Once your league has met the above requirements, follow the steps below to enter and manage scores for each meet:
After a meet is complete, an administrator from each team will enter the meet scores on their SwimTopia site. Note: Uploaded results don’t automatically update the meet’s scores; scores must be entered manually, allowing team administrators to confirm the results.

Note: teams can request to enable score tracking even if their league isn’t tracking scoring. Teams can contact us at email@example.com to enable scoring.
Score Roll-up to League Site
The meet scores will automatically roll up to the league site. If the scores input by all the teams in the meet agree with each other, then the consensus score automatically updates the official league score. If there is a discrepancy, the league can set the correct score.
League administrators can check on meet scoring by going to Manage League > Schedule. In the “Scored?” column, a checkmark indicates that all competitors have submitted matching scores. A warning triangle indicates a discrepancy in the scores.
Click on the Scores icon to open the Scores tab for that meet.
Managing a Score Discrepancy
League administrators can set the official meet score to settle a score discrepancy.
Click on the discrepancy alert icon on the Schedule page to open the Scores tab. Once on the Scores tab, you’ll see an indicator for the mismatch:
To correct the error:
- Click the “Edit” button for the team with the score error
- Enter the correct score in the score field
- Click “Save”
The score displayed in the Score column is now the official score for that meet:
