H20PLAY series assigns points to each swimmer within each race and recognises all swimmers achievements.  The King and Queen of the series will be the top male and top female point scores and with the point allocation system can be won in the skins or wetsuit category.  Wetsuit swimmers may decide to swim in skins to gain more points and have the chance to beat a particular competitor or increase their finishing position. Hence, promoting skins swimming and promoting health competition between wetsuits and skins swimmers

The top 10 of each gender will receive a medal and all competitors will receive a certificate of completion in the series.  There is a special recognition for all swimmers who complete all swims in the series.
