Times achieved at an altitude of 3,000 feet or more may be adjusted
as provided in Section 207.11.5 of the USS Rules and Regulations for
the purpose of entering higher level meets.
Below is the complete text of
Section 207.11.5 from the 2005 USA Swimming Rules and
Regulations. The topic of this section is the adjustment of
achieved times to be used as entry times for national championship
Times achieved at an altitude of 3,000 feet or more may be adjusted as follows:
|400 or 500
|800 free relay
|800 or 1000
|1500 or 1650
Subtract the time indicated above from the actual time achieved at
altitude. This is the time to be used on the entry form and seeding
will be based on that time. Information relative to the adjustment
accompanying the entry form must include name of swimmer, event, date
of performance, elevation location, actual time, corrected time, and
signature of coach.
A swimmer or relay may use the above adjustments to meet the national
qualifying time standard and seeding will be based upon that time.
