This set of reports is based upon the meet results that have been entered or imported for the swimmers in your Database. To print or preview a report of Top or Best Times, click on Reports from the Main Menu Bar and then Performance and Top Times.
This report offers a great deal of customization filters and sort options as described below.
This report offers the standard Age Group, Gender, Team, Team Division, Group, Subgroup, WM Group, WM Subgroup, and School Year filters as well as the LSC and Team Division filters and the following specific report filters.
When sorting this report by Event, the gender filter also allows you to combine Men/Women to be ranked together for each stroke/distance.
You can run this report for all meets or you can filter it for just one meet by selecting that meet from the Meet list box. You can also restrict the list of meets by Date Range (Since and/or Until Dates) and by Meet Type as described below. You can set up these "Seasonal" Dates in Favorite Filters.
Age Group Tab
If you are sorting this report by event, you can choose how TM will group the swimmers in your Database according to age. Click on the Age Group tab and then Use Built-in if you want TM to group times by 10&U, 11-12, 13-14, and 15&O.

Choose to display no splits, Cumulative or "running" splits, Subtractive or "lap" splits, Cum/Subt for both, Legal splits, or Stroke Rate. For example in a 400 for a LCM event, the 50, 100, 200, and 400 would be "legal" splits. Click Here for more information on how to enter Splits or Stroke Rate information.

Click on the Chronological check box on the Date Tab after you have selected a Since Date and/or an Until Date for your report. TM will list Best Times sorted chronologically instead of fastest-to-slowest. If you run this report early in your season before swimmers have improved from last season, you might want to click on the "Include Life Time Best even if outside date range" button so each swimmer can see where they were prior to the beginning of the current season.
You must first specify the report to be sorted Chronologically as discussed in the section above in order to enable the Improvement check boxes. Now click on the Improvement tab and customize how you wish to have improvement calculated.
You can show improvement in terms of the time improved or in terms of the percent improvement. TM offers three ways to calculate Improvement:
Specify a Time Standard then click on the Include Time Standards check box and TM will tag each result with the appropriate Time Standard designator. For example, 2:34.56 AA. Or click on the Standards at Least check box and TM will only include those times at that time Standard or higher. Choose Show All with delta if below Standard and TM will compute the delta time necessary to achieve that standard.
Click on the Records tab and select a specific Record and click on Check Records and TM will indicate if any of the Records have been broken by displaying REC next to each time. Click Here for more specific information on records that may have been broken and how to automatically update those records using the Record Match Report. Or, click on the Check All Records check box and TM will check all the records that have been set up with an Identifying Flag. Click Here for information on how to set up a record Identifying Flag.
Click on the Points tab and then choose one of the special point systems - HY-TEK Age Group Points (Yards, SC and LC Meters), HY-TEK Single Year (Yards, SC and LC Meters), HY-TEK Open Points (Yards, SC and LC Meters), NISCA Points (High School Yard meets), LEN Points (SC and LC Meters), AUS Points (Swimming Australia - LC Meters), SNZ Points (Swimming New Zealand - LC Meters), or FINA Points (SC and LC Meters). These points will be displayed next to each result time.
NOTE: When converted times are specified, the non-converted time is used for the Point System. For example, if FINA is selected with a course of LL (convert to LC Meters) and the original time is in SC Meters, then the SC Meter FINA computation is used. In this example, if a Yard time is converted to LC Meters, then TM with display "n/a" (not applicable) next to the time.
This report can be sorted by:
Format of Displayed Times
When TM displays or prints the Top Times report, a letter suffix will be added after the time to indicate a Legal Split time (S) that has been stored in the database, a Relay Lead-off time (L), or a Relay Non Lead-off time (N). For example, a 1:23.45 L would indicate a time that was achieved as the lead-off swimmer on a Relay.
1, 2, or 3 Column Format
