Time Standards

Qualification time standards are set by the various governing bodies that come under the umbrella of USA Swimming. Championship meets require swimmers meet or exceed these standards. TAGS time standards are updated annually at the TSA meeting and are usually posted in October of each year. Swimmers can earn TAGS times in short course yards or long course meters.
