Women's Swimming and Diving Championship Return to Worcester


Posted: February 5, 2017

The 2017 America East Conference Women’s Swimming and Diving Championship is returning to Worcester!  This event is scheduled for February 9th – 12th, 2017 and will be held once again at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) for the fourth year in a row.

For this event, five universities from the America East Conference will be competing with hopes of qualifying for the 2017 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships at IUPUI (Indiana) on March 16-18.

The following universities will be competing at this event: University of Maine, University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), University of New Hampshire and the University of Vermont.

The one outlier of the region, Baltimore County, has a very competitive squad returning to the heart of the Commonwealth with hopes of defending last year’s title!

The venue at WPI Sports & Recreation Center is a popular pool for swim meets and a major reason why this event has returned for consecutive years.

The pool features a ten lane SCM competition course with five additional lanes of warm up/warm down, state of the art electronic timing and LED scoreboard, vast deck space able to hold up to 500 swimmers, and spectator seating able to hold over 400 people.

Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to view some of the best female intercollegiate swimmers and divers in the country!

For all visiting swimmers, divers and spectators, there will be free parking in Worcester's first green rooftop parking garage, at the WPI Parking Garage. The garage holds up to 500 vehicles and it’s located at 151 Salisbury Street, Worcester, MA 01609 (it’s just meters away from the pool at the WPI Sports & Recreation Center). Additional street parking is available on Institute Road, Salisbury Street, and their off streets.
