Individual medal winners in events from the State Championships or State Sprints are excluded from swimming in this competition in the stroke for the age group in which the medal was won. The ten fastest swimmers in eliminations will progress through to the semi finals to be held at MSAC in March each year and the ten fastest swimmers in the semis will progress through to the finals to be held at MSAC the next day.
The club selects a number of meets throughout the season to attend as a club, and all swimmers are encouraged to enter. Many swim meets are conducted over the year across metropolitan and country Victoria. Swimmers are encouraged and may enter any other meets. These meets are advertised in the "Penguin Chatter" newsletter and posted on the back of the noticeboard on pool deck. See the Swim Director for more information on how to enter &/or Swimming Victoria entry cards.
Boronia Swimming Club is part of the Dandenong Ranges District Swimming Association (District East). Throughout the season, swimmers compete against other clubs within the district in both individual and relay competitions. Competitions are held over several Friday nights, at various pools in the District. A list is placed on the noticeboard in the week leading up to the competition and swimmers are asked to place their name on this list if they are available to swim. Teams are selected on the basis of this list by the Team Managers. If you put your name on this list, you will be placed in club events (it will be your responsibility to arrive at the appropriate venue on time)
