Swimmer and Club of the Year Points System

Swimmer of the Year Points System

Points will be awarded to swimmers for each race based on their finishing positions as follows:

Men: Place < 100 participants 100+ participants Liffey and Harbour
1 10 10 20
2 – 6 8 8 16
7 – 12 6 7 14
13 – 20 5 6 12
21 – 30 4 5 10
31 – 50 3 4 8
51+ 3 3 3
Women: Place < 50 participants 50+ participants Liffey and Harbour
1 10 10 20
2 – 6 8 8 16
7 – 12 6 7 14
13 – 20 4 6 12
21 – 30 3 5 10
31 – 40 3 4 8
41+ 3 3 3

The following applies more so to those who do many / most of the races. The final tally of point scoring races counted will be taken from the number of races completed from this year’s calendar less six. For example, if 29 races are completed, and you swam all 29, it is based on your best 23 results. If you swam 24 races, it is based on your best 23 (you lose your lowest score). If you swim 23 or less from this example it is the total from those 23 races. This was introduced in 2015 to take account of the fact that it can be difficult to make so many races over such a compressed season. In the event of a tie, a count back of best race finishes will apply. Note the number of races can vary from year to year as a result of weather conditions etc.

Club of the Year Points System

Points will be awarded to clubs in each race based on the club’s finishing position in the team prize competition, i.e. based on the first four swimmers home from each club, as follows:

  • 1st – 12 points
  • 2nd – 11 points
  • 3rd – 10 points
  • 4th – 9 points
  • 5th – 8 points
  • 6th – 7 points
  • 7th – 6 points
  • 8th – 5 points
  • 9th – 4 points
  • 10th – 3 points
  • 11th – 2 points
  • 12th and lower – 1 point

Clubs, from 2017, who complete all the races will drop their 4 worst team results (or no scores for no team out), so e.g. IF the season comprises 27 races, the club’s best 23 results will make up their final team score. If a club completes 25 races out of 27, their final tally will be based on their best 23 results, if a club completes say 19 races or 22 races in this example, then all the points earned will count.
