Club Point Score
A point score is run on club nights with 1 point being allocated for each event entered up to a maximum of 3 events and 1 point being allocated for PB for a club swim. Our Summer and Winter seasons are combined for the point score and awards are made at Presentation Day held at the end of September each year.
Senior point score: Perpetual Trophy for 13/over for both male and female.
Junior point score: Medals for the 10 highest points scorers – 12/under all ages combined for both male and female.

Club Championships are held once a year, generally late July/early August and prior to the State Age Winter Championships.
Eligibility for Club Championships is based on being a fully paid, 1st claim member who has participated in a minimum number of six (6) Friday evening Club races. State and SMNE Area carnivals can be substituted for some Club races, however three (3) Friday evening Club races must be included in these to make up the minimum number of six.
Entries for Club Championships are on official entry multi cards and are to be submitted to the Race Secretary on the date elected by him/her. The program will be emailed and posted on this site.
Age Champions are decided from the Club Championships and these are worked out on a point’s basis. For Club Championships the points are calculated as follows:
1st Place: 8 points
2nd place: 6 points
3rd place: 4 points

5th place: 2 points
6th place: 1 point
Open events are not included in the age champion point score however, are calculated on a separate point’s basis. Any swimmer is eligible to enter the Open events, provided they have reached the nominated qualifying time.
