How do Endurance 1000 swims work?
There is a Trophy to be earned each year by the club which earns the most points. There are also club trophies for Melville members for these swims. The swims which qualify for these points are:
400m Freestyle 800m Freestyle
400m Breastroke 800m Breastroke
400m Backstroke 800m Backstroke
400m Butterfly 800m Butterfly
400m I.M. 800m I.M.
A maximum of up to 5 swims in each stroke are allowed over the course of the year, with each stroke/distance combination to be swum in different months. Points are calculated based on gender and age groups.
There are also longer swims which you can do which gain a lot more points and you only need to do one of each of these swims for the year. You can swim each of the following strokes and distances if you wish, or only one of the swims. It is up to you. They can be done in Freestyle, Breastroke and/or Backstroke. These swims are:
1/2 hour, 3/4 hour, 1 hour and 1500 metres. For the 1/2 hour, 3/4 hour and 1 hour swims your distance is taken from the closest 25m (rounded down) that you have actually finished swimming when the set time elapses.
