The 2018 Pan Am Masters Championships are following the FINA guidelines. With there being no 18-24 Age group in FINA guidelines, the UANA Technical Committee has deviated from this rule to allow the host to include the 18 - 24 age group. these swimmers CAN NOT swim in any of the designated relays mentioned above. They can however, form their own relay 72+. When we submit results, all relays 100+ and over are submitted to FINA and the 18-24 age group relays are submitted only to those federations who accept this age group for National and Top Ten. You CAN NOT have a 24 year old, a 26 year old and two 50 year old swimmers for a 200+ relay. Training Provision: The YMCA Aquatic Center will be open for training from 0600 to 2200 hours (6:00am to 10:00pm). The venue may be limited for warm up to those athletes only competing on that day.
