USA Diving Announces Winter Nationals at Indiana University Bloomington

USA Diving on Friday announced that it will hold the 2021 USA Diving Winter Nationals Championships in December at Indiana University Bloomington’s Counsilman Billingsley Aquatic Center.

The event will run from Dec. 11-18, with competition beginning Dec. 13. The meet will serve as a qualifier for the FINA World Championships, which take place from May 13-20, 2022 in Fukuoka, Japan. They will also help form the team for the 2022 World University Games (June 26-July 7) as well as FINA Grand Prix events, should they be held.

“We are happy to be bringing our 2021 Winter National Championships to IU Bloomington and to bring our top athletes back together to compete,” the organization’s president, Lee Michaud said in a press release. “After a successful Olympic Games, we are looking forward to showcasing our nation’s divers as they compete for a National title and the opportunity to represent USA Diving internationally this coming year.”

The scheduling of Nationals fills a large hole in the schedule that was released in Dec. 2020.

The qualification criteria and tentative schedule of events are all available at the meet page.
