Encouragement/Courage Award

This trophy and plaque is awarded only if a swimmer meets certain criteria.

    AND /OR
  • A swimmer who has successfully attempted to swim another stroke that they initially couldn’t do and over several distances.

In 2022 the committee chose to award this to 2 people, Helga and Julia.

E1000 Endurance

There are 62 swims involved in the E1000. They include 5 x 400s of Free, Back, Breast, Fly and IM, also 5 x 800s in those strokes. Plus 1500m, half hour, three quarter hour and one hour each of Free, Back and Breast

For each of the distances and strokes there are times/distances assigned for each gender and age group resulting in the allocation of points for each swim completed. So it is possible to complete all 62 swims but not necessarily achieve the maximum 1005 points.

The points earned from this program goes towards the National Endurance Trophy each year. An honourable mention goes to Lindsay with 985, Hans with 956, also to Kyle, Diane, Helga, Laura and Alexandra who scored high points for the club.
