Motivational Time Standards
Motivational time standards are set by USA Swimming and designed to encourage age group swimmers to step their swimming up to the next level. Time standards are also sometimes used to group swimmers of similar ability for different swim meets. Time standards guide you from just starting out in your age group to reaching your highest potential. Start at Level B and work your way up to AAAA times. Once you have attended your first meet your times will automatically be recorded in the USA Swimming "SWIMS" database and you will see the motivational standard letter listed next to your results.
