How the awards are decided

OWS Award

The Casey Seals Open Water Swimming Award is a perpetual crystal trophy awarded to the member who has got the most points from their open water swimming races over the last year, from 1 July to 30 June.

To see how the points are calculated (and to see the fantastic trophy), go to the Open Water Swimming Award page.

Swimmer Of The Year

The Casey Seals Swimmer Of The Year is based on the FINA points system. FINA points are calculated using a formula which compares your time to the world record for that event for your age.

FINA Points = 1000 x ( World Record / Time Swum ) ^ 3

For events that are not recognised by FINA (and therefore do not have a world record) but which have a Masters Swimming Australia national record (eg. 800m backstroke), we plug the time into our FINA points calculator using the national record adjusted by the average difference between all world and national records. This way the long distance form-stroke swimmers are not disadvantaged.

Each member's points are tallied and the average is taken for their top 3 swims for the calendar year.

The Swimmer Of The Year is the person who has the highest average points.

Most Improved

This is awarded by the coaches to the person that they consider has shown the greatest improvement in their swimming over the last year.

Coach's Award

Like the Most Improved, this is selected by the coaches but unlike that award, this one has no specific criteria. It is meant to recognise a number of factors mostly based around training sessions, including attitude, effort, encouragement of other swimmers, etc, but these are just loose guidelines and the choice is totally up to the coaches.

Outstanding Contribution

This is presented to someone who has made an outstanding contribution to the club in the last year. This could be for one single act, or a maybe for a continuous effort over the entire year. Note that a committee member who has done their job well over the year does not merit getting this - it would only be if they have gone far beyond what is expected of their position.

It is awarded only if someone has made an outstanding contribution, so it will not necessarily be presented each year.
