welcome

We are glad to welcome you to our website

This might not be true for other ticket-resale sites. As background, PrimeSport is the official partner of the NCAA and many professional sport teams and worked with USA Swimming for the 2016 Olympic Trials. As always, if you have any questions about the Olympic Trials, please contact the National Events Department.

For those of you who missed the first message sent on August 27, that message is copied at the bottom of this email. We are expecting a large Olympic Trials, so please make your hotel and ticket arrangements, if you have not already done so. To date, 1,072 athletes have Olympic Trials standards (this is less than the over 1,300 athletes who had cuts in October 2015).

Timelines for both preliminaries and finals are being worked on and will be available a few weeks in advance of the Trials. This will potentially make the traffic and parking around the CHI Center Omaha a challenge on those nights. This did happen in 2012 and 2016, and the situation was managed relatively smoothly. In 2020, this should not be a problem for teams, as our clubs will have designated parking on the east side of the venue. There will also be a drop-off area in front of the venue on 10th Street.

It may make parking a little more challenging for spectators, and the Organizing Committee is readying a plan that will be sent to all ticket holders in the spring of 2020. We want to do the best job possible to make the Trials a fantastic experience for all athletes, coaches and clubs. Congratulations on having your athlete(s) qualify for the 2020 U.

Olympic Trials in Omaha. Our goal is to keep these short and to the point, and with the exception of this first message, no more than a few items will be sent in each email update. As a reminder, the competition will be June 21-28, 2020 at the CHI Health Center Omaha (note the new name of the venue).

Finals will begin at 6:45 p. In order to make your Trials check-in experience as simple as possible, we ask that you upload photos of your athletes and support staff prior to arriving in Omaha. Please refer to the Meet Info (available soon) at www. We are hopeful the venue will sellout, like it did in 2016.

Breakfasts may also be offered, depending on demand. More information will follow on these options. You will be able to sign up for these meals through the On-Line Meet Entry (OME) once it opens a couple of months before the Trials. Please note the deadline to sign up for meals may be prior to the meet entry deadline.

If you have any questions about the Olympic Trials, please contact the National Events Department at USA Swimming. Olympic Team National Team National Jr.

Olympic Team Trials has been split into two waves. This is the place to be for all news and updates on the biggest, most exciting, and suspense-filled swimming event held on American soil. We are providing you the QR code for an app that will allow you to register for COVID-19 testing at the Olympic Trials in Omaha. This registration (through our testing partner, Premier Medical Group (PMG)) must be completed in advance of your travel in order to help speed the process for your on-site testing at Trials.

Vaccinations do not excuse someone from COVID-19 Testing. They will only help with excusing someone from Contact Tracing, provided the person is Fully Vaccinated. The pre-travel COVID-19 test MUST BE A PCR TEST. Rapid Antigen tests do not satisfy this test!!!. Within the app, there are a number of waivers that Participants are required to acknowledge and agree to.

The testing process in Omaha will begin in Room 212 of the CHI Health Center Convention Center (2nd floor). This is the first location to which all athletes, coaches and team support must report to begin the testing and credentialling process. Sincerely,Olympic Trials Organizing Committee 2020 U. The 2020 Olympic Trials COVID-19 Mitigation Plan and the Dispute Resolution Process documents are attached.

It is incredibly important that you and your athletes review these documents. If there are any questions about these documents, please let us know. We are working through the final details in order to have a useful app at which all COVID-19 testing (pre-Omaha and while in Omaha) can be managed.

This app will also likely be the location at which to sign all waivers for the Trials. More information will be sent on this topic next week. Sincerely, Olympic Trials Organizing Committee 2020 U. The FOA is defined as the first event in which you will be competing (or coaching). This means that if an athlete is racing on June 4 or June 13, they must count backwards from that date and have the PCR test done within that timeframe.

This means that if an athlete is racing on June 4 or June 13, they must arrive at least 48 hours prior to their first swim (early on June 2 or early on June 11). Those who are Fully Vaccinated (14 days past their final vaccination) will be exempt from Contact Tracing.

As of the writing of this message, COVID-19 testing will still be required for those who are Fully Vaccinated. Thank you for your patience as we worked through this important detail. Sincerely, Olympic Trials Organizing Committee - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Dear Coaches and Clubs: Please see below for important information about the 2020 U.

This is an extremely important point, so please share this message with your athletes, other team staff and parents. This will be a comprehensive document that will outline all the steps related to pre-travel testing, testing while in Omaha, on-site mitigation plans and the dispute resolution process in case there is a positive test.

All athletes will be required to sign a waiver acknowledging their compliance with this plan prior to competing in Omaha. Please note, athletes with at least one Wave II Time Standard must be entered in the 2021 Olympic Trials - Wave II OME.
