Time Standards for 2021

Information regarding J.O.s

  • This will be A ONE TIME / ONE YEAR suspension of our typical JO format
  • County/district approval for a max of 400 swimmers per session.
    • AM session:  11&O preliminary heats / 10&Un timed finals
    • PM session:  11-18 finals
  • THE USA Swimming "B" standard will be the JO standard for all registered CCS swimmers.
    • All CCS swimmers with at least one B cut will be allowed a maximum of 2 swims that do not meet that standard (only applies to events 100m or shorter).
  • All swimmers from outside CCS will adhere to the 2020 CCS JO standard + no bonus.
  • Maximum individual entries set at SEVEN (7) for the meet.  Maximum relay entries at FIVE (5) for the meet. 
  • CCS teams will have a "protected deadline,” 1 week before the final meet entry deadline.  CCS protected deadline is Monday, July 12, 2021.  Final meet entry deadline is Monday, July 19. 
    • Once 1 swimmer has been allowed into the meet, the whole team is allowed into the meet. 
    • Outside teams/swimmers will be accepted on a first come/first serve basis, beginning on Monday, July 19 at 12:01am.
  • Tentatively, this meet will currently be limited to only IN STATE swimmers.
  • Relays will be offered in the AM only, as follows:  10&U, 12&U, 14&U, and 18&U
  • There will be no time "cap" for 15&O events, this year…meaning there will be no “ceiling” standard that would disqualify a swimmer from the meet for reaching a time that would be considered inappropriately fast.
  • We will continue with the following finals heat structure:
    • A/B final for 11-12 events under 800m
    • A/B final for 13-14 events under 800m
    • A final only for 15-18 events under 800m
    • All events over 800m will be timed final.
  • Swimmers over 18 can swim in the meet in the preliminaries only, as exhibition swimmers.  Swimmers over 18 are not allowed to swim on relays or qualify to swim in finals.
