Championships are contested by age, with age being considered the age of swimmer as at the first championship night. These are conducted as official approved meets allowing times achieved to be considered for records. To be eligible for Age Championship points swimmers must have swum in 10 individual events on Friday nights, however all members are encouraged to participate as improvement points continue to be awarded.
Points are awarded for placings in each event and accumulate across the championship series.
- 1st Place – 7 Points
- 2nd Place – 5 Points
- 3rd Place – 3 Points
- 4th Place onwards – 1 Point
- No Swim or disqualification – 0 Points
Trophies are awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd for each age group, with 1st having their name recorded in history on our Championships board located in the Club House.
Note: Unlike our usual Friday Club Nights – Official Referees, Starter and Judges of Stroke are in attendance during championships with NSW Swimming Rules and Regulations in place. Officials will disqualify swimmers for breaches of the rules of swimming (false starts, incorrect strokes). Swimmers 8 years and under are not disqualified.
