Speedo Sprint Series – Metro South West Heats

We have a team of 19 heading to Blacktown Aquatic Centre today for the Speedo Sprint Series. This is our biggest team we have had competing at this event, which is exciting for the club. The meet commences at 2.30pm with warm up at 1.30pm. We will be required to provide timekeepers so we ask for your help during the meet. Good luck to all of our team, may the Whale be with you all.
