USA Swimming Revises Entry Time Standards For Santa Clara Pro Series

USA Swimming announced today that they have adjusted the time standard for the Santa Clara stop of the Arena Pro Swim Series so as to provide an opportunity for more swimmers to compete at the elite level. The times have been adjusted so as to reflect the entry time standard for the Speedo Winter Junior Championships. Time standards, entry information, and additional meet information can be found here.

Last year it was announced that the Santa Clara stop would share the weekend of June 3-5 with an additional Arena Pro Swim Series stop in Indianapolis. Indianapolis will also be operating under revised time standards. Time standards for Indianapolis and additional meet information can be found here.

Currently it is unclear as to whether the time standards were lowered so as to allow more swimmers the opportunity to qualify for the U.S. Olympic Trials or if it was due to concern that the dueling Arena Pro stops would result in lowered participation.

    Let’s get serious lowing the time standards has absolutely nothing to do with giving swimmers a chance to make their Olympic trials cuts. The swimmers at those slower cuts have no chance to make those cuts. As a former meet manager for one of the top national facilities, I contend this is all about what it is always all about $$$
