There are two spots in each individual event (1 m, 3 m, and 10 m) and one team spot for each synchronized event (3 m and 10 m) that American divers are eligible for. The first selection for men's and women's 3 m and 10 m events was the 2011 USA Diving Winter National Championships, where the four divers with the top cumulative score moved onto the second selection event, the 2011 Fina USA Diving Grand Prix. At the 2011 Fina USA Diving Grand Prix, the top two divers with the highest cumulative score are selected to represent the United States.

The selection for synchronized events and the men's and women's 1 m springboard took place in May.

In all, there will be 14 divers (6 men & 8 females).[33] The divers who are going to the 2011 Fina USA Diving Grand Prix, and are eligible to be selected to represent the United States is as follows:

Swimming pictogram.svg Open water swimming[edit]

In the men's and women's 25 km race, both held on July 23, USA Swimming recommended its athletes not compete due to "extreme temperature conditions." USA swimming said the water temperature exceeded its recommended limit and as a result, Alex Meyer and Haley Anderson withdrew from the race. However, Claire Thompson elected to stay in the race and was afforded the opportunity because of the Amateur Sports Act, which guarantees athletes the right to compete. But USA Swimming said they would monitor her closely. Thompson did not complete the race.
