The Big Ten Conference has officially approved its dates for the 2021 championships, holding the meet across three different sites for the men’s, women’s and diving championships, confirmed in an email obtained by Swimming World.

The Big Ten diving championships will be held with both genders from February 24 – 27, 2021 at Purdue University, while the women’s swimming-only championships will be the same weekend at the University of Minnesota and the men’s swimming-only championships will be March 3 – 6 at The Ohio State University pending official confirmation from the OSU administration. Point totals from the diving championships will be added on to the respective men’s and women’s championship point totals.

The Big Ten Conference will be holding an abbreviated season that will officially get underway next weekend. Each school will be participating in three conference tri-meets across the next three weekends.

Ohio State is the defending champion in the women’s swimming and diving championships, while Michigan is the defending champion on the men’s side, ending Indiana’s three-year winning streak.
