After a time standards update after Knoxville last season due to low attendance, this season’s cuts have met in the middle. To give context, the 2019 Knoxville cuts released were the fastest standards of the series’ history. These historically fast standards played a contributing factor to the opening meet’s low attendance.

As a result, the cuts for the remainder of the 2019 season were made slower as part of a USA Swimming plan to attract more attendees.

Below is a comparison of last season’s initial set of cuts and the time standards for this season. With the very lenient revisions made to the 2019 cuts after Knoxville, this year’s cuts reflect a more reasonable qualification standard.

Just a formatting, but the first set of time standards has men on the right, women on the left, the second set of time standards has it the opposite, men on the left, women on the right.

Why is this written like PSS cuts are their own thing? They always map to a major meets set of cuts. The Knoxville cuts were exactly last years Summer Juniors cuts and the Greensboro cuts are exactly the Winter Juniors cuts. These cuts got faster than last year because Winter Juniors got faster. Much less interesting.
