2024 Men’s NCAA Championship Pick ‘Em Contest Is Here!


Want to put your swimming knowledge to the test? Enter our annual Men’s NCAA Championship Pick ’em Contest, which is now live and will remain open up until a few hours before the start of the meet on Wednesday.

Not sure who to pick? Check out our event-by-event previews here.



Correctly picking a swimmer to place:

  • 1st – 7 points
  • 2nd – 5 points
  • 3rd – 4 points
  • 4th – 3 points

Correctly picking a swimmer to place in the top 4, but putting them in the wrong spot, will earn you 1 point.

Team picks will be streamlined with 10 points awarded for picking the winning team and 5 additional points for each correctly-guessed team after that:

  • 1st – 10
  • 2nd-10th – 5

Picks will close at 4 pm Eastern Time on Wednesday, March 27th, and at that time, we will post everyone’s picks for them to see.

By using the Google Forms format, you can go in and edit your responses up until 4 pm on Wednesday. You can also use this “edit responses” ability to go in and print or save your answers.

For team selections, you can use the “Unselect” column if you want to switch your picks after they’re first made. If you don’t change your mind, feel free to leave these blank.

The tie-breaker for prizes, if necessary, will be the most correctly-picked winners in the relevant time period, then 2nd-place finishers, then 3rd-place finishers, etc. in the relevant time period.

How many breaststrokers will get DQ’ed? Or, I forget maybe NCAA doesn’t enforce rules…

The women’s meet page says it will be broadcast live on NCAA.com. Does anyone know if it’s the same for the men’s meet?

Is this a new thing? I don’t recall it but then again I’m old.

Cal is going to win the 4×200 freestyle relay. I think jett, hanson, jones, alexy all have the capability of throwing down a 1:30 + a lasco 1:29 on the end! This is going to be a great meet!

Don’t forget Hobson all the way down the 500 list when you make your picks! And cal is pretty low in a few relays
