Club Championships are a two day competition held at the end of the season. At Club Championships children compete against swimmers of the same age and gender only. Swimmers will compete for medals on the day in every event.
Nominations for Club Championships are now open online here (select Day 1 and 2 separately), and entries have been extended until Sunday 22nd March.

To participate at Club Championships, children must be competitive registered swimmers with Samford Stingrays Swim Club and must have attended 6 standard club nights for the season (or 3 club nights for half-season swimmers).
Please note that children are able to participate in any events appropriate for their age group, regardless of whether they have qualified at our regular club nights or are swimming those events at our regular club nights. This means that all Individual Medley & 100m races are available to any swimmer who would like to enter. They do not have to ‘qualify’ or have swum that stroke/distance at club night.

Age Champions will be calculated from points for swimming 25m/50m in all 4 strokes over the course of the two day club championship carnival. (12.5m, 100m & medley events will not count). The distance applicable to your child is set by age. Children aged 9 & Under will swim 25m. Children aged 10+ will swim 50m. Some children may find that they will need to swim up or down in distance, depending on age.
Points Champions. Points have accrued for all standard club night events up until Friday 20th March. Trophies based upon these points will be awarded to all children on Saturday 28th of March.
Other Awards. We will also recognise overall club champions, distance champions, and the Jackie Phillips Cup recipient; as well as records broken during the season, and other achievements recognised by Swimming QLD.
