Starting in Season 2010/2011, the XLR8 Incentive system will be introduced.
XLR8 Status is a system that challenges swimmers to become all rounded versatile swimmers. This is extremely important for the athlete’s long-term development. Awards are awarded to swimmers dependent on the Status they have achieved at the completion of 2010-2011 school year. The great thing about XLR8 Status is that you don’t need to be the fastest swimmer to achieve an award; you simply have to take part. There four levels to strive for; Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
The status colours are represented by: Bronze Brown), Silver(Grey), Gold(Yellow,) Platinum(Blue)
XLR8 STRIVE POINTS
Swimmers who achieve a certain number of points will be eligible for an award at the SAILFISH Award Ceremony. The awards are given out in the Year following the calendar year of Strive points. The levels are as follows:
Strive 6,000 Club
Strive 9,000 Club
Strive 13,000 Club
Strive 17,000 Club
If you have the goal of being one of the few swimmers in the club who achieves over 17,000 points, or simply want to get a higher Strive award, you will need to understand how to increase your points. The best way to start is to swim in as many events as possible, then at the next meet improve the time you swim for each event. The faster you go the more points you earn.
The points you have for each completed race appear in the column directly to the right of your time. Your total points will appear on the far left of the sheet next to your name.
All swimmers who have achieved Strive points will be ranked on the Sailfish Strive Leader Board, which will be posted on the notice board at the pool. Remember that being last on this list is still a great achievement as there are many swimmers at Sailfish who won’t even appear on the list. You are taking part in the system and now you can aim to improve your ranking. Check out the leader board to see where you are and work hard to rise up the ladder.
