USA Swimming has released a revamped schedule of events starting in the fall of 2020 and leading to the 2021 U.S. Olympic Trials in Omaha, Nebraska, with the promise of more than a dozen regional events to be scheduled as well.
The national governing body unveiled the schedule with an open letter from President and CEO Tim Hinchey, saying “as we continue to monitor the changes of this global pandemic, assess the lifting of restrictions across the country and prioritize the health and safety of our members, we are also optimistically planning for our return to competition.”
The schedule starts in November and will have eight events leading to the rescheduled trials in Omaha on June 13–20, 2021. National events that were scheduled for July and August 2020 will be canceled as part of the new schedule, and the letter promises at least 14 regional events to be announced at a later date with a target competition date of mid- to late-August.
“There is still much work to do, but we encourage you to remain hopeful,” Hinchey’s letter said. “There will be bumps along the road, but rest assured that we will respond swiftly and in the safest and most responsible way.”
