About All-America Swimming

In order for a swimmer to be considered as a NISCA High School All-American he/she must compete for an interscholastic team and be scholastically eligible as determined by his/her state athletic association or school authority. All swimmers must be in at least the 9th grade level of school to be eligible. Swimmers are limited to 8 consecutive semesters of eligibility. Fifth year seniors, 7th and 8th grade students are not eligible for consideration.

All times submitted must be achieved in a regularly scheduled interscholastic meet (no time trials) and will include times achieved up to and including State Meet Performances.

All times must be submitted to the one-hundredth of a second. Meet times MUST include documentation (copy of or link to official meet results) as well as the signatures of the Meet Manager and Meet Referee for Dual Meets. NO MANUAL TIMES ACCEPTED. Automatic timing ONLY!

A swimmer may be listed in as many events as his/her times qualify.

Relay teams are limited to FOUR swimmers. Only ONE TEAM PER SCHOOL.

Each year, an “All America” time will be determined and published. Upon receipt of the accepted application blank, the swimmer may be announced as an All-America if they have achieved the published time.

The fastest one hundred (100) ATHLETES as determined by time in each event will be named All-America
