The Hamilton Aquatics Novice Series gala is for swimmers aged 7-12 years old, experiencing their first competition. The focus at the Hamilton Aquatics Novice Series is on demonstrating the skills that swimmers are learning in the pool based on the four competitive strokes.
There are no qualifying times to enter and swimmers with no time can participate in this gala. However swimmers faster than the advertised cut off times will not be eligible to compete at this event. Swimmers who achieve the cut off times are ready for the next level of competition, the Hamilton Aquatics First Series
Certificates will be given to those who legally complete each 50m event and therefore automatically qualify to compete in that event at the Hamilton Aquatics First Series.
The Hamilton Aquatics Novice Series will be swum as ‘age on day’ so every swimmer will swim with swimmers of the same or similar age.
