2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Swimming Blast Message #12 (Jan. 25, 2021)


Dear Coaches/Clubs:


Today, USA Swimming officially announced that the 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Swimming will be split into two events: 

Wave I on June 4-7, 2021

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.

A couple extra items:

1.  If you have a qualifying time for Wave 2 and a second event that qualifies for Wave 1 you will be allowed to swim both in Wave 2

2. Top 2 finishers in Wave 1 will advance to Wave 2
