U.S. Paralympics Swimming and the Local Organizing Committees for our fall events have been working closely together since the onset of the quarantine and the vast COVID restrictions across the country.  We held out hope that everything would improve and together we would be able to safely run events again this fall.  Because our events bring athletes from across the nation, we have encountered additional restrictions with accessing facilities and running competitions.  

Important Updates:

  • The NE Para Open is cancelled for this fall. 
  • The Fred will be postponed until next year.
  • The California Classic is cancelled for this fall. 
  • We had hoped to reschedule the Indianapolis World Series as a domestic only event this fall.  Unfortunately this has also been cancelled however it is on the calendar for next April as a World Series again. 

The athletes, officials and event staff’s health and safety are our top priority at this time.  We look forward to returning to competitions and seeing you all on a pool deck soon!

 

Cheers,

U.S. Para Swimming Staff

Following a significant surge in COVID-19 cases across much of Canada, and revised health directives, Swimming Canada has decided to cancel the Speedo Can Am Para Swimming Open scheduled for Dec. 11-13 in Vancouver.

The event was to be held at the University of British Columbia Aquatic Centre in conjunction with U.S. Para Swimming.

“This was a difficult decision to make, but in light of all the information we have received, and the increased numbers across the country, we decided it is in the best interests of our swimmers, coaches, volunteers and officials,” said Senior Manager, Sport Development Jocelyn Jay. “I would like to thank the local organizing committee, Swim BC, UBC staff, and the volunteers and officials for working with us over the last several months to prepare for the competition.”
