2020 MN Scholastic All-America Team

On September 17, 2020, USA Swimming announced the 2020 Scholastic All-America Team. The team includes 34 swimmers from Minnesota, representing 15 clubs across the LSC. Congratulations to the following members of the 2020 USA Swimming Scholastic All-America Team:


Grade completion requirement – applicant must have completed 9th, 10th 11th or 12th grade

GPA Requirement – minimum 3.5 GPA for the current academic year

A=4, B=3, C=2. If numerical grades are used, the following scale will be used unless the school’s letter grade conversion is given on the transcript: A=90-100; B=80-89; C=70-79. In calculating the GPA no rounding will be used – one decimal place only.

Honors, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and dual credit college level academic courses will earn one half (.5) extra Grade Point. Grades for academic subjects only are calculated – history/social studies, English, mathematics, sciences, foreign languages, computer sciences, visual and performing arts if indicated as academic. A grade lower than a C in an academic subject will mean automatic rejection of the applicant. Grades for non-academic courses will NOT be calculated – art, band, choir, orchestra, health, driver education, physical education, and any other class marked non-academic on a transcript.

There will be no special status designation for a 4.0 GPA other than for a national champion who also has a 4.0 GPA.

Pool Requirements/Qualifying Times

Applicants must have swum an individual pool time equal to a 2019 Winter Junior qualifying time in any individual event during the SAA qualifying period (August 16, 2019 – August 15, 2020) with qualifying times in SWIMS – list of times are posted on the USA Swimming website. A qualifying time will be available for selection from the SWIMS database during the application process. Only ONE time is necessary and only ONE application is necessary.
