Swimming Galas

In the swim

Every year, we partner exclusively with Speedo for our national Swim Gala series. It’s where kids aged 6-16 years old can showcase their talent. We add a drop of healthy competition with medals to win, proud moments to enjoy and plenty of team spirit to go around. Join the other 4,000 competitors and cheering spectators at the grand final to be part of the poolside fun.
