Past and the Present
Swimming was inducted into the GPS system in 1918 with TSS winning their frst premiership fve years
into the competitions history. It was a long wait till the next premiership, 2004 seeing TSS fnish 1st
after 82 years! Brisbane Grammar, Churchie, Brisbane State, Gregory Terrace and Nudgee College
have been the main premiership winners over the decades with Nudgee winning 15 of the last 19
Championships. TSS has been the only team strong enough to beat to Nudgee during this period
winning four premierships from the last eight.
TSS have fnished third in the last two years. The team has grown in strength over this period. The
winning margin from third to frst in 2010 was 110 points. Last year it was down to 65 points. As the
team continues to develop under the new leadership from Liam du Feu and Chris Nesbit the aim is
to continue to close the gap and win back another Premiership for The Southport School as soon as
Good luck to everyone involved in 2012.

GPS Policies 2012
1. The 2012 GPS Swimming team will be selected on the basis of fastest swimmer swims and time
will be used from the Australian Age Championships 2011 to the South Coast Championships
a. If a time is used from 2011 for selection into the 2012 GPS team the swimmer needs to have
maintained a high level of training and racing since the time was swam. The Director of
Swimming will decide what a high level of training is.
b. If an individual swimmer is the fastest over multiple events the Director of Swimming will
pick the team based on what is best for the team.
c. If an athlete swims faster than swimmers in above age group categories this swimmer will
race-up if it will be benefcial for the team.
d. Times can be used from any offcial club, State or National meet as long as the meet uses
electronic timing. Times can also be used from all the GPS lead-up meets, TSS time trials,
Districts, South Coast, Anglican Schools and House Swimming as long as they are in the
time frame as stated above.
2. To gain a representative blazer swimmers will need to attend a minimum of four GPS swim meets
(which includes the Championship night) and they must compete in at least one Open event on
the GPS Championship night.
a. If a swimmer is unable to attend a minimum of four GPS swim meets due to in-season GPS
sport commitments special consideration will be taken if they have shown commitment to
swim training in Term Four (2011) and Term One (2012). (If an athlete swims at a high level
then they may substitute GPS training for club training).
