Do I have to race against other swimmers much faster or slower than me?
When you first join, you will be placed in the slowest race for the distance / stroke to get your seed (beginning) time. Once you get a time, you will be placed with other swimmers who are at about your speed. We reckon a bit of competition will spur you to swim faster!
What incentives are there to get me to swim faster?
Point scores are awarded to swimmers who improve their own personal best (PB) time. Scores are calculated on the amount of improvement. At the end of the swimming season, trophies are awarded in each age group for the highest accumulated point scores based on consistent PB improvement and the highest accumulated championship point scores.
Does the race season run all year long?
The season runs between October and March / April (Term 4 and Term 1 of the school calendar) each year because the 50 metre pool at Enfield is an outdoor unheated pool and is closed during the off season.
Are races run over the January school holidays?
Races are suspended just before Christmas and recommence usually in the last week of January.
