U.S. Paralympics utilizes a "Trip List" system when assigning coaches to the staff of a national team trip.  Any coach may apply for the Trip List.  Assignments are made on an annual basis for any swimming events on the calendar for that year.  The Trip List application materials may be updated on an as needed basis as international rules and regulations are updated throughout the quadrennium.
