Time Standards

PTAC Swimmers can check here for links and information on different time standards and meets!

USA Swimming Motivational Time Standards
The USA swimming time standards are a much more accurate way to track your progress than using the NJ Swimming GOLD / SILVER / BRONZE times.  The times correspond approximately as follows:
AAAA times are a 98 percentile rank swim
AAA times are 95%
AA times are 92%
A times are 85%
BB times are 65%
B times are 45%

NJ Swimming Winter Short Course Time Standards
NJ Swimming Summer Long Course Time Standards
These time standards are used to enter specific NJ Swimming Championship meets.  There are significant differences in the difficulty to archive certain cuts at each age group and distance based on how large the championship meets are how many swimmers in New Jersey compete in the event.  They are not an accurate way to measure progress - instead swimmers should use the USA swimming motivational times.
