2018 State Championships - Grading & Fixtures

Fixtures for all grades for the 2018 State Championships have been released and are available to download

Commences: Tuesday 17th July

The year we have a much earlier start to our competition due to WPV's bookings being set aside following a new contract arrangement between MSAC and with Swimming Australia to host the National Shortcourse Championships in October over the next 4 years

Fixture Details

As always, sorting out grading and looking at scheduling requests from clubs and teams has again provided some REAL challenges
