First Championship race for the season

This Saturday we will be racing for the first points in our Club Championship series, starting with the 50m Freestyle sprint.

For Championship races there are no handicaps – everyone starts on “Go” and the fastest swimmer wins! 

Championship events are raced against swimmers in the same age group and gender, with points awarded to the fastest three swimmers in each group.

Race distances are fixed by age group for each stroke, with younger swimmers racing shorter distances. This week the Under 8’s will race 30m Freestyle and Under 6’s 20m Freestyle.  

Championship events are always raced first on Saturday mornings, followed by Handicap races for the other two events of the day. 

You can read more about the Club Championship rules, event structure and points on our Racing page. 

So now is the time to sharpen up your speed and fitness with squad training every weekday morning down at the pool!
