We really need your submissions to come as screenshots from the USA Swimming Times database. Those screenshots contain the date of the swim, the course and your swimmer's age at the time of the swim. We can't add your swimmer's times to the system without that information.
Thank you to those who have already submitted your information in the requested format.
As we are trying to get our swimmers into the first meets of the season with minimum qualifying times, we are finding that there is a problem with many of the new Makos who transferred from other USA teams. It appears that your USA Swimming times earned in the 2011 - 2012 season are not in our Mako database. While it is possible for you as parents to remind us to update your swimmers' times when you enter meets without minimum qualifying times, for those Championship meets, the system prevents you from selecting events when your swimmer doesn't have a qualifying time.
To solve this problem, we are asking parents of new swimmers, who transferred from another USA team to send our admin a copy of your swimmer's best times from the 2011-2012 season. We will manually create a placeholder meet into which we can enter your swimmer's best time in each event. Please remember that the best time report must be from USA Swimming's Time Search, and that the best times must be for the 2011-2012 period. Times from your swimmers' summer league races are not recognized by USA Swimming
