Motivational Times are time
standards determined by USA Swimming. A copy of the most
recent standards is included in the DOCUMENTS Tab on the website.
Also, each swimmer can compare his/her time with these standards
under MY MEET RESULTS (on the left hand side). These time
standards range from B, BB, A, AA, AAA, AAAA. Top 16 Times in the
country are usually faster than AAAA Times. All-Star Swim Meet in
January requires an A Time, plus the swimmer must be in the top 5
in the Midwesterns Region. Zones Meet requires a AAA Time. Zones
usually takes place the first week of August.
