A series pointscore is run in conjunction with each of the Summer and Winter Development Series. Generally there are four meets in each of the series. See below for details of how the pointscore is determined.
Results from each meet with Series points are shown in the following table along with the final rankings by points separated into development and intermediate levels for both girls and boys.

Determining the Pointscore
- The first time an event is swum in a given Series the swimmer receives 2 points.
- Swimmers earn "improvement" points from the second time they swim a particular event within a given Series.
- From the second swim for each event, points are awarded against the swimmers' previous Series best time in that event.
Series points are accumulated at each meet on the following basis:
|0 points||if swimmer does not finish an event or is disqualified|
|1 point||if swim does not equal or better previous best Series time|
|2 points||if equal to or better than previous best Series time but less than 1 second faster|
|3 points||if better than previous best Series time by 1 second but less than 2 seconds|
|4 points||if better than previous best Series time by 2 second but less than 3 seconds|
|5 points||if better than previous best Series time by 3 seconds or more|
|2 points||for each first swim for a stroke and distance IN THE SERIES|
At the conclusion of each Series swimmers are assessed to determine if they are considered to be Intermediate or Development level. Each swimmers current best time (long course for summer; short course for winter) at the conclusion of the Series is used to determine if they are rated at Intermediate level or above for their age group as at the date of the last Series meet.
