Using times from Masters Meets for USA Swimming Purposes

How can I get my times from Masters meets recorded for official purposes by USA Swimming?


Many swimmers ask about using their times from Masters meets for USA Swimming official purposes, such as qualifying for USA Swimming meets.

USMS (the meet director or an official from the LMSC) must request approval from USA Swimming to have the meet observed by USA Swimming for this purpose. This is not routinely done and is normally reserved for championship (LMSC, zone, national) or other large meets. A key requirement is having a sufficient number of USA Swimming certified officials
available (normally a minimum of four officials with at least two designated observers) to judge the events for conformance with USA Swimming rules.

If you think you have a need to record your times for this purpose, check with the meet director well in advance of the meet to ask if the host intends to apply for USA Swimming observation.
