Introduced in November 2011 the Grand Prix Series provides our swimmers with an additional opportunity to race against high quality opposition, usually in long course format, at key periods of the competitive season.  

The Meets are open to all swimmers throughout Scotland and entries are also be welcomed from across the UK and overseas. The series consists of three meets hosted in Inverness, Edinburgh and Aberdeen. Each meet will follow the same format with swimmers scoring points based on performance at each meet. The prize fund is £5,000 and will be earned by the leading swimmers across the series, with prizes for the best overall swimmers (male and female) and for individual categories. Meets may also be entered on an individual basis but swimmers must contest at least two of the three meets in order to be eligible for prize money.

A full programme of 50m, 100m, 200m and 400m events are swum together with Women's 800m and Men's 1500m Freestyle. 100 & 200m events have both A & B finals.
