It’s fun. It’s fast. It’s furious. It’s BACK!

After delaying the original season due to COVID-19, Swimming NSW is pleased to announce a new competition schedule for Swim League 2020.

In total, 10 gala days across Sydney, regional NSW and ACT have been scheduled for the modified season, providing plenty of options to get swimmers back to racing in a fun setting.

The thrilling 60-minute competition format offers an entertaining team-based alternative to traditional swim meets that is shorter, less structured, and gives swimmers of all ages and abilities the opportunity to develop their aquatic skills in a fun, fast and furious sporting environment.

With no QTs, no technical officials, no pressure, Swim League is the ideal re-introduction to competitive swimming and the perfect opportunity for young swimmers to get their feet back on the blocks. If you love to swim, love to compete and enjoy being part of a team (while having a bucketload of fun, of course), then this is the competition for you!

What’s new?

Gala days will now be held in Metro South, Metro North and Coast and Valley, replacing the Series Leagues that were originally scheduled for these regions. There are new dates and additional venues for gala days in Southern and Northern NSW. A regional winner will be crowned at each gala day.

Swimmers who purchased an original Swim League registration will be able to transfer their registration to one or more of the new dates. Swimmers can enter any gala day, and as many gala days as they choose. And, they do not need to be a member of a club from that area. The cost for each gala day is $35.

There will be Junior (9-12 years) and Senior divisions (13 years +) for each gala day event, as well as divisions that cater for all swimming abilities.
