Disability athletes for the Age Group Zone Team are chosen through a point process. All athletes considering joining the Zone Team should complete the Age Group Zone Team Application. There is a non-refundable $25 application fee for all applicants.
There will also be six (6) disabled athletes selected to the team: three (3) males and three (3) females. The formula used for selection takes the swimmer’s time (preferably LCM to avoid conversion differences from SCY to LCM) in their respective classification for eligible events and divides it by the US Paralympic Emerging Times (Z = emerging time/actual time (Z=E/A). Results are then added and divided by the number of eligible events. The top three of each gender is chosen for the Zone Team.
