Goulburn Invitational

An invitation is extended to swimmers aged 10 and over who have times equal to or faster than the development meet break times to enter five special events that we will swim on 3 December in association with the development and distance meets being held in Goulburn.

The events are the 50m freestyle and the four 100m events. The special events will be swum following the development meet events (for the same stroke and distance) and will be used to provide a break for swimmers competing in the development meet.

The special events are an opportunity for swimmers who are not eligible to swim these events at a development meet to swim them on 3 December. It means that any swimmer attending the development meet will have the opportunity to compete in five events ... making the trip to Goulburn more worthwhile for those swimmers who may already have a number of ACT qualifying times.

The entry fee for these special events is $5.00 per event.
