2018 Hancock Prospecting Australian Short Course Championships

Get ready to see Australia’s swimming superheroes conquer the super short pool at the Hancock Prospecting Australian Short Course Championships this October 25-27.
The Dolphins will return to the Melbourne Sports & Aquatic Centre (MSAC) for the first time in over a decade for the fast and furious 25 metre short course format. This national selection event will earn them a place on the team heading to China for the World Short Course Championships in December.
Melbourne’s own Mack Horton will have the home town support as he takes to the starting blocks of his home base at MSAC. The fast-paced action will also include many of the stars from the recent Pan Pacific and Para Pan Pacific Championships in Tokyo and Cairns; including Ariarne Titmus, Ellie Cole and Kyle Chalmers and other favourites Jess Hansen, Ahmed Kelly and David Morgan.
Over three days and nights, experience world-class racing poolside as you cheer on the best swimmers in the country, relax in Centre Lane, jump into the action at the Optus fan zone, get up-close to swimming heroes at the meet and greets, or indulge with gourmet food trucks.
Heats tickets start from $8 for kids and $10 for adults, finals tickets start from $10 for kids and $20 for adults, family tickets start from $20. On super Saturday, kids in superhero costumes will gain free entry to the venue.
