2023 Series

The 2023 TOSWA Shadeview Swim Series will comprise 4 swims with short and long distance options. 

This year the Junior Short Course events will give the opportunity for kids aged 10 to 11 years to compete the short course swims.


The series will have some great prizes from our series sponsor Shadeview, and cash prizes for short and long course series winners!

Competitors will accumulate points according to distance and number of swims completed.  To be eligible for prizes, swimmers must complete at least 3 swims in either short or long course.
