Squad Events

Our internal events program provides our squad swimmers with the opportunity to perform under race conditions.  It is also an opportunity for friends and family to come along and cheer the swimmers in their pursuit for a personal best time!  

Swimmers compete to gain points for annual championship trophies. Points are awarded for both participation and achievement of personal best times and culminate in an overall championship series winner. Age group winners are presented with a perpetual trophy at the Christmas Super Sprints. For more information please see our Squad Event Calendar.

Swimmers can view their times obtained at the Super Sprints, Mega Swim and Red & Blue Day events by visiting http://www.sports-tek.com/TMOnline/index.asp?STRIPPED=NorwoodSwimSchool Select the ATHLETES tab and search for swimmer's name, then change the COURSE from 'yards' to 'SCM' (short course metres).
