Time Standards

USA Swimming's Age Group program is designed to develop swimmers from a young age eventually to Senior Swimming and hopefully from there to the National level.  Time standards are designed to support this development by encouraging age group swimmers to step their swimming up to the next level.  These time standards guide you from just starting out in your age group to reaching your highest potential.  Our LSC standards will take you from the beginning "C" standard all the way to your qualifying standards for the LSC Age Group Championships; and beyond to the LSC Senior Championships.  The Hawaiian Swimming Senior Time Standards are also found below.  Zone, Sectional, Junior & Senior National time standards can be found on different websites: Western Zone Swimming, Pacific Northwest, and USA-Swimming, respectively.

2016-17 Hawaiian Swimming Age Group Standards:

  • Printable Reports: [ scy | scm | lcm(ver. R2 - add AGZ times and correct M13-14 200IM and 400IM AAAA - posted 13-NOV-2016)
  • Age Group Championship Relays: [ pdf ]
  • Team Manager File: [ zip_file ] (right-click to download; un-compress on your computer prior to importing)

* Info: Hawaiian Swimming Age Group Time Standards are reviewed each summer.  Each year a subset of the standards are adjusted progressively faster relative to prior years due too the increased number of athletes participating in the sport and the progression of our championship-level athletes using the following procedure.  Most AAA times (championship meet qualifying times) are set such that an average of 28 athletes per event (per age group and gender) would have qualified for an Age Group Championship meet for each of the last 4 years.  Long distance events are set for an average of 24 athletes per event.  Standards for events with a relatively lower number of participants are set to a similar "quality" level to other events within the same age group.  AA times are 10% slower than AAA times, A times are 10% slower than AA times, B times are 10% slower than A times (except for the 8&U age group where B times are 20% slower than A times), and C times are times that are slower than B times.

2016-17 Hawaiian Senior Program Standards (unchanged from 2015-16):

  • Printable Report: [ pdf ] (ver. R1 initial release - posted 10-SEP-2015)

* Info: Hawaiian Swimming Senior Time Standards are reviewed each summer.  Each year a subset of the standards are adjusted progressively faster relative to prior years due too the increased number of athletes participating in the sport and the progression of our championship-level athletes using the following procedure. The procedure used to set the standards is very similar to the procedure used in prior years.  Most SR-A times are set such that an average of 64 athletes per event (per gender) would have qualified for the Senior Championship meet for each of the last 4 years.  Long distance events are set for an average of 48 athletes per event.  Standards for events with a relatively lower number of participants are set to a similar "quality" level to other events.  SR-B times are 5% slower than SR-A times.
