At last, a race for the kids. Kiwi kids love to spend the summer at the beach, so it is wonderful that now they too can participate in ocean swimming - one of New Zealand’s fastest growing sports.

The emphasis will be on fun, swim and water safety, and the opportunity to learn new skills. All kids will receive coaching and training advice from a New Zealand swim team member, and members of Surf Life Saving New Zealand will support every race. What an event!

Everyone is a ‘winner’ just for completing the swim!

To enter, all kids must between 6-10 years of age as of the day of the event and/or be capable of swimming 200m competently in a pool.
