Swimming

The PDSSSC gives all students the access to their level of competition for swimming.


Every school has its own swimming carnival as an annual event. These cater for the serious swimmers as well as novelty and fun events to encourage participation by all students. These events are great to foster school spirit and a chance for the school community to come together as one.

Swimming Overview

I have received a lot of requests to enter additional swimmers into events after the draft program has been posted. No more swimmers will be added. This event is a NSWCCC selection event, not a Swimming NSW or Age Nationals qualifying meet. Apologies, but the answer will be consistent.
