- "Very easy and intuitive to use!"
- "Having Elite and Masters scoring all in one app is key: best age-group times are just phenomenal! It keeps you motivated."
- "Now I can set much smarter goals - goals that are adjusted to my age!"
Pick an event, then roll to your time. Swim Points will calculate on-the-fly. For Elite Category, they will match FINA Scoring tables. For age-groups, Swim Points will use the same formula, but based on Masters World Record times!
Lock the points to compare the swims among different events, gender, pool lengths and age groups.
For any event or age group - roll the time towards 00:00 (min:sec) to get the points out of the maximum points range and the time will automatically bounce back to the World Record time. Alternatively, use the WR> shortcut to jump to the world record.
Once you see a World Record time, hit Lock points. You can now pick any event and any age group, and glance through all the world records. That is because 1000 points always means a World Record performance.
Tap on the points number to enter the points manually. Your target time will be calculated using the reverse scoring formula.
WHY SWIM POINTS?
Swim Points Calculator uses the points tables (based on World Records) to convert your times into point values. More points for world class performances (WR time is 1000 points) and fewer points for slower performances. By assigning point values to swimming times, comparisons of results among different events are possible. For Elite category - active competitive swimmers - Swim Points exactly match the FINA Scoring Tables, as defined by FINA, the International Swimming Federation. For age groups, the Swim Points formula is the same, but based on Masters World Records! Swim Points Score is therefore a universal value. It allows you to analyse your performance and follow your evolution as a swimmer. It can also, for example, help you to objectively estimate your strongest and weakest stroke.
Do not get discouraged by lower points you might score. The scoring formula is such that the points drop rapidly near the world record pace. Lacking just 10% behind the WR time, what would be an impressive swim, will correspond to just 750 points. Moreover, some 200 points is also a good swim by any standards - a score that people who never regularly practiced swimming will hardly achieve.
Swim on my friends, and remember: once a swimmer, always a swimmer!
