Most Improved Trophies
Trophies are awarded to swimmers who have achieved the largest percentage improvement in their performances over the season in the following categories:
- Girls 12 & Under
- Boys 12 & Under
- Girls 13 & Over
- Boys 13 & Over
Percentages are calculated on the fastest time swum for the current season against the fastest time swum the previous season. The fastest time swum the previous season is known as a swimmers base time. Swimmers without a base time will create a base time with their first swim for the season.
Prior to the 2008-2009 season, improvement was only measured at time trials and club events. Since 2008-2009, swimmers can achieve improvement in any event sanctioned by Swimming SA or TTG club event which includes time trials. SwimmingSA sanctioned events appear in the Handbook of Events.
To be eligible, swimmers must have:
- Competed at the Club Championships; and
- Attended at least 1/3rd of all compulsory training sessions (average of at least 1 session per week)
Note: Failure to comply with any of the above conditions will render any swimmer ineligible.
