    Our results page ranks swimmers based on their best time in the meet, regardless of whether it was achieved in prelims, finals, or lead-off times in relays. We use standard age groups to separate the meet results, such as 8 & under, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16, and 17-18, which may not always align with the specific age groupings used by the meet organizers.

    The Scholastic All-America (SAA) program, managed by USA Swimming, recognizes high school swimmers for their academic and athletic achievements. To qualify for this honor, swimmers must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.5 and achieve specific qualifying times in their swimming events during the designated period.

    Key Requirements: Academic Criteria: Applicants must have completed grades 9-12 with a minimum 3.5 GPA. Honors and advanced courses are weighted to reflect their difficulty. Swimming Criteria: Swimmers must have achieved a time equal to or faster than the Winter Junior National qualifying time in any individual event during the SAA qualifying period (Sep 1,2023-Aug 31, 2024, dates inclusive) with the qualifying times in SWIMS.. For swimmers with disabilities, specific Para Scholastic All-American Standards apply. Open Water Criteria: Swimmers must achieve qualifying times in distance freestyle events and participate in the Open Water National Championships. Application Process: Application Window: Opens June 1 and closes September 6 each year. Documents Required: A complete transcript for the academic year and proof of membership in good standing with USA Swimming at the time of the swim and application.

    Athletes meeting these criteria receive a commemorative bag tag and certificate, with additional recognition for those achieving perfect scores (national champions with a 4.0 GPA) and seniors with multiple years on the list.
