The 2020 U.S. Paralympic Team Trials for cycling, swimming and track and field have been rescheduled to take place June 17-20, 2021 in Minneapolis. The multi-sport trials will feature three days of competition followed by an announcement of who will represent Team USA at the Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
The 2020 U.S. Paralympic Team Trials will feature more than 250 athletes competing in cycling, swimming and track and field at venues around the greater Minneapolis area, including the Jean K. Freeman Aquatic Center at the University of Minnesota, McKnight Stadium at Breck School and cycling will take place near downtown Minneapolis.
The U.S. Paralympics team is working diligently with our security and athlete safety team to ensure that venues are safe, and athletes and staff are informed of current events that could impact their safety.
Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and precautions, U.S. Paralympics has made the difficult decision to not allow spectators at the upcoming U.S. Paralympic Team Trials to be held June 17-20, 2021 in Minneapolis. This decision will impact all three sports in contention - U.S. Paralympics Cycling, U.S. Paralympics Swimming and U.S. Paralympics Track & Field. U.S. Paralympics and the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee are dedicated to protecting the health and safety of Team USA. We will continue to closely monitor local and federal guidance to reevaluate this policy should the situation change.
Having three sports going consecutively at once allows people to be exposed to the Paralympic movement in a way that hasn’t been done before at a trials experience.
