POINTS & AWARDS

Improvement Points

 

Each week Improvement points are earned by participating athletes in each event based on their results. Improvement Points are calculated by the system from the results that are entered each week.

The club awards Improvement Point certificates based on the following improvement points scoring system.

​Also the child with the highest number of average improvement points from each age group will receive the Most Improved Award. There is also a Perpetual Trophy for the athlete who has the most Improvement Points from all age groups over the season.

Age Champions (Best in Age Points)

At the end of each season, individual age champions are selected, based on the  weekly points awarded throughout the season.  Points are awarded to all participants in each event, from 10 points for first place to 1 point for 10th place. 

In addition to the first three places in each age group, Achievement Awards are awarded to other athletes in each group based on frequency of participation.  All children will receive at least an Encouragement Award.

Senior athletes have a system of awards similar to the above. More information can be obtained from the By Laws.
