Greensboro To Host 2020 USA Diving Winter Nationals In December

The 2020 USA Diving Winter Nationals will run from December 15-20 at the Greensboro Aquatics Complex in Greensboro, N.C.

USA Diving made the announcement in late August.

“We are excited to return to national competition this December in Greensboro,” said USA Diving High Performance Director Dan Laak. “The Aquatics Complex is a world-class facility and we cannot wait to showcase our nation’s best divers as they compete for a National title and a chance to represent Team USA at the FINA World Cup.”

The event will host close to 150 of the country’s top divers, with 10 national titles on the line, along with selection for the 2021 FINA World Cup. The World Cup will then act as the final opportunity to qualify quota spots for the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

While hosting well over 100 athletes safely may prove to be difficult during the coronavirus pandemic, the American Athletic Union (AAU) managed to successfully host 200 divers at their championships in August, albeit at an outdoor pool.

Greensboro also hosted this event in 2012 and 2017. Last year’s Winter Nationals were held in Minneapolis.

“The Greensboro Aquatic Center is thrilled to have the opportunity to host the 2020 USA Diving Winter National Championships,” said GAC manager Susan Braman. “We have been fortunate to host numerous USA Diving championships in recent years and we’re excited to welcome them back to Greensboro for this elite competition.”
