In the County Championships the swimmers score points in the events they enter. The points are calculated from comparative points tables (BAGCATS) and are based upon a swimmer's age and finish time.

The points are totalled up from each swimmer's best 50m swim, best 100m, best 200m in a 'form' stroke, best distance freestyle and best individual medley event - and the swimmers with the most points wins.
