Club Championships

Building on last year’s officially timed interclub race meets at WAC, we have not only proved a simpler pathway for all our swimmers to gain official times for entry into some of the SMNE meets, but also a way of exposing swimmers to the routine & discipline of a race meet, yet in a friendly, fun environment.

In order to keep the race schedule meaningful & rewarding for the 2018/19 season, the 3 race nights that are confirmed will also contribute to The WASC Age Club championship and there will also be an Age Personal Best Champion.

What are the WASC Club Championships?

The club Championships are aged races that are held over the course of 3 race nights in April, June, August events each year. Races are run across a number of strokes including a 25m dash for the little ones (under 7years). All the races are age and gender based, and times are not handicapped. Swimmers earn points for each championship race that they swim and the position they finish; as well as a point schedule for attainments to race night event PB’s. The swimmer with the most points will be awarded the Age Club Champion & Age Personal Best Champion Awards (Male & Female).

How it will be managed?

To be eligible to compete for the 2018/19 Championship season, you must be a financial paid up member of the club & have competed in 2 (out of 3) of the race nights at the WAC.

Age Champions are determined based on points achieved from each race. A simple point scale of 1st =8pts, 2nd =7pts, 3rd =6pts etc, 8th and subsequent = 1pt

Age Personal Best Champions are determined based on points achieved from each race relating to time improvement over the prior recorded personal best times for that stroke. For each half a second reduction 2 points will be recorded up to a maximum of 10 points per race participated.
