CDSC Gala Scoring
Scoring System for Club Galas
The scoring system for club galas is based on the BAGCAT and GB points systems and aligns the club galas with the Somerset Age Groups, the Western Counties and the National Championships. Points are awarded for times not finishing position. The system also allows swimmers to concentrate on their best strokes as they get older. All four stokes count for the 8 and unders, 3 strokes count for the 9 to 12 years and only 2 strokes for those 13 years and older.
The points system for each age group is as follows.
8 and under 6 points for 1st place, down to 1 point for 6th place
9,10, 11 & 12 Years BAG points from 50, 100 and 200 Freestyle and best I.M. plus BAG points from best two 50, 100 and 200 other strokes
13/14 and Open BAG or GB points from 50, 100 and 200 Freestyle and best I.M. plus BAG or GB points from best 50, 100 and 200 other strokes.
