Larry Herr Explains Rationale Behind Trials Cuts

Hotel Information for the 2016 Olympic Trials
Hotels for the 2016 Olympic Trials in Omaha will open for reservations approximately 15 months prior to the start of the Trials. USA Swimming and the city of Omaha will publish all the information on the Trials at that time. Thanks for your patience.
Time Trials to be Offered at Winter Nationals and Winter Juniors
The 2014 AT&T Winter National Championships (Greensboro, NC) and Speedo Junior Championships (Federal Way, WA) will both be 3 ½ day events with a Long Course Time Trial on the morning after each meet. Bonus events will also be allowed for both events, although for the AT&T Winter Nationals, bonus events will be allowed for 18-under swimmers only.
