Note: ISI is the Iowa Chapter of USA Swimming. The qualifying times and corresponding age bracket are based on an athlete’s age the day of the meet. For example the ISI Championship meet is held Feb. 21-23, 2014, so use your child’s age on that date when looking at applicable qualifying times. All athletes must be USA members to participate in this meet (and other USA swim meets).

Meanwhile, Midwest Regionals is held at the University of Minnesota’s Aquatic Center each spring and open to all club swimmers who can qualify. The age cut-off for events is 12/1/13, so when reviewing the qualification times, be sure to use the proper age-bracket for your child’s age on December 1st.
