The American Swimming Coaches Association (ASCA) released its Top 100 Age Group Teams list. This list serves as a precursor to the selection of the Fitter and Faster ASCA Age Group Coach of the Year. Data was collected from May 1 2020 through April 30 2021 using USA Swimming’s Top Times Report for the previous Long Course and Short Course seasons. Swimmers are ranked nationally from 1st through 20th and are scored using a 10-lane pool A and B final format. The age groups included in this ranking are 10 & under and 11-12.
