Competitive Swimming

Darwin Swimming Club provides opportunities for swimmers to participate in competitive swimming through its in-house Club Nights, participation in Northern Territory Swimming programmed events and intra and interstate competitions.

Club Nights

These are fun and informal events held at Parap Swimming Pool.  They offer a chance, particularly for new swimmers, to experience swim racing in a comfortable and fun team based environment.  There will usually be a varied program of formal and informal races, as well as novelty team events, run over an hour and a half on a Friday night followed by a BBQ dinner. 

NT Swimming Competition Calendar

As a registered affiliate of NT Swimming Incorporated, Darwin Swimming Club registered swimmers are able to compete in all NT Swimming Meets.  A full competition calendar is available on the NT Swimming website, including detailed meet informaiton for individual events and qualifying times where applicable. 

The Club runs time trials on a Satuday morning for swimmers requiring an entry time for particular swim meets.  Please note that time trial times are not always acceptable - refer to the detailed meet information to determine qualification requirements.  Entry fees for all swim meets are required to be paid at the time of entry.  Swimming Northern Territory does not refund entry fees after entries have closed.

Intra and Interstate Swim Meets

At least once a year the Club identifies intra or interstate competions to attend as a team.  At a minimum this will be the NT Short Course Championships in Alice Springs in May, but may also include another States Open and/or Age Championships.  In past years we have attended the SA Championships.
