Time Standards
Time Standards for Meet Entry
 
  • This sport is all about striving to achieve faster performance times.
  • Time standards can provide goals for swimmers to work toward daily.
  • Striving to "get to the next level" is what our WAVES culture is designed to support.
  • Meet entry qualifying times are called "time standards," or "cuts."
  • Higher level meets have faster cuts.
  • Some meets have SCY cuts, others SCY, LCM, & SCM cuts, some only LCM cuts.
  • High level meets have a 'qualification period' with entry times only since a stated date.
