The draft read only program for the Premier Meet together with the Rejections List have now been published on our Forthcoming Galas page. Please note that this meet has been heavily oversubscribed, probably as a result of the new qualification window, and as such there are a very large number of rejections. We understand the disappointment that this will cause swimmers, coaches and parents but under licensing rules we have to restrict total swimming time to 7.5 Hours in each full day. We do have another Level 1 meet, the No Frills gala on May 23rd and 24th, which also falls within the qualification window and we urge you to enter for that meet to obtain another opportunity to achieve a qualifying time.

With all COSSS squads represented at the final weekend, the medal count increased further. Our younger swimmers had a great weekend again – well done to Georgia Robertson (9) and Annabelle Wilkinson (9) for touching first in the 200 breast and 200 IM respectively.
