Saturday Club Racing
Lane Cove Swim Club runs Club races on Saturday mornings from October to April each year at Lane Cove Aquatic Centre’s outdoor pool. Swimming starts from 7am and finishes around 8:30am.
Racing is friendly and relaxed, with swimmers aged from 4 to 92 years racing alongside each other. Distances are from 25m to 400m to ensure swimmers of all abilities can compete. Strokes undertaken are freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. The strokes raced each week are rotated through a three-week cycle (Week A, Week B & Week C) so that distances and strokes are distributed evenly over the season (an Individual Medley is recorded as freestyle points).
For each race you swim, your time is recorded. Points are then calculated based on the difference between your graded and recorded times on the day. These points count towards the Summer Club Point Score. There are numerous age categories for each gender plus a Family Point Score if more than one family member swims.
At the end of the season all the points from each race swum are totalled. The swimmer with the highest accumulated points for each category is then awarded a perpetual trophy at our annual Club Presentation event.
