Queries

Do I have to dive?

No – you can start in the water, at the pool edge or on the starting blocks.

We’ve never swam in a race, how do you start?

We demonstrate how we start the race, using a whistle start.

The relay for the B competition is a Primary school competition. You can be from different areas, but you must be attending the same Primary school. It is for boys or girls or mixed and there is no age limit. Just gather 4 people, you can have up to 2 subs too.
