Back to All News

INDIANAPOLIS – USA Swimming and the 2024 U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Swimming Local Organizing Committee are launching the Indiana Water Safety Program (Swim IN Safety). In partnership with the Indy Aquatic Alliance longitudinal program, Swim IN Safety will teach water safety to as many Hoosiers as possible ages 5 and older over the course of the next two years. The goal of the program is to train 25,000 individuals to be water safe in 2023 and an additional 25,000 in 2024. Swim IN Safety will serve as one of several legacy initiatives surrounding the 2024 Olympic Swimming Trials set to take place at Lucas Oil Stadium June 15-23, 2024.

Swim IN Safety aims to recruit organizations to teach programming which entails five 40-minute sessions to teach participants to save themselves if they fall in water. Indiana Sports Corp is currently collecting interest form applications for organizations throughout Indiana looking to take part in the Swim IN Safety initiative. The form can be found on the Indiana Sports Corp website or via this link. In addition, Indiana Sports Corp is offering a virtual informational session on May 16 at 9 AM for those who fill out the interest form.

Held every four years, the Olympic Trials rank as the most prestigious swimming event in the United States. The 2024 Olympic Trials will serve as the sole selection meet for the 2024 U.S. Olympic Swimming Team, which will represent Team USA in the pool competition in Paris, France. While Indianapolis last hosted the swimming Trials in 2000, next year’s event will mark the 100-year anniversary since Indianapolis hosted the Olympic Swimming Trials for the 1924 Olympic Games in Paris.

Three temporary pools, two 50-meter and one 25-meter, will be installed over the field in Lucas Oil Stadium, which is a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose sports and entertainment venue. The Indiana Convention Center, connected to the stadium, will feature USA Swimming’s Toyota Aqua Zone, a can’t-miss fan activation area. The USA Swimming House presented by One America, a vibrant hospitality hub, will also make its anticipated return and USA Swimming and Indiana Sports Corp expect to create a city-wide festival throughout the course of the nine-day event to celebrate the sport of swimming.
