Points are awarded for swimming and improvement of personal best times (P.B’s).
Nominating for Swim Club Nights
Nominations for swim meets and club nights is online through the Swim Central website. Swim Central is the national operating system for clubs and members, this online portal links all your interactions with swimming; including your swimming Club, your Region, Swimming Queensland and Swimming Australia. It is used to manage the activities of everyone in your family regardless of swimming level or club. This includes organising family memberships, meet entries, club night nominations and other product purchases in the one place. Nominations through Swim Central is known as Online Meet Entry (OME). All registered swimmers with Swimming Queensland will have a Swim Central family username and password. If you do not have the username/password, please email our Registrar, Angela Cradick (firstname.lastname@example.org). Only registered financial Swimming Queensland members (Dolphin, or Competitive Swimmer) can nominate for swim meets and club nights. However, parent members may also register for club nights. Any queries regarding nominations
should be addressed to our Race Secretary, Linnette Kyprios (email@example.com).
Club nights are held on Friday nights from October through to March of each year with a start time of 5.45 pm for warm up and a race start time of 6.00 pm. Swimmers take part in races with their mates, their times are recorded and points are awarded. Club nights are FREE and opened to all financial club members to provide a fun and relaxed atmosphere for swimmers to showcase skills learnt during weekly training sessions, assess their overall progress, try new events, build to the performance of our annual club championships and learn to practice the
correct race procedures required for swim meets. It is also a great opportunity for swimmers and their family to meet and socialise with other members. Food can be purchased from the Canteen to have a night off. Swimmers must nominate through Swim Central. Nominations
close each Wednesday night at midnight. Late nominations are not accepted.
Please Note:- Club Night Roster
If your child is nominated to swim, parents are required to assist with timekeeping or in the canteen or BBQ to help our Club night run smoothly. A parent roster will be prepared and issued on the night. Please check the roster upon arrival and make yourself available as requested. We appreciate your support! We also appreciate that you may be new to the Club, however all the jobs are pretty simple and there will be plenty of members to assist you. Many hands make light work and an early night’s finish!
In the event of adverse weather looming (a thunder storm and or lightning) a decision to call off the Club Night will be made between 5.00-5.15 pm in the afternoon and communicated via “Team App”. Club Nights are not cancelled due to rain.
