WAIT, what if I belong to more than one club?

Some swimmers may be registered in Swim Central as a member of more than one club, possibly:

  • 1st claim club plus a 2nd claim Masters Swimming club
  • Your Masters Swimming club plus a Swimming Australia club

This will require some extra attention to detail in your meet entry to ensure the correct membership is attached.

On the entry form page for your selected meet, note the “current” membership displayed just above the list of events. If this is not the right club, clink on the “Change Primary Membership” link on the right of the screen.

From the list of memberships displayed, select the club you wish to represent for this meet, and from the expanded details, click the green Make Primary button.

You can swap “Primary” memberships as often as you need.

What if I am not a MSA member?

Most swim meets are restricted to members of Masters Swimming Australia, but some may be open to members of FINA affiliated masters swimming organisations from overseas, and others may be open to non-members for promotional purposes.

If the meet host allows entry (check the meet flyer for details), follow the steps below:

  1. Create a profile in Swim Central (only required once, so you will be able to use this profile again for any future meet) – download instructions here

  4. Click on the green “Add to Cart” button for the appropriate non-member product, and proceed to the shopping cart for payment.

    • if applicable, proof of membership with a FINA affiliated masters swimming organisation from overseas, and/or
    • proof of age
