Point Scoring Formats

Each ISL match includes 39 events, divided by several point-scoring formats. Swimmers earn points for their teams according to the following table:

Race Scoring

  Indiv. Event Relay Event Skins Round 1 Skins Round 2 Skins Round 3
1st place 9 18 9 9 14
2nd place 7 14 7 7 7
3rd place 6 12 6 6
4th place 5 10 5 5
5th place 4 8 4
6th place 3 6 3
7th place 2 4 2
8th place 1 2 1
DNS -4 -8 -4 -8 -12
DNF -2 -4 -2 -4 -6
DSQ -2 -4 -2 -4 -6

Jackpoint Points

A swimmer who wins by a wide margin can steal points from the bottom-end finishers in the event. If a swimmer beats any other swimmers by the jackpot time margins, the winning swimmer steals the finish points of the other athlete. Teams also steal jackpot points if another team takes a DQ, a DNS, or a DNF in a race.

Cut-off Time Penalties

In addition, the league will continue to use cut-off times, meaning athletes will lose points if they swim slower than a set time. A swimmer failing to meet these times will have a one-point penalty, while a relay will have a two-point penalty. These penalties are assessed after finish points are determined – so a swimmer taking 8th but missing the cutoff time will earn one point for the 8th-place finish, then take the one-point penalty for a total of zero points.

If a swimmer misses the cutoff time and gets their points stolen by jackpot, the cutoff penalty remains, but the finish points get stolen. So an athlete taking 8th, missing the cutoff time and falling outside the jackpot margin would incur -1 point for their team, taking the cutoff penalty, but having their 8th-place finish point stolen by the jackpot swim.

Prize Money Format

Athletes and relays earn money for top-4 finishes under the following system, which we’ve simplified below:

  1st place 2nd place 3rd place 4th place
Individual events 6 points 4 points 2 points 1 point
Relay events (points will be distributed equally between the team members) 12 points 8 points 4 points 2 points
Skins race round 1 6 points 4 points 2 points 1 point
Skins race round 2 6 points 4 points 2 points 1 point
Skins race round 3 12 points 4 points

Looks like CBS Sports Network is only showing Day 2 of Match 10 over the linear network. Others should be available to stream over the app. I don’t think you need all access to stream from the app but may need to login with your TV provider if you have one.

There are 2 matches today: match 9 is all access and match 10 is CBS Sports Network

I got CBS All Access but I don’t even think it’s required to view it from here (I tried going into CBS All Access channels but didn’t find it either):
