Pac Swim meet schedules and meet sheets - Check here for detailed information on upcoming meets.

Time Standards (B, A, JO, etc. times for each age group) - Check these time lists for meets that don't allow NT ("no time") entries, or to see how close your swimmer is to the next time standard.

Officiating at meets - every team needs to provide officials at meets.  If you're interested in training to help out in this way, talk to a Parent Board member.  We ALWAYS need new officials!
