Competition

From novice to elite

Racing opportunities for our swimmers.

For all those who have been doing dragon racing we would like to let you know what the future opportunites in swimming are.

Dragon racing is our introductory racing program that allows swimmers to get involved in an informal racing environment. This is an exciting way to advance from swimming lessons and junior squads.

Once you have become accustomed to dragon racing and inter program racing the next step is joining the Southside Penrhos Wesley Swimming Club – the club linked to our program that provides competitive swimming opportunities for our members

Mat, Nick or your coaches are there to advise you on what is appropriate for your child at their stage of development.

Below are the levels of competition that we offer as your kids go through the ranks.
