National Motivational Time Standards

USA Swimming 2021-2024 Motivational Time Standards

From: General Chair Rick Lewis on behalf of the Connecticut Swimming Board of Directors
To: Connecticut Swimming Athletes

With the Team Sports on Pause lifted by Governor Lamont, we welcome you back to the pool!

Every 4 years following an Olympic year, USA Swimming updates its motivational time standards for age group swimmers. The purpose of these time standards is to encourage swimmers to set goals and progress through the B, BB, A, AA, AAA, and AAAA categories. The times standards are in SCY and LCM for 10 & under, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16, and 17-18 age groups.

At its January 19 meeting, the Connecticut Swimming (CSI) Board of Directors approved the purchase of a 2021-2024 motivational bag tag for each swimmer aged 18 and younger. The tags will have your age group with SCY time standards on one side and LCM times on the flip side. It is the hope of the Board of Directors that the bag tag will motivate you to set goals and track your progress.

The details:

  • Each tag comes with a clear plastic loop for easy attachment.

The bag tags will be purchased by CSI through Bag Tags, Inc, the official supplier of CSI and USA Swimming bag tags and will be shipped to your USA Swimming club coaches in the next 2-3 weeks. Look for updates on Instagram and Facebook or check with your coach. Once again, welcome back to the pool and we look forward to the time when we can all be back 100%.
