New Membership & Meet Entry System for 2023
Masters Swimming Australia is in the process of migrating its membership and meet entry system to a new platform, Swim Central, in partnership with Swimming Australia.
Swim Central is a membership and event entry system that is specifically designed to empower swimmers to participate in, and administrators & coaches to run, community swimming.
New 2022 memberships or renewals through the old platform, Gameday (formerly SportsTG), will close on September 31, 2022 and 2023 memberships will be available only through Swim Central from November 1, 2022.
It is expected that the existing Gameday meet entry system will be utilised for the balance of 2022 swim meets, with the Swim Central entry system to be used for all meets scheduled in 2023 and beyond.

New Requirements for Clubs
This new platform utilises the Stripe internet payment system – Stripe makes moving money as simple, borderless, and programmable as the rest of the internet, and it processes hundreds of billions of dollars each year for small and large enterprises.
The Stripe payment platform is like a bank account and has been developed with similar requirements, including the need for certain identification(ID) to be provided and verified in the system prior to the payment of funds (for memberships or meet entry fees). Part of the verification requires all clubs to have an Australian Business Number (ABN).
Further details & instructions on completing these requirements will be provided shortly.
