Time Standards

Athletes can always check their official USA Swimming times & power points by using the national SWIMS database or by logging into their personal account on the USA Swimming websiteResults in this database come from meets that are officially sanctioned, approved or observed by USA Swimming officials. Most middle school and high school meets are not officially sanctioned, approved, or observed. However, Michigan Swimming does allow any high school time to be used to qualify for Michigan Junior Olympics, State Championships and Sectional meets as long as official meet results can be provided as proof of time. Please check with your coaches if you have questions.
