Selection Procedures

The process by which athletes qualify for U.S. teams to major international competitions, such as the World Para Swimming Championships and the Paralympic Games, is generally posted 12-18 months before the competition. U.S. Paralympics or the relevant national governing body may use other methods, including invitation, to select teams to other international competitions.
