San Diego-Imperial Swimming has approved and released its 2015 Junior Olympic Time Standards.  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.  An analysis of which time standards were changed is also available.
