Only entry times from events with distances of 100 meters or more shall be accepted for qualification purposes. If qualified to attend, athletes may swim event distances of 50 meters at the competition.

Athletes who equal or better the posted QT in one or more events are preliminarily qualified for consideration to participate in the Pacific Games, provided that all other qualification and eligibility requirements are met. This includes (but is not limited to), the athlete’s rank & times, technical skill, age, maturity, fitness, residency, citizenship, ethics, and behavior.

Athletes entered in individual events can be used in relays, even if they have not achieved the QT for the corresponding stroke and distance of the relay in which they are entered.

No one has the right or entitlement to participate in the competition. There is also no guarantee of selection. At all times, the final selection of athletes and officials to the team, including event entries, is subject to the discretion of Guam Aquatics, the Guam National Olympic Committee, and/or the relevant organizing committee.

**Qualifying time standards for the Pacific Games, the Micronesian Games, and other GNOC-sanctioned events are guided by the 1991 order of the GNOC Executive Board that qualification to participate shall be minimally based on the times of the third (3rd) place finishers in the “A” finals for each event as achieved during the last edition of the relevant Games, which was the 2023 Solomon Islands. Subject to GNOC’s approval, Guam Aquatics may allow for minimum QTs equal to the time achieved by the last place finisher in the “A” finals for each event, which is typically the 6th or 8th place depending on the competition.
