Age Group Zones

Each LSC belongs to a Zone. There are 4 Zones: Eastern, Central, Southern, and Western. At Zones swim meets, swimmers get to represent their LSC and compete against teams from other LSCs that belong to the same zone. LSC teams can be comprised of up to 48 men and 48 women. The selection process for swimmers varies by LSC and is meant to encourage a higher level of competition for age group swimmers. Normally most Age Group Zone Meets are 14 and under – some include 10 and unders and some don’t. The selection process for zones varies by LSC. Some LSCs use time cuts; others use a combination of power points and time standards.
