- Entry Fine Print
- Long Course and Short Course times achieved since 1 October, 2017 can be used to enter this meet
- Competitors must enter with their long course entry times where possible, however if you enter using a Short Course entry time you will be entered on the Qualifying Time for that event
- An approved qualifying time must have been achieved, uploaded and approved by the specified closing time and date of the meet
- It is the responsibility of the person processing the online entries to ensure that all times listed in the system are legal and valid to the swimmer. Errors can happen in the OME system from time to time so we trust that stakeholders will not take advantage of this and use incorrect times to process entry into events they do not actually qualify for. In the event that you process an entry on an illegal time, you will be withdrawn from that event and no refund will be given
- Minimum Age Requirement for this meet is 9 years
- Manual Entries will not be accepted
- Payment for online Individual entries must be completed online via credit card at the time of processing in order to be accepted
- Individual Entries - $18
- Swimming NSW does not take responsibility for any entries processed via AnotherPB or any other external avenue. Please ensure you have checked that your entries and payments were successful with these companies prior to the entry closing date to ensure your entries will be accepted on time

- Interstate Competitors
- Volunteering & Officiating
- Swimming NSW Winter Meets
Important changes to the Metropolitan Championships Age groups:
12 year old female swimmers and 13 year old male swimmers can only compete in one Swimming NSW 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) to choose 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in the first age group, the Senior State Stream, and then enter the second Junior State Stream, your entries will be withdrawn and no refund will be offered.
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.
*This rule is for both Individual Events and Relay Events. Swimmers cannot swim in Senior State Relay teams and then Junior Individual or Relay events at Junior Metropolitan or Junior State*
