Bears Ready For U.S. International Team Trials
GREENSBORO, N.C. – California will be represented by a baker's dozen worth of swimmers at the 2022 United States International Team Trials on April 26-30 at the Greensboro Aquatic Center. The five-day meet will determine the U.S. rosters for the upcoming summer, including the FINA World Championships in Budapest, Hungary.
Each day will feature prelims and finals sessions, starting at 6 a.m. PT and 3 p.m. PT, respectively. All preliminary sessions will be streamed live on USA Swimming's streaming platform, while finals will be broadcast live on the Olympic Channel from Tuesday to Friday, with CNBC taking over the coverage for the conclusion of the meet on Saturday.

The winner of each Olympic event (all events excluding the 50 back, 50 breast, 50 fly) and the top-four finishers in the 100 and 200 free events have the top qualification priority. Second-place finishers in each Olympic event other than the 100 and 200 free will qualify, and winners of the non-Olympic 50-meter events are the third priority.
The trials will also be used as a qualifier for the Junior Pan Pacific Championships (Aug. 24-27 in Honolulu, Hawaii) and the Mel Zajac International meet (June 3-5 in Vancouver, Canada). The age cutoff for both meets is under 19, leaving Cal signee Matthew Chai as the only possible contender for these meets.
