Points System Report

Top  Previous  Next

The Points System Report is designed to produce a report of a swimmer's Total Points based on any of the included Point Systems, sorted either by Name or by Total Points.




When you select any of the three HY-TEK Points Systems, you have the option to customize the set of events by age group, distance, and stroke that you want to report.  Click on the Customize HY-TEK Points System button to display the following screen.  You also have the option to choose whether or not to use the swimmer's current age for computing the total points for that swimmer or use their age-at-meet.  For example, if a swimmer ages up to 11 part way through the season, you can either compute total points for an 11 year old or compute total points based on the meets in which he/she was 10 years old and then add them to the total points for the meets when the swimmer was 11 years old.





Choose the age group, stroke, and distance you wish to report on based on the options that the particular Points System provides.



HY-TEK Age Group Points


There are 9 different sets of points for each course covering the following age groups:


8 & under girls and boys and includes 25's
9-10 girls and boys
11-12 girls and boys
13-14 girls and boys
15-16 boys


HY-TEK Single Year Age Group Points


There are 18 different sets of points for each course covering the following one year age groups.  This is the Points System used by USA Swimming's IM Extreme Challenge.


9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18 year old girls and boys
Anyone older than 18 will get zero points when using Single Year Age Group Points. 8 and under athletes will receive the same points as a 9 year old.


You may also choose USA Swimming's IM Extreme Challenge (IMX) set of age groups/strokes/distances which is a subset of the HY-TEK Single Year set of age groups/strokes/distances.  The IMX set of age groups/strokes/distances are listed on the IMX USA Swimming web page.



HY-TEK Open Points


There are 2 sets of points which can be used for any age. These are similar to FINA points in concept.


FINA Points

FINA Points is a point system based on the average of the top 10 all-time best performances since the last Olympics. This average time from the top 10 all-time performances is assigned 1000 points. We have built in these base times for Long Course Meters and Short Course Meters as of the finish of the 2004 Olympics. After the 2008 Olympics, We will update these base times which will cause the points will change.


LEN Points

LEN Points is a point system based on the World records since the last Olympics. This world record time is assigned 1000 points. We have built in the World records for Long Course Meters and Short Course Meters from the 2004 Olympics. After the 2008 Olympics, We will update these base times which will cause the points will change.


GB Points and GB BAG Points

GB Points are a British comparative points system based on the average of the top eight best performances in the World.


SNZ Points

SNZ Points are used by Swimming New Zealand..


NISCA Points

NISCA Points were developed by the National Interscholastic Swimming Coaches Association, a United States based organization. It is a point system which is only for short course yards and only for high school events. The points range from 0 to 200 per event. These points are also called NISCA Power Points.


Click on Reports then Performance and Points System and choose from the various menu options.  Since each Point System is based on the course of the swim with NO COURSE CONVERSIONS, you must first choose from the three course options - LC Meters, SC Meters, or Yards.  After you select the Points System and the course, TM will format the report based on the age/stroke/distance parameters defined by the Point System.  In the case of any of the three HY-TEK Points Systems, TM will offer you the ability to customize which age/stroke/distances that you wish to use in the report.
