Instructions for Swim Central online meet entry
1. Click on the orange button on this page above
Login to Swim Central by entering your email address and password *Select forgot password if you do not know your password
After logging in you will be taken directly to the ‘Details’ tab of the appropiate event in Swim Central.
This will include information such as:
Brief event description
Opening/closing date for entries
Any documents for download (e.g. flyer, programme etc.)
2. Click on the ‘Entries’ tab

A pop-up message will tell you when a new nomination has been added to your cart.
In contrast to SportsTG and other entry systems, there will be no opportunity to enter a nominated time for your events.
Nominated times will be pre-filled from a database of your times swum at previous swim meets – if you do not have a time in the database for any particular stroke/distance combination, you will be entered as “NT” and seeded in the slowest heat. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause while the database of result times is being expanded.
