The United States qualified the men’s and women’s teams for the Winter Olympics based on their results at the 2021 World Championships. United – went undefeated in an Olympic qualifying tournament and also secured the United States a spot in mixed doubles.

Olympic trials were held in Omaha, Nebraska in November to determine the men’s and women’s teams that will compete in the Games. The men’s team led by John Shuster, who won gold at PyeongChang 2018, will once again represent Team USA. Chris Plys is the only member of the current team who has not competed in the last Olympics. The women’s team will also look like it did four years ago, although Tabitha Peterson has taken over from Nina Roth as skip and Tabatha’s sister Tara is a new signing.
