How to enter and attending swim meets
STEP 1. Check your squad competition calendar on this website under Competitions>Targeted Competitions and Events. Coaches select swim meets that are suitable for swimmers in each squad level. This is usually emailed to parents at the start of term but is sometimes updated, so you should keep an eye on the club site
STEP 2. To enter a swim meet you must login to Swim Central. (For more detailed instructions see our step by step instructions on how to enter once you have logged in, here)
If your child is a new member racing for the first time, we recommend just entering 2 or 3 events in the strokes your child is comfortable with (usually freestyle, backstroke and breastroke). If unsure, your child's coach who will recommend what is best for them (Sometimes this is NOT what the swimmer wants to do - however the coach will have good reason to make the recommendations they have in order to keep the swimmer progressing)
Note: It is important to enter swim meets before the closing date. Enter early to avoid disappointment as some swim meets reach maximum capacity very quickly.
STEP 3. Check H2O emails. An email is usually sent to every person competing 2 days prior to the competition with all the information pertaining to that Swim Meet. These updates include information about the meet (for example what time swimmers should arrive for the warm up, parking restrictions etc..).
STEP 4. The most important step - attending the meet! Here's a few tips on what to do on the day:
