The Age Group Committee has approved and released the time standards for this July's 14 and Under Championship Meet that will be held on July 15-18, 2021 at Georgia Tech.

There will be a JO session during the 10&unders, but not all events will be offered due to timeline restraints. See updated meet information for available events.

Swimmers are allowed to enter ONE BONUS EVENT per session entered, but cannot exceed the number of events allowed during that session. ie a 13 year old has two state cuts Saturday morning, they can enter one additional "bonus" swim in that session making their total number of events three.  

Teams are allowed to enter TWO RELAYS per event.
