San Diego-Imperial Swimming has released the final draft of the Junior Olympic Time Standards for the 2013 competition year.  Junior Olympic time standards are set locally here in San Diego and are recomputed annually to select approximately the 24 fastest swimmers in each event based upon the average results for the event over the past 3 – 5 years.  These time standards can, and often do, change by small amounts from year to year in order to keep up with advances (and sometimes declines) in the various age/gender groups.  Note: These time standards have not yet been approved by the SI Swimming Board of Directors, and will be voted upon at the upcoming Board meeting in November.  However, it is unlikely they will change unless an administrative or computational error is discovered.

    Western Zone Age group meet this year (2013) is a 14&under meet with 400IM and 200s for 11-12 age group. Are we going to follow their format and introduce those events for JOs? It would be beneficial for the kids to swim those events at JOs before swimming them at Zone. We could even do the same and have them timed Finals.
