have 3 clearly delineated time achievement levels at TTST.
This helps swimmers know what they have achieved. It
puts meaning on the various Time standards out in USA Swimming and
emphises long term commitment to swimming by highlighting Senior
Swimming progression times. Finally it should help parents
and swimmers know what upcoming championship meets on our event
calendar a swimmer will likely be qualified for. The 3
levels are: TTST Age Group All-Stars
Level, TTST Senior Level, and
TTST National Level.
TTST AGE GROUP ALL-STARS
Novice and beginning Regional swimmers of TTST
will be looking toward getting their first
Sierra Nevada Swimming Junior Olympics Time standard.
Once a JO time is acquired all active TTST swimmers with this
achievement or a faster time up to just short of the Sierra
Nevada JR+Senior Time will hold the title of TTST Age Group
TTST Age Group All-Stars will be looking to make
their first of 3 Senior Times:
