Why do I have to time-keep?

When attending swim meets, hosts of meets allocate clubs swim lanes according to a number of swimmers from the club attending. When Peel Aquatics is allocated time keeping lanes it is our obligation to fill these positions so that the meet can run as smoothly and efficiently as possible. It is the parent/guardians obligation to be available for this role at every meet their child/children compete in. For target meets, a roster will be done by our meet coordinator, which will be sent to all members prior to the event. Please note that if your child is sick or unable to attend for any reason please liaise with other parents who are attending to ensure your timekeeping duties are fulfilled.

 

What is the club's uniform policy? 

All swimmers are encouraged to wear their club uniform at competitions and to training. Members are required to swim wearing a Peel cap at outside events and should wear a club shirt when receiving medals or awards. Uniforms and caps can be purchased on the members webpage or by contacting our uniform officer.

 

What is Myswimresults?

MySwimresults is where you registered on line with Swimming WA. After completing the registration process your child will be given a log on. From here you will be able to enter swim meets (see the PAC Competitors Guide document for information on how to do this), view recorded official times of your swimmer, and more. You also renew your SWA membership on this page. 

 

What are Club Championships?

Summer Club Championships are usually held in March each year. PAC swimmers compete in their own age group starting from 8 years and under, then individual age groups from 9 to 16, through to 17 and over. Club camps entry forms will be sent to you via email prior to the event - if you haven't received the form prior to the event, please contact a committee member.

All swimmers MUST swim a minimum of 5 club nights from May until March to be eligible for the Club Championship Trophy or Runner-up Trophy.

Swimmers must have a recorded time in the nominated distance and stroke prior to the Championships (Swimmers can only get points for a swim if they have swum it before and have an official time). The swimmer will be allowed to swim the event for an official time if never swum before – but no points will be added towards their score at Club Champs.

To qualify for Champion or Runner-up, the swimmer MUST compete in events as follows (maximum points can be gained by competing in all events):

8 Years and Under must compete in three (3) events: 
  • 50m Freestyle
  • 50m Backstroke
