Time Conversions

If you'd like a way to compare your long course meter (LCM) swims with those swum in short course yards (SCY), Swimming World has a conversion tool you might want to try.

No conversion system is 100% accurate, but this one's pretty good. Link is below.


A girl who swam the 100 backstroke in 1:24.51 (LCM) would enter that information and see that it converts to 1:12.09 (SCY).

Time Trials

Special thanks to our helpers at Friday night's Time Trials.

Getting our Novice and Bronze swimmers a little extra "meet" experience was very important and we couldn't have done it without plenty of help.

Christy Tisdall was our starter and Rob Ingle was the head timer.

Thanks to all the club and high school swimmers who took care of the timing for us.

Finally, thanks to our coaches! Carlos Salazar, Christine Porter, and Kristi McClure planned and ran the meet for us.

Once results are ready, we'll get them posted. Since this wasn't an "official" meet, we won't be using these times for entry purposes in sanctioned meets.
