Time/Mark Standard or Cut
Previous  Top  Next

A Time/Mark Standard is simply a set of times and marks that have been established to represent a certain level of competition. For example, an "A" time has a certain value for every age and distance. Sometimes these Time Standards or "cuts" are specified as criteria for entering a meet. For example, an "A Meet" may require that only those athletes who have previously achieved an A time can enter the meet.
