Competitions & Results
One of the primary aims of the club is to develop competitive swimmers who train to compete against other swimmers from their squad, other clubs or other national regions.
Swimmers have PBs (Personal Bests) for different strokes over different distances.
You can find results from the current seasons internal competitions below and to the left you will find the archive of results from our Club Championships and Internal Cups.
Huntly and Anderson Cups
The Huntly and Anderson Cups are held internally every 3 months. The Huntly Cup is open to swimmers from either of the Intermediate Squads and the Anderson Cup is open to swimmers from Prep Group. The Huntly Cup is awarded to the swimmer who makes the biggest improvement in a 50m time in any stroke between 2 consecutive cup meets. The Anderson Cup is awarded to the swimmer who has the fastest combined time of a 25m of each of the 4 strokes.
Intermediate Speed Awards
The Intermediate Squad Speed Awards are awarded to squad swimmers who achieve certain times at the Huntly Cups. Awards are presented in Bronze, Silver and Gold once these times are met in three of the four strokes. In addition a Gold+ award is granted once the set time is achieved in any one stroke.
Results and awards are now calculated using metres times - yards times are converted to the metres equivalent. Speed awards are based on 50 metres.

|Backstroke||60.00 secs||53.00 secs||48.00 secs||44.00 secs|
