Club awards

Every year, at the AGM and awards night, our swimmers are acknowledged with a range of awards. 

  • Annual Age Group Championship Points Winner: to the swimmer who accrued the most points at the three Championship Nights. Swimmers must have compete in at least one club night prior to each championship meet to be eligible. Points are awarded as follows:

    • 1st: 40, 2nd: 32, 3rd: 24, 4th: 16, 5th: 8, Participation: 4 (note: as the Sprint Night is made up of 4 swims each swim will be allocated ¼ of the points for each place)

    • Trophies are presented at the end of year function to the best Male and Female in each age group from 8 - 17 years and Open

    • Tied total points over all races will produce equal Champions and trophies will be presented to each swimmer

  • Age Group Award: to the swimmer who accrued the most points at regular club nights. Points are awarded for a range of factors including participation, if a swimmer is competing in an event for the first time, and improvement against entry times. This points system (which you can learn more about here) is used extensively by swimming clubs around Australia. (Note: swimmers must attend at least 60% of club nights to be eligible for this award.)

  • Overall Points Winner: across all age groups, to the swimmer who accrued the most points at regular club nights 

  • Annette O'Neill Shining Star Award: to the swimmer that is a role model to others, nominated by coaches

  • Coaches Encouragement Awards: one for each squad, nominated by coaches
