If you live in a remote area or have other commitments on weekends, postal swims are ideal for you. You can swim in your local pool and enter your times in competitions by post or email.
These times may be recorded at your club or at other events of the organisation. These are held in WA, interstate and overseas.

Unsanctioned Swim Meets
Clubs may, from time to time, conduct swim meets that do not meet the full requirements for a MSWA sanction. These requirements relate to such things as the events offered, age of competitors, the qualification or number of technical officials, pool conditions, etc.
More information about all the swim meets and events on offer can be found in our Events Calendar, which is categorised by the type of event.
