7. BASKET HANDLING AT AUSTRALIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS


BAROSSA swimming club has been assigned basket handling duties on night 4 (SAT) 21/05/2022 of the upcoming AUS swimming champs.

Our club has been asked to provide 6 swimmers (minimum age 10yrs). Swimmers will be required at the venue SAALC (Marion) from 4:30pm – 8:30pm.

This is a fantastic opportunity for our swimmers to get up close and personal (to carry the bags and perhaps snag an autograph) of some of our Olympians and greatest current champions of our sport.

One parent per swimmer will receive a spectator ticket to the session.

The first 6 swimmers to respond will be assigned as Barossa’s representative basket handlers at these championships. There are three spots still remaining.
