• Long course meters to short course yards: When meter distance = yard distance, yard time = (meter time in sec. – T ) / 1.1 (where T = the difference in the number of turns between short course and long course). For 1500 meter free to 1650 yards free, yard time = meter time – 30 sec.


  • Every year, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) publishes conversion factors to convert meters to yards in swimming.

    In this manner, how many yards are in a meter pool?

    Long course meters, or LCMs, for 50 meter pools. Short course yards, or SCYs, for 25 yard pools. Short course meters, or SCMs, for 25 meter pools.

    How do I calculate my swimming distance?

    Ask an open water swimmer: In open water, a mile is a mile. If your aim is to swim a mathematically-accurate mile and your pool is measured in yards, divide 1760 by the number of yards in your pool. If your pool is measured in meters, divide 1609.3 by the length.
