Club Championships 2020/2021 will be announced after the start of the 20/21 season.
RULES AND ELIGIBILITY CONDITIONS:
When you nominate, you will automatically be placed in the strokes (Free/Back/Breast/Fly) and distances (25m/50m) allocated to age on the day of championships.
|6 & under||25m||25m||25m||25m||100m|
Open Events are nominated for separately. Usual Qualifying Times for IM and Open Events, as stated on the Club Night page, apply.
For 25m + events, no rule tolerances apply. A one start rule applies. All events are swum as heats only, with places based on the judge’s adjudication and the judge’s decision is final. For 12.5m events, there will be rule tolerance - this means it is not necessary for these swimmers to be technically correct, but they must start in a fair manner. 12.5m swimmers must hang on to the bar and not leave the wall until the start gun sounds.
First, second and third places will be awarded for each competitive age group, stroke and distance category. In each age-competitive event, competitors can accrue points towards age champion according to their place. Swimmers in Open and 12.5m events can accrue points toward Open Champion and Age Champion.
Points are awarded as follows:
Age Champion medals and certificates for swimmers who break club and championship records will be awarded on Trophy Night. Age Champions are awarded to the boy and girl swimmer gaining the most points across all events in their age group. The age group events are 25m or 50m in each of the four strokes (free, back, breast and fly) and either the 100m or 200m medley.
