State Teams

  • Overview
  • The National State Teams Championship is a great opportunity for athletes; it sees each state bring their 40 best up and coming swimmers to race. It is a chance for swimmers to represent Team NSW.

  • Selection Criteria
  • Eligibility

    To be eligible for selection an athlete must:

    be a registered member of Swimming NSW

    have completed and returned a signed availability form

    be an Australian Citizen who is eligible to represent NSW at this event

    be aged between 13 yrs and 16 yrs (female) and 14yrs and 17 yrs (male) as at the 21 st September 2018

    complete a SNSW Team Agreement and additional requirements as per agreement.

    Selection Criteria

    A team of up to 40 swimmers will be elected. The NSW State Team will comprise of 10 males in each of the two age groups (14/15 & 16/17 years) and 10 females in each of the two age groups (13/14 & 15/16 years). Swimmers age will be as at the first day of competition – 21 st September 2018.

    The squad will be selected off the highest rankings using the following meets: 

    • 2018 NSW Country Short Course Championships
    • 2018 NSW Metropolitan Short Course Championships
    • 2018 NSW State Age 13 & Over Short Course Championships

    The first ranked male athlete from the combined 14/15 years age groups and the combined 15/16 years age group events will become the first priority for selection onto the NSW State Team.

    The first ranked female athlete from the combined 13/14 years age groups and the combined 15/16 years age groups in events will become first priority for selection onto the NSW State Team.

    Swimming NSW Selection Committee will also have the option of using Australian Age and Australian Open results when selecting athletes for the 800m and 1500m events.

    Only performances in Olympic events will be considered

    After considering the first priority swimmers, the swimming NSW selectors along with the Swimming NSW Coaching Director will consider remaining swimmers that will best suit the balance of the team and the order of events in the State Teams Short Course program. Relay swimmers and where required, other priority swimmers may also be considered using the same criteria.

    NSW Athletes unavailable due to National Team Commitments will still be considered for selection in this team.

    Meeting any of the selection criteria does not guarantee selection into the NSW State team. In the event that the selectors need to choose between two swimmers of equal ranking, selectors along with the Team Head Coach will select the athlete which best fulfils the needs of the team.
