Additional Information

  • All races will compete over the short course format (25m)
  • As part of the registration process, each participant will need to nominate event times to enable organisers to seed each competitor in heats. Entries without times will be seeded in the slowest heat.
  • Participants may enter a maximum of four (4) events per day (excluding relays) and up to a total of eight (8) events for the duration of the games.
  • Participants may be limited to fewer events if the number of entries is high.
  • To ensure the swimming program meets pool space availability times, the organisers reserve the right to cap the number of entries for each event. If a cap on entries is required, the affected athletes will be advised of the change to their program as soon as it’s possible.
  • All relay team members must have entered at least one individual swimming event. Please note:  Relay teams can be entered on the day of competition and will not be available to be entered during the registration process
