A quick reference guide for entering competitions:
- Keep a record of your times. You can find these at www.swimmingresults.org/individualbest and by entering your membership no. or family name. It will give you the venue, the date and the level of the competition.
- Some competitions have QT's/Qualifying Times. In this case you can only enter if you have achieved that time.
- Some Open Meets do not have QT's and you may enter if you have no time but you will be put into the slowest heats. If you enter with a time you will be put into a heat with other swimmers with similar times so you may be with other children of a different age group. Remember you are really racing the clock, it's all about times!
- You need to try and enter events regulary to keep an up to date bank of times.
- If you need to get a time, ask your coach to do a time trial. Remember PB's stand for Personal Best - your best ever time in that event!
