What do I get for my registration fee?
Where will the event take place?
The MSWA Albany Swim takes place at the Albany Leisure and Aquatic Centre.
How long will i need to swim for?
As the MSWA Albany Swim is an 8-hour event, teams will need to have one member swimming in the pool at all times. It is up to your team captain to coordinate the swimming roster, so chat to them about when/for how long you'd like to swim.
Do I need to be there for the whole event period?
No, but you are more than welcome and encouraged to stay to cheer on your team mates. Your team captain will be responsible for working out a swimming and a lap counting roster. It may be that you only need to be there for an hour or two.
When should I get there?
You should arrive at least 15 minutes before your allotted swim time. This will give you enough time to check in at the registration desk.
I don’t have a team, can I still swim?
Of course! Register online, set your own swimming goal and join in the fun. So we can allocate you pool space, you will need to let us know what time you plan on swimming, and how long you wish to swim for.
From time to time we do get teams looking for extra swimmers, so just send us an email if you would like us to try and find you a team.
