Bag Tags Releases Updated USA Swimming Time Standard Cards

 Bag Tags has produced a new version of the USA Swimming time standard tags, which serve as a quick reference tool for swimmers setting goals.

EVANSTON, IL Bag Tags, Inc. has released updated USA Swimming time standard tags in the wake of the 2016 Summer Olympics. The tags serve as a quick reference guide for swimmers setting goals and tracking their progress according to the time standards set by USA Swimming, the national governing body for the sport of swimming in the U.S. and the organization in charge of selecting and training teams for international competition.

There are 10 versions of the cards overall for boys and girls in five different age groups: 10 and under, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16, and 17-18. Bag Tags is the exclusive provider of this product for USA Swimming as part of an ongoing relationship between the two organizations. This is the fifth update that Bag Tags has carried out for the time standard cards, which the company revises every four years when USA Swimming issues new time standards.

“USA Swimming benefits from the relationship by being provided with top-notch products at a great price,” said Tom Doyle, director of operations for Bag Tags. “We get to work with a tremendous organization that we value greatly. We have a family business, and most of my siblings swam growing up. USA Swimming was one of our first clients, and working with them is an amazing opportunity that we've never taken for granted.”

In addition to updating the standards on the tags, Bag Tags also gives them a new look. The latest design features the USA Swimming logo on one side and a wave pattern on the other.

The time standard tags are the first product developed by Bag Tags, which also provides event credentials and custom lanyards for USA Swimming through Event Passes and Woven Lanyards (companies in the Bag Tags family).

Bag Tags Inc. offers 48 hour turnaround in supplying high-quality bag tags to various organizations including US Youth Soccer and US Soccer Federation in addition to USA Swimming.
