Drummoyne Swimming Club warmly welcomes Balmain, Cabarita, Enfield and Leichhardt Swimming Clubs to the first “Battle on the Bay” Swimming Carnival.
Our objective for the Carnival is for swimmers of all ages and abilities from sociable clubs in the Bay area to participate in an evening of competitive swimming, mixed with plenty of fun and good sportsmanship. The fastest swimmers in our Clubs will be competing for the Age Group medals, while every swimmer can earn valuable points for their Club by swimming to the best of their ability to win the ultimate prize – the Battle on the Bay trophy!
The evening will conclude with the traditional show-down of the 10 x 50m Open Relay.
We have been overwhelmed by the entry of over 200 swimmers to our Carnival and will endeavour to run the evening with efficiency, discipline and fairness.
Only Carnival Officials (and marshalled swimmers) will be allowed in the Marshalling area, behind the blocks and in the Control Room.
Owing to the number of swimmers on the night, we ask that everyone listens carefully for their race call and follows the strict instructions of the Marshalls. We ask that parents assist their children in the marshalling process. If you miss your race, there will be no second chances and you will forfeit points for your Club!
Swimmers take to your blocks – let the Battle begin!
