The Participation League

Please note that points will only be awarded to swimmers who have:

  1. Added their SSA number to their record on the Swimming Plus system.
  2. Added their club to their record on the Swimming Plus system.
  3. Participated without a wetsuit.


Please visit the website and ensure that all of your information is captured and up to date. Failing to do so may result in your points being allocated to the incorrect club and perhaps even no points at all if there is no SSA number.

Coaches, parents and administrators please remind and encourage your swimmers to update their records before the next event.

Visit http://www.swimmingplus.com/updateprofile to update your details. PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY.

Wetsuit swimmers

It is very difficult for the recorders to see the numbers of the wetsuit swimmers at the finish line. Please shout your number out to the officials when finishing to ensure that your result is recorded.

Race registration

To encourage early registration and to assist us with compliance to SSA prescribed safety regulations, we will be charging a R50 late registration penalty to swimmers who have not registered online.

Please note that swimmers are required to report 30 minutes before the race start. We will be enforcing strict registration cut off. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Also... we only accept cash on race day and online credit card payments. We no longer accept EFTs.

Change in starting times

Please keep an eye on the starting times of the races. We are considering starting the 10 and 5 km races a little earlier.
