Time Standards (Last Updated Oct 2, 2023)

Time Standards represent the minimum or maximum time a swimmer must have previously swam the event to qualify.

  • A “State” qualifying time is A or faster (AZ Standards)
  • A “Regional” qualifying time is B or faster, but slower than A (AZ Standards)

The swim meet announcement (meet flyer) will the document time standard requirements in the “Eligibility” section.  Most swim meets the Stingrays host or attend are open to all swimmers.
