SCS Senior Time Standards 

Beginning in 2022 SCS is implementing new 3 tier Senior Time Standards that will be used in almost all SCS Senior Meets.

These time standards are tied into the USA Motivational Time standards and are set until 2024.  Bonus times are up to the meets to determine. 
 
Tier 3:
Tier 3 are 15-16 BB Motivational Times.  These times are slower than the Senior Development Time Standards.  The intent of these times is to bring more Age Group swimmers into the ranks of Senior meets.  They are supposed to encourage Geo-Committee level senior meets.  Some of the (new) planned Tier 3 Senior Meets are:
  • Jan 15-16 - Senior Development (North/South) Meet - 2 day SCY T/F
  • Feb 13-14 - Senior Development (North/South) Meet - 2 day SCY T/F
  • Mar 19-20 - Senior Development (North/South) Meet - 2 day SCY T/F
  • Sep 17-18 - Senior TT (Timed Trial) -
  • Oct 8-9 -      Senior TT
  • Nov 19-20   Senior TT
Tier 2:
Tier 2 are 15-16 AA Motivational Times.  These times are faster than the Senior Development Time Standards.  (I think) these meets are being planned for Tier 2
  • Apr 16-17  Senior - 2 1/2 days LCM P/F
  • July 28-31 - Senior Regional Champs - 3 1/2 days LCM P/F
Tier 1:
Tier 1 are 15-16 AAAA Motivational Times.  These times are at the Futures, Jr. National Level.  These meets are being called the 'Senior Elite' meets.  Kevin Perry just became a Tier 1 meet.  No more senior entry.level.   The 5 SCS meets in Tier 1 are:  LAI,  Grand Challenge, SMOC, Kevin Perry, and SoCal Invite.
 

Futures, Junior National, Opens, Pro-Series 

Sectionals are sanctioned at the Zone level.  There are 3 different sectional meets, each with different time standards.  SCS goes to the CA/NV Sectionals. Time standards for these meets are determined by the host site and usually published with the meet sheet.
