Time Conversion


Click on the image above for visual instruction on the time conversion process required for entry into Long Course (50m) events using times on the Club Database.

The times displayed for swimmers on the Club Database are Short Course times relevant to 25m swimming pools.  These times must be converted for entry into Long Course events held in a 50m pool.  The club competes in a number of Long Course meets during the year; Summer Sizzler and Snow Frills are examples. This conversion is required to allow for the effect of fewer turns during events.

There are a number of websites claiming to provide this facility, but the recommended method is through the use of Sport Systems Equivalent Performance software which can be downloaded from the British Swimming webiste using this link


This utility requires a Windows operating system for installation.
