Points are awarded based on the total number of swimmers that race your entered distance
Example 1 - If 150 competitors swim the 2000m, then 1st place receives 150 points, 2nd place receives 149, 3rd place receives 148 points and so on down to the last competitor who earns 1 point.
Example 2 - If you swim the 500m with that race having 55 swimmers and you finish in 10th place then you will receive 46 points.
Note - if you want to maximise points then it is smart to race the distance that has the most competitors in it which is normally the 2000m. This makes it possible for you to receive more points by coming in mid-way in a large pack (ie 75 in a field of 150) compared to winning a small but less competitive race (ie first in a field of 30 receives only 30 points).
1) Points cannot be collected in arrears from the time you first nominate your Team Name
2) All swimmers are responsible for checking race results and alterting us to any mistakes that have inadvertantly crept in.
3) No changes will be allowed to Results or Points within 2 races of any subsequent event - you must check these yourself
