, N.C., for the 2021 USMS Spring National Championship on April 29–May 2. The facility, which has hosted two Spring Nationals and multiple NCAA championship meets, recently underwent an $8.2 million renovation to add a fourth pool. Nearly 2,000 swimmers are expected to compete.

The 2021 USMS Summer Nationals will be Aug. 5–8 at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio. The pool hosted the meet in 2015, a competition that drew nearly 1,000 participants.

USMS will also contest six open water national championships: the USMS Sprint-Distance Open Water Nationals on May 15 in Boerne, Texas; the USMS Long-Distance Open Water Nationals on May 16 in Boerne, Texas; the USMS 2-Mile Cable Open Water Nationals on June 26 in Sweet Home, Ore.; the USMS Middle-Distance Open Water Nationals on July 10 in Newport, Calif.; the USMS Marathon-Distance Open Water Nationals on July 17 in Applegate Lake, Ore.; and the USMS Ultramarathon-Distance Open Water Nationals on July 24 in Newport, Vt.
