What are the Dive & Try Swim Meets?
The SunSmart Dive & Try Swim Meets have been held in Western Australia for the past 41 years. The Dive & Try Swim Meets are designed to be Swimming WA's premier Junior Sport Program. The meets are designed to encourage boys and girls in Western Australia to participate in swimming with all swimmers rewarded for their efforts. They are friendly, non-threatening swim meets with modified rules and provide an opportunity to become involved in one of Australia's leading sports. The meets cater for 6-14 year-olds, including children with disabilities.
Swimmers enrol to compete in a club hosted swim meet. The top 10 swimmers (eight swimmers and two reserves) from the combined club SunSmart Dive & Try Swim Meets are then selected to proceed to the SunSmart Dive & Try Final.
