The Points System

THE POINTS SYSTEM

From the first swim of the season, points will be allotted on the times swum by each member against his or her best time. The scale for points allotted is set out below.  Grading for different distances will apply for all stroked on times, and not just FREESTYLE times.  All events will be mixed i.e. girls and boys together and each heat will consist of up to 8 swimmers whose times are closest.  All events will be on a handicap basis and swimmers will be handicapped in accordance with their best recorded times.

On a Club night if a swimmer does not do the stroke correctly or start and finish properly, there will be no time recorded on the time sheet displayed. The referee will speak to the swimmer about the reason this happened.  In turn the swimmer may speak to their coach so that help can be given to correct the problem.  The swimmer will still be given one point toward their points total.  (Please speak to the President if you have any questions regarding this procedure).  The Club hopes that through doing this it will help swimmers when they come to swim at championships at various levels.

 

POINTS AWARDED ON CLUB NIGHT

1 point for 2.00 sec or slower than best time

2 points for 1.00 – 1.99 sec slower than best time

3 points for .00 or .99 sec either side than best time

4 points for 1.0 – 1.99 sec faster than best time

5 points for 2.00 sec or more faster than best time

 

Any swimmer competing in any stroke for the first time will be allotted one point for starting.
