MC Entries 

MC Swimmers are required to email their Classification to meet.entries@nsw.swimming.org.au

 

Multi Class events are championship events and qualifying times apply. Whilst the OME system will allow MC swimmers to enter all MC events – please ensure you read the MC Qualifying Times and only enter events for which you qualify. Entry times will be checked and any swimmers who do not have the correct entry time for their entries, will be withdrawn and no refund will be given.

Age Groups

* Please note: changes to the Metropolitan Championships Age groups:

12 year old female swimmers and 13 year old male swimmers can only compete in one Metropolitan Championships per season 

 

Note 1: Once a Swimmer selects either the Australian Age Stream or the Junior State Stream and swims at their first Championship event, they must stay in that stream for the duration of the season.

Note 2: Ultimately it is up to the Swimmer, their Coach and their parent/guardian(s) about which stream is best for them.

Note 3: If you compete in the first age group, the Senior State Stream, and then enter the second Junior State Stream, YOUR ENTRIES WILL BE WITHDRAWN AND NO REFUND WILL BE GIVEN. All entrants into the Junior State Stream will be checked. (Even though the Online Entry system will "let you" enter both - the rules state that you cannot enter both)

Rationale: With the 10/U-12 Years State Age Championships being previously held in December & January and these swimmers now not being eligible to compete at the National Age Championships, the swimming season is effectively over for those athlete’s mid-way through the season. This change extends the season for these swimmers until the end of March giving them more opportunities to qualify for the State Age Championships. This change also creates separate Metropolitan and State Age Championship events for these swimmers which will reduce time constraints at these events, which means Swimming NSW can allow more swimmers to compete at these events.
