Time Standards

Time Standards

Each year, USA Swimming establishes time standards, or "cuts" for each of its major meets, from BB or age group meets through Olympic Trials, swimmers are always striving to make their next cut. Swimmers should aim to progress from B Level times to AAAA Level times as they develop.

National Meet Standards

In order to qualify for USA Swimming's National Meets, swimmers must first post a qualifying time during the qualifying period. These time standards or "cuts" are set before the swim season begins.

Age Group Time Standards

Age group time standards are designed to encourage age group swimmers to step their swimming up to the next level. Starting at Level B and going up to Level AAAA times, this is the place to find cuts that will help make you faster.
