Today, USA Swimming officially announced that the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Swimming will be split into two events, with Wave I on June 4-7, 2021 and Wave II on June 13-20, 2021.


Following the extraordinary events of the COVID-19 pandemic, USA Swimming developed a revised plan to conduct Trials in a safer and healthier environment for the competitors and everyone involved. Given the current environment, and the need to address concerns related to over-crowding in the athlete areas, warm-up pool and athlete seating areas, the decision was made to divide the event into two.


The official press release is attached and available online at  www.usaswimming/trials.


Additionally, we have provided you with a summary document of the important changes, rationale and background for these new events.


We invite you to join us for an informational webinar to learn more. The registration links for the Olympic Trials Information Sessions are below. Participants will receive the link and passcode upon registering.
