**The National ID Team designation indicates that an athlete has achieved an "on track time" on one of three tiers. These times are extrapolations made by Swim Canada that indicate a swimmer is hitting certain age based benchmarks to qualify, make finals, or medal at the Olympics or World Championships. They will also be on a watch list for possible carding in coming years. Carding is how amateur athletes cover expenses in order to make their dreams a reality.
