More information here: UWSC Splash and Dash 2023

The UWA-West Coast ‘Splash & Dash’ carnival is the ideal introductory meet for ‘rookie racers’ who are still trying to decide if swimming is the sport for them!

The 25m & 50m distances are particularly suited to novice squad swimmers who are yet to become a registered ‘competitive’ member of a Swimming WA club. These events are not open to Swimming WA ‘annual competitive’ members.

Splash &Dash participants sign in at their own registration table to collect their registration pack and also get to meet one of our Splash & Dash volunteers who will escort them to the starting blocks for each of their events. The registration pack includes a meet program, estimated timeline and a swim cap.

The Splash & Dash meet program includes the following 25m & 50m events:

Event 3 – Mixed 8-12yrs 50m Backstroke;

Event 4 – Mixed 6-8yrs 25m Backstroke;

Event 13 – Mixed 8-12yrs 50m Breaststroke;

Event 14 – Mixed 6-8yrs 25m Breaststroke;

Event 21 – Mixed 8-12yrs 50m Freestyle;

Event 22 – Mixed 6-8yrs 25m Freestyle;

Event 29 – Mixed 9-12yrs 50m Butterfly; &

Event 30 – Mixed 8-10yrs 25m Butterfly.

Each swimmer will receive a participation ribbon to acknowledge their efforts in the pool. The ‘Splash & Dash’ races will not be officiated, which means that times swum will not be officially recognized, in accordance with Swimming WA guidelines.
