2018 Brisbane Open Water Meet
Saturday, 22 September 2018
Lake Kawana Sunshine Coast


ALL swimmers from State Development, National Age and Open Squads are expected to attend.

Swimmers in Junior Squads who wish 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 at the open water event. The main focus of this meet is simply participation as a team, in something different.

There will be no training at BGS on this day.

Please also 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 13 September (afternoon session) 

This session will allow swimmers to practice swimming from a “pack start” as well as practice turning around “flotation buoys”. Parents wanting to receive more information about the event, including safety/structure of the meet – from 5:15pm-5:30pm after the session.
