A-League Galas: (Local Gala • Swimmers must be SSA registered)
This is a club gala, swum in a 50m pool.

Level 1: (Regional Gala • Swimmers must be SSA registered)
This is the entry level into National galas and gives swimmers the opportunity to compete against other swimmers from around the country. Qualifying times are found in the NMBA Handbook and are set by Swimming South Africa. This is swum as a club gala.

Level 2: (Regional Gala • Swimmers must be SSA registered)
Level 2 qualifying times are slightly more difficult to achieve. Times are listed in the NMBA handbook and are set by Swimming South Africa. This is swum as a club event. Swimmers who are 10 and under may choose to swim at Level 1, even if they have qualified for Level 2. (Age on the day of the gala.)

Level 3: (National Gala • Swimmers must be SSA registered)
This is the highest level before Senior Nationals. Times are set by Swimming South Africa and are listed in the NMBA handbook. This is also swum as a club event. Swimmers who are 11 years old and under may choose to swim at Level 2, even if they have qualified for Level 3. (Age on the day of the gala.)

Senior/Youth Nationals: (Swimmers must be SSA registered)
Once a swimmer has met the qualifying times as listed in the NMBA handbook, a provincial team is selected for Senior/Youth Nationals. This is the highest level of local competition in South Africa.
