Bronte Barratt Shield

This event is to honour Bronte Barratt OAM, and her contribution to swimming, our local community and the Samford Stingrays Swim Club.

The Shield has been running since 2015, after our highly successful first carnival saw 270 swimmers at the Samford Pool.  The Shield is designed to be a friendly team competition between invited clubs; with an emphasis on fun and good sportsmanship!
