South Texas Swimming Records

PLEASE NOTE: The South Texas Swimming records have not been updated since August 10, 2022 due to issues with generating records using the new SWIMS 3.0 database. Like all other LSCs, we are working with USA Swimming to merge records from the legacy records (pre-SWIMS 2.0) and the old SWIMS 2.0 database. Once all errors have been identified and corrected and all records have been verified, we will catch up our records for the past two years and resume posting monthly updates. Thank you for your patience while we work through these corrections and updates.


South Texas Swimming Records
Last updated Aug 10, 2022


STSI records will be compiled and maintained to recognize the best performances achieved by STSI athletes in Sanctioned, Observed, or Approved short and long-course events. The official South Texas Swimming Record is the best time recorded in an approved event and recognized age group by a swimmer who is a registered member of South Texas Swimming at the time of the record. The time must be in a USA Swimming Sanctioned, Approved, or Observed meet or a recognized National or International swimming competition.

For a time to be considered, it must be loaded into SWIMS.

  • All USA and FINA Swimming meets will be evaluated for record purposes.

  • Times made in High School and YMCA Meets that have been pre-approved by South Texas Swimming, Inc. (e.g., District, Regional, and State meets) and are staffed by USA Swimming officials and/or observed by a USA Swimming official(s) may be considered for South Texas records.

  • Records will be kept in short course yards, short course meters, and long course meters.

  • Times made in the Senior or Open Division may apply to the appropriate age group record for a competitor. Meet results must indicate the age of all swimmers competing in the Senior or Open Division to receive proper age group consideration.

  • Anyone with credible evidence indicating a record is incorrect should forward that evidence to the Records Coordinator for evaluation.

  • Records for South Texas Swimming will be updated on or about the first of every month. Records for traditional distances in long course meters and short course yards have been kept for at least 20 years. Records for non-traditional distances (10 and under 200 fly, 15-16 100 IM, etc.) and short course meters were established based on the times in the SWIMS database.
