    • Any changes you do need to make, must be made in writing to the Chief Recorder prior to the commencement of the session in which the relays are to be swum
    • In Club relays a maximum of one (1) swimmer from a younger age group may participate
      • At the NSW State Age 13 – 18 Years Championships, in club relays a maximum of one (1) swimmer from a younger age group may participate, however at these championships only athletes who are aged 13 years or older are allowed to compete
    • A swimmer may only appear in one (1) relay team list for that event
    • Where a club enters two (2) teams both teams may score points provided the qualifying time has been met
  • How these rules apply to clubs placing entries
  • Provided below is some clarification of these rules to simplify the process for clubs.

    • At the 13‐18 Years State Age Championships, all the Relay events are ‘& Under’ events, which means the following:
