TTST GROUP AND TRAINING TIMES REMINDER INFORMATION
At TTST we aim to offer a place where swimmers can grow socially and athletically in the sport of swimming.
TTST Placement Process for Determining Groupings:
- Coach Observed Skill Observations
- Meet Standards (if there is meet experience): Junior Olympics, Age Group Western Zones, Far Westerns, SR JR+ Limits, SR Western Zones, CA/NV Sectionals, and Speedo Jr Nationals or USA Nationals are major grouping benchmark meets.
- USA Motivational Age Group Standards: BB, A, AA, AAA, AAAA Times.
Coach observations are the most important of these. If you are returning to the team and want to know your group, please ask Cyrus.
