2018 YMCA Long Course Nationals Announcement

Y-USA announces date and location for the 2018 YMCA Long Course National Championship

The YMCA of the USA is pleased to announce the 2018 YMCA Long Course National Championship will be held at the University of Maryland in College Park, MD beginning Monday July 30 through Friday August 3. 

This recently refurbished venue is conveniently within driving distance for many of our teams.  The YMCA Long Course Championship was last held at the University of Maryland in 2010.  We look forward to working again with the committed University staff who historically provide a high-quality meet experience for our athletes and families.

Y-USA is pleased to announce a large selection of hotel options with varied room rates.  With affordability in mind, we have partnered with the local hotel community to lower overall travel costs for participants, their families and coaches. Please note the deadline to reserve the rooms at these reduced rates may vary from hotel to hotel.  Please plan to reserve your room no later than June 25.

We are also exploring dorm housing options with the University. Please check back in a few weeks for an update.

The University of Maryland is looking forward to welcoming the Y’s youth athletes, coaches and families this summer. To book your hotel stay please click the link below:
