Swim Team Trials

In preparation for the next swimming season (2016-2017), we would like to extend an invitation to all primary and secondary students wishing to try out for the team.

Whilst the trials are open we would like to highlight the fact that this is a competitive team and only the top 5 girls and boys in each age group will be selected to compete.
