Club Championships | Rules & Eligibility Conditions

  1. Only registered financial Canterbury Taipans Swimming Club Members are eligible to compete in these Club Championships.
  2. Competitors can only compete in their assigned age group and events.
  3. Events will be swum as multi-age events with places awarded based on assigned age groups.
  4. Competitors are encouraged to nominate for as many eligible events as possible.
  5. Stroke age champions will be announced for both the Boys and Girls Divisions, with the overall Boys and Girls Club Champions to be decided via a total points system.
  6. The more events you nominate for and swim in – the more points you gain towards being the Club Champion.
  7. In the event of an equal points situation, a ‘swim-off’ will be held where each competitor chooses their favourite event from the evening, then swims this event again, to try and match their previous time. These competitors can swim different strokes and lengths to each other. Closest time to the original time wins the ‘swim off’.
  8. Being a club level event, there will be rule tolerance, meaning it is not necessary for swimmers to be technically correct – but they must start in a fair manner.
  9. Coaches reserve the right to re-start or re-run events, or disqualify individual competitors from events, should it be required.
