Targeted Meets

Each season the coaches will target competition meets they think are suitable for each squad. 

These are the meets that the coaches will attend. There may be many other meets held throughout the year at various locations which swimmers are also able to enter. 

Targeted meets will be posted and indicated by an * on our competition events page and communicated by email by Narrabeen SC coaches.

Types of Swim Meets  The types of meets offered by Swimming NSW cater for a range of swimming abilities: 


Offer new or younger swimmers the opportunity to compete with others of a similar level. These meets are great for gaining experience and gaining official times in new events, as qualifying times are often not a pre-requisite. 


provide the opportunity for swimmers to improve their PB’s and to achieve a qualifying time for Area, Metro & State Championships. These meets often have qualifying times for each event.

Championship Meets

 SMNE (Swimming Metro North East) holds both summer and winter area championships for which qualifying times apply. At a higher level, NSW Metropolitan Championships, NSW State Age Championships, and Australian National Championships are held for both long and short course seasons. These meets will have qualifying times for each event.

Open Water Events

provide the opportunity for swimmers to challenge themselves with another development pathway. Typically these events are longer distance. 

Narrabeen SC coaches will advise swimmers about a targeted competition strategy for meets and events in line with their individual swimming goals.   

It is recommended that swimmers enter targeted swim meets well before the meet closing date, as many tend to reach capacity rather quickly.

Volunteering at Meets

Helping Out At Swimming Meets

The club relies on the support of member families to help with the running of swim meets – assistance for which we are truly grateful!

At a minimum this can entail time-keeping, and sometimes catering. However there are also exciting opportunities to get involved in technical duties – which are needed at every swim meet to ensure they run smoothly.

To make it quick and easy for any person to gain the required skills and confidence in these areas, Swimming NSW has creating a number of online training modules for technical officials.

Currently there are online courses for:

• Timekeeping
• Marshal and Check Starter
• Inspector of Turns
• Judge of Stroke
• Starter
• Recorder
• Dolphin Timing Operator
• Referee Course

New courses are added periodically.
