Handicap Pointscore Competition

A handicap pointscore competition is held on Saturday mornings at the Baths, with the season commencing in October and running through to March. All events are handicapped based on previous times. For new members, and those that do not have a time registered, you will undertake a time trial (i.e. start off at “GO”), thus enabling your handicap to be determined. Handicap points will be awarded on the following basis:

End of Season Championship

The end of season championships are held on the last Sunday in March. Qualification for championships can be achieved by swimming on at least seven Saturdays (irrespective of when you join the Club, subject to the discretion of the Committee). Qualification swims may also be obtained by swimming in the Tidal Pools Carnival and the 1 mile or ½ mile swim.

In the event of adverse weather leading to the cancellation of race days, the Committee may revise the number of qualification swims needed.

All championship races are a scratch start (everyone starts on “GO”), with points for placings for each race awarded on the following basis:
  • 1st place = 3 points
  • 2nd place = 2 points
  • 3rd place = 1 point
  • All other places = 0 points
Please also note the following qualifications/exceptions:
  • A swimmer may only enter one distance event (50m, 30m or 15m) for each stroke, in their age group
  • For the adults 30m butterfly event, when there is also a 50m butterfly event in the same age group, 1st place is awarded 1 point. 2nd and 3rd places receive 0 points.


Wet Weather

If there are heavy rains during the week leading to poor water quality, the program for Saturday may be cancelled. Updates will be posted by 6.45am on Saturdays on this website.


Bob Hayter Memorial Mile and Half Mile Swims

The 1 mile and ½ mile swim will take place on a Sunday in February. Bring BBQ goodies and stay for a post swim late breakfast. We had a fantastic turnout last year, and this year is looking at being another success, as we honour our good mate Bobby Hayter.


Tidal Pools Carnival

This is a fun afternoon carnival and in the past Northbridge and The Spit have battled it out for overall honours. This is a great day for the club – and as champions for a few years running we hope that we will be well represented this season to continue our winning ways. Further details will be announced and we will need help prior to and on the day.



During the summer months an informal adult squad swims three mornings a week. Contact a committee member for more information.



The kiosk is run by the club and operates on race day, from about 7:45am to 10am.


Club Apparel

We have a great range of keenly priced clothing for swimmers. Please contact the kiosk for details.
