COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO - Today, U.S. Paralympics Swimming announced that the 2023 U.S. Paralympics Swimming National Championships, presented by Toyota, will be hosted at the Rosen Aquatic & Fitness Center in Orlando, Florida. The competition is set to run from Dec. 15-17, 2023 and will be the first time U.S. Paralympics Swimmming has hosted an event in Orlando, Florida.


The Rosen Aquatic & Fitness Center is one of the fastest competition pools in the nation. The state of-the-art indoor aquatics facility features an indoor 8-lane 50-meter competition pool, a dive well with 4 lap lanes, a heated teaching and training pool with 7 lanes, along with ample spectator seating. With close proximity to hotels and restaurants, the Rosen Aquatic & Fitness Center offers a fantastic venue for athletes competing at nationals.


 “We’ve had an incredibly successful year of competition for Team USA,” said Erin Popovich, Director, U.S. Paralympics Swimming. “We are extremely excited to continue this success as we close off the year with the 2023 U.S. Paralympics Swimming National Championships. The Rosen Aquatic & Fitness Center in Orlando is the perfect place for this year’s national championships, and we are looking forward to watching Team USA compete this December.”  


With Toyota as its presenting partner once again, the 2023 U.S. Paralympics Swimming National Championships will be an exciting opportunity to watch many of the nation's top Para swimmers compete for prestigious national titles. This event will be a great opportunity to watch veteran athletes compete while also showcasing new names to the Para swimming community. Leading up to nationals, U.S. Paralympics Swimming will host the California Classic in Yucaipa, CA and The Fred in Cummings, GA.
