Weekly Non-Point Score Events


Juniors
For our Juniors, 7 years and under swimmers we hold 12m events for kick and freestyle. These events are non-competitive (no points will be calculated) and all swimmers who participate in a min of 12 Club Nights will receive our 'Junior Achiever' trophy at the end of the swimming year. Junior swimmers when ready may also progress to 25m swims and participate in the point score program.

Note: Swimmer’s swimming in Junior events cannot swim longer events on the same Club Night.


Weekly Point Score Competition



Club Night Point Score Swims (Session A and Session B)
The weekly point score competition allows all swimmers of various levels of experience and ability to compete on an equal playing field. Points are awarded for each swim according to the swimmer’s own ability, achieving points by consistent attendance and improvement over the season. The swimmer’s points accumulate over the season with the highest point scorer in each classification winning the point score competition for the season. A swimmer’s age will be determined by their age as of 1st of October (the first day of the year). Swimmers will be graded into four classifications for this competition according to age.

  • 6 years and under = Splashers
  • 7 – 9 years = Juniors
  • 10 – 12 years = Intermediate
  • 13 years and over = Seniors

 

Points will be awarded for the swims in Session A and Session B on Club Nights.

Points will be awarded to the swimmer for their improvement in times as follows:

  • Starting and completing any stroke or distance 1 point
  • First swim attempt at a given distance for any stroke 2 points
  • Swimming 0.51 –2.00 seconds outside of their best time for a stroke and distance 3 points
  • Swimming within 0.50 seconds either side of best time 6 points
