Club Nights
 
Club nights are where swimmers can put into practise what they learn in training - a chance to race their friends and try to improve their own personal best times (PBs). With each swim they are scoring points which all go towards determining trophy-winners at the end of the season.
 
Points are scored,  not by who comes first, second or third in each race, but by how fast the swimmer's time is when compared to their current PB (see below).
 
TIP: The secret to scoring lots of points over the season is to come every club night, enter all the events that are offered and to swim as hard as you can.
 

Delicious FoodWhen are they on?
Held each Friday evening from September to March at the Lismore Memorial Baths, club nights are very family-friendly events, with delicious food from the barbecue and great camaraderie.

Swimmers should be at the pool ready to sign on at 5.30pm each week so that racing can commence at 6pm.

2017-2018 Season
Unfortunately the Memorial Baths suffered major damage in the March flooding and it still has not been repaired. At this stage it appears that it could be as late as early December before the pool reopens and our club nights can resume.

 

Grading
For club nights, swimmers are graded into divisions according to their ability. They can be in different divisions for different strokes. Generally new swimmers start in division 3 and progress to division 2 as their skills and times improve and then on to division 1.

The following times must be broken for a swimmer to be promoted to the next division:
