Club Pointscore

The yearly pointscores are held for male and female swimmers in the various Age divisions. Points are awarded for each club swim (including Club Championship or Special Events) based on the competitor’s individual times. The emphasis is on individual improvement.

Points may be earned for any of the following events (where the swimmer is qualified);

  1. Freestyle (FS) – 20m, 30m, 50m, 100m, 200m & 400m
  2. Breaststroke (BR) – 20m, 30m, 50m, 100m & 200m
  3. Backstroke (BK) – 20m, 30m, 50m, 100m & 200m
  4. Butterfly (BF) – 20m, 30m, 50m, 100m & 200m
  5. Medley (Med) – 200m & 400m.

There is no restriction on what events is swum to earn points on the basis that the swimmer:

  1. has qualified for the event;
  2. has not swum more than the maximum number of races for the day;
  3. if an event is swum more than once only the fastest time may gain points;
  4. only two swims will be counted where the distance is 100m or greater;
  5. only one 200m or 400m is counted each week;

The maximum number of races that will earn points for a swimmer is four(4) each meeting (excluding the relays). The number of races may be reduced at the discretion of the Race Secretary depending on the number of competitors and time availability.
