Meredith Griffin

The YMCA Long Course National Swimming Championship will be held July 19-23, 2022, at the Greensboro Aquatic Center in Greensboro, N.C. Since its debut in 1986, this national meet has served to highlight outstanding swimming competition and celebrate achievement by young athletes.

Qualifying standards, order of events and other competition information will be posted in early 2022. Please note: There will be five (5) full days of competition.

Teams and families will be able to take advantage of negotiated discount rates for hotels in the Greensboro area. Coaches or team managers should visit the Greensboro Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) hotel reservation website to review hotel options and follow CVB instructions to secure hotel rooms for your team. Coaches and families should only use reservation links provided by the CVB to ensure reservations are confirmed.  

The YMCA Long Course National Swimming Championship last took place in 2019 in College Park, Md., with 115 swim teams competing.

The Y's priority continues to be the safety of athletes, coaches and spectators. Throughout 2021 and 2022, Y-USA will monitor CDC guidance for preventing exposures to COVID-19 and recommended safety precautions will be put into place. Additional restrictions could impact the event schedule or even result in cancellation.

The Long Course National Swimming Championship is part of the Y's long-standing tradition to support the health and well-being of kids. Each year, millions of kids participate in Y youth sports like swimming, diving and gymnastics. Their participation helps build self-confidence and instills the importance of teamwork.
