Swim BC Time Standards
Swim BC Time Standards are based on results and rankings of BC swimmers, and are derived from a formula agreed upon by Swim BC's Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) and the BC Swim Coaches Association. The Swim BC Time Standards and age groupings can change from year to year.
Swimming Canada Standards
Swimming Canada also reviews time standards each year, and some years significant changes are made to not only the times, but also the qualification for some of the SNC designated meets.
New standards are a reflection of the improvements in the depth of Canadian swimming that has occurred since the previous standards were set; therefore, a big congratulations needs to go out to the swimmers and coaches on their hard work and improvements that we are seeing in the sport.
