Sometimes swim meets will have qualifying time standards that your swimmer has to have to be able to enter in that event.  Most of the time the host team will include these filters in the event file that they send to teams that will attend.  This is helpful to swimmers, coaches, and parents because we will be able to easily see which events are acceptable to sign up for (time is in black color) and events that we should not sign up for (times in red).  There are times where bonus swims are allowed and in this case swimmers may sign up for the red events.  You can find out these details in the meet info.  

Alot of meets use the USA Swimming Motivational Times Standard as a way to make it easier for everyone to know how fast swimmers must be to enter into that meet.
