Every swimmer loves to race!
Splash night is a friendly environment for swimmers to get their first taste of competition where all ages and levels are welcome to enter a range of strokes and distances. The Hamilton Aquatics Splash Night provides the first opportunity for swimmers to gain times to enter future swim meets and allows our coaches to watch their technique.
The events run as like a 'normal swim meet' as possible, for our less experienced athletes to understand meet procedures, officials, rules, whistle meanings, marshaling and swim protocol. Furthermore, it provides new parents the opportunity to understand the processes, meet conditions of entry plus chat to other parents and get fully immersed in the Hamilton Aquatics swimming culture.
Race night is structured around five programs which cover all strokes and distances, with each application, swam twice throughout the year. 25m events have 'slower than' times aimed at those who have not completed a 50m or 100m event before.
The racing is fun plus it is the perfect opportunity for your swimmers to spend some time out of the pool with their swimming buddies to experience being part of a team and for parents to get to know each other.
This is a club event which cannot run without the help of parents, picking up a stopwatch to time-keep is the perfect way to get close to the action, chat with other parents and learn more about racing procedures.
We encourage and welcome all our club swimmers to attend these nights.
