The 2022 Canadian Swimming Trials begin on Tuesday, April 5th in Victoria on the country’s west coast.

That means the 9:30 AM/6:00 PM local schedule will begin 12:30PM/9:00PM Eastern time, which is the home time zone for many of the country’s top swimmers.

No spectators or time trials are being allowed at this year’s meet. That means that everyone will be left to watch online.

Commonwealth Games Selection Priorities

Priority 1:

At the end of the Trials, all ‘A’ standard swims will be combined and inserted into the FINA World Rankings as they stood at December 231, 2021. Swimmers will be nominated in order to a maximum of 1 swimmer per event, up to 12 total, and a maximum of 8 swimmers per gender, based on their ranking

Priority 2:

High Performance Director nominates swimmers to relay events up to the maximum team size of 23 swimmers (inclusive of those nominated in Priority 1)

Priority 3:

In all remaining individual events, swimmers with Swimming Canada Commonwealth Games ‘B’ Time Standards will be listed in rank order based on their placement in the 2021 FINA World Rankings. Swimmers will then be chosen up to the team size of 23.

Priority 4:

If any slots are remaining (which is unlikely), the High Performance Director will nominate athletes at his discretion up to the team size of 23 swimmers.
