2017 Brisbane Open Water Meet
Saturday, 30 September 2017
Lake Kawana Sunshine Coast

ENTRIES CLOSE 5pm Monday 19 SEPTEMBER 2017

We expect to see ALL swimmers from State Development, State, National Age and Open are expected to attend. Swimmers in Junior Squads who with to participate, are asked to discuss with their coach first.

 

Last year we saw over 40 athletes aging from 10 years to 45 years of age participate. The main focus of this meet is simply the participation in something different.

There will be no training at BGS on this day, as similar to last year, this event will be treated as a training session.

Please note the addition of Open Water Relay Teams!

The BGS Swimming Program will set up a tent/marquee on the day. I encourage all swimmers and parents to bring plenty of Sunscreen, Water and a deck chair.

 

We will be conducting an OPEN WATER session at BGS on Thursday 21 September (afternoon session) 

This session will allow swimmers to practice swimming from a “pack start” as well as practice turning around “flotation buoys”. Parents are encouraged to attend the information briefings about the Open Water Competition from 5:15pm-5:30pm after the session.

 

The Vorgee Brisbane Open Water Swimming Meet is open to SQ registered swimmers, members of clubs affiliated with other State Swimming Associations, international swimmers who meet clearance criteria, and Queensland Masters registered swimmers.

$30 per entry
