									                        2010 All Star Selection Process

All Star selection is based on swimmers’ seasonal best times rather than swimmers’ ranking like
the process that is used for Western Zone selection. Swimmers who have achieved the “AAAA”
NAG times in the events that will be swam at the 2010 All Star meet will receive the first
priority in being selected to the team. Swimmers who have achieved “AAA” NAG times in the
events that will be swam at the 2010 All Star meet will receive second priority, and “AA” NAG
swimmers in the events that will be swam at the 2010 All Star meet will receive third priority
when selecting the team. Finally to insure a minimum of eight swimmers in each age group and
gender for these age groups, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, swimmers with minimum “A” times will be


To be eligible for selection to the SNS All Star Team, a swimmer must be registered to SNS in
good standing. This means that the swimmer must not owe money to SNS, and must not have
been restricted from representing SNS because of past disciplinary problems. Swimmers, who
owe money to SNS, may clear the debt and be considered for the All Star Team by paying the
money owed before the end of the qualifying period.

Swimmers must have achieved a minimum of two Short-Course USAS “A” times to submit a
letter of intent.


Selection will be based on verified short-course performances achieved during the qualifying
period in individual events swum in the current season. Swims performed outside the LSC must
be posted on the swim Connection website prior to Tuesday December 22, 2010, following any
USA Sanctioned Swim Meets in order to be considered. The qualifying period is from August
2009 to December 2009.

Participation on the SNS All Star team is based on the swimmer’s age on the first day of the All
Star meet. If the swimmer will be in an older age group at the All Star Meet than when they
swam the qualifying times, they will be considered for the All Star team in the older age group.
