The USA Swim Team is looking to bring the strongest group possible to the 2016 Rio Olympics. So rather than handpick the best talent and be done with it, Team USA is throwing their candidates into the pool to see who comes out on top. Since there are multiple different events within swimming, Team USA is spreading out the Olympic trials over a period of five days. These swimmers are competing in multiple events, so it’s important to give their bodies adequate time to rest.

So what do the US Swim trials mean for fans? Well for one, it means that leading up to the Olympics you’ll get to watch a lot of swimming. It also means that fan favorites like Ryan Lochte aren’t a lock to make the team. In fact, Lochte probably won’t make the team at all since he’s currently dealing with a groin injury that’s seriously hindered his ability to kick.

But enough bad news, let’s take a look at the USA Swim Team Olympic Trials Schedule. For the most part, the qualifying heats for the various events will begin live at 11 AM EST and continue through the afternoon. If you’re not able to watch the qualifying heats live, you can watch the replays live later in the evening. All of the trials will be available to watch on NBC Sports or NBC.
