03/08/17: What are the differences between short course and long course seasons
Swimming for a club like the Marlins is a year round sport. Each swim season is divided up in short course yards season (SCY) September to April,  and a long course season (LCM) May to mid-August.
During the fall/winter SC season all over the northern hemisphere, meets are held in 25 meter pools, except in the USA where most SC meets are held in 25 yards pools.
During the LC season, most meets are held in 50 meter pools. Olympic swimming is held in an "Olympic Size Pool" which is 50 m long.
Competing in a 50 m pool is quite different from competing in a 25 yd pool. Swimmers entered in a 50 will not have to make any turns in a LCM pool! Swimmers entered in a 100 will only need to turn once at the 50 end of the pool.
Try not to compare your SC Yards times with the LC meter times. Just keep two sets of your best times!
