Carnival Nominations

October 03, 2014 / October 29, 2014

River City Rapids A Grade, Pine Rivers Development Meet & Ferny Hills A Grade nominations are now open.

Carnivals are a great way for the kids to practice all their hard work in training and at club nights, as well as showcase our talent with neighbouring clubs.  It's also a lot of fun, with plenty of Samford team spirit and mateship.

The next 3 carnivals on offer are:

River City Rapids A Grade Qualifying - Sunday 9th November

*Entries close 20th October*

Junior Session (age 8-11) - 50m & 100m in every stroke plus 200m individual medley

Senior Session (age 12+) - 50m freestyle, 100m & 200m in every stroke, 400m/800m/1500m freestyle, 200m individual medley

This meet is suitable for any child aged 8+ as at 9 November wishing to gain qualification times for Brisbane based Championships (ie. Brisbane Sprint Championships or Junior Metropolitan Championships), as well as Queensland and National Championships.  It is equally suitable for those wishing to swim for fun.

Meet entries are open.  No qualification times are required, and you do not have to be swimming those particular strokes/distances at club nights to enter.

Pine Rivers Development Meet - Sunday 16th November

*Entries close 29th October*

Junior Session (up to 11 years) - 25m in every stroke (rule tolerance), 50m in every stroke, 100m freestyle, 100m individual medley, 4 x 50m freestyle relay.  (relay teams subject to selection)

Senior Session (age 12 & over) - 50m & 100m in every stroke, 200m freestyle, 200m individual medley

This is a fantastic starter meet for our juniors; but equally can also be used to gain qualification times for Brisbane based Championships (ie. Brisbane Sprint Championships or Junior Metropolitan Championships).  Being a Development Meet, there will also be 25m Rule Tolerance events for 11 & under, which is a fantastic way for our junior swimmers to get involved with carnivals. Samford has historically taken a large team to this meet, and it would be great to field several relay teams in the junior session!

Meet entries are open.  No qualification times are required, and you do not have to be swimming those particular strokes/distances at club nights to enter.
