The Greensboro Aquatic Center (GAC) just celebrated its 10th anniversary. And, with events like the 2021 U.S. Paralympics Swimming National Championship on its calendar it is clear to see the impact the venue is making in Greensboro, and the swimming community.

Since its grand opening in 2011, the GAC has emerged as one of the top aquatic facilities in the nation. The facility that features cutting-edge design has hosted major swimming events including Olympic Synchronized Swimming Trials, NCAA Division I National Championships and USA Swimming Winter National Championships.

Now, it will play host to many of the nation’s top Paralympic swimmers. The first major U.S. Paralympics Swimming competition post-Tokyo – will be hosted at the GAC in Greensboro December 17-19, 2021. The event will be live streamed.

“As we head into the Tokyo Paralympics, we are also so excited to look to the future of U.S. Para Swimming,” Erin Popovich, director of U.S. Paralympics Swimming, said. “This competition and this partnership with GAC is a huge part of that as we look to Paris 2024 and beyond.”

She continued, “This event will be the first post-Games look at many of our Paralympians returning from Tokyo,” Popovich said. “But it will also showcase the future of our sport, those athletes who will represent our country in the years to come.”
