School Swimming

School Swimming

Many schools in Queensland will run swimming carnivals and meets as part of their school sport program. These are organised by an individual school or their governing body. Whilst school swimming is separate from club swimming there are some school swimming meets which are approved by Swimming Queensland (SQ). This means results from these meets can be uploaded into an individuals Swim Central results and used to qualify for future meets and development opportunities.

  • Information for Parents and Swimmers
  • For school swimming meet results to be included in Results Central they must meet certain criteria and be considered an approved meet by Swimming Queensland.

    Approved Meets

    Once the meet organiser has completed the approval process and received confirmation from Swimming Queensland, the meet will appear on our Currently Approved School Meets list below.

    Permission to publish results in Results Central

    For your results from an approved school meet to be included in Results Central you must have completed the relevant Department of Education's consent form. Your school will provide this to you and you'll need to return it to them.

    Results appearing in Results Central

    After the meet, the organiser will provide Swimming Queensland with a copy of the results for publication and inclusion in Results Central.

    Once published, these results can then be used to enter meets and may be used as qualifying times for development programs. Please allow at least a week for results to appear in Results Central.

    Records at School Meets

    It is possible to achieve Queensland and National records at an approved school meet. Please note that you will need to submit a record application form to Swimming Australia or Swimming Queensland should you believe that you have broken a record at a school meet.
