Swimming Australia confirms 2020 Events Calendar

08 December 2019

Swimming Australia has confirmed that the Hancock Prospecting Australian Swimming Championships will take place at Perth’s HBF Stadium, Claremont Pool, in April 2020, with the Hancock Prospecting Australian Swimming Trials to be held in Adelaide later in the year.

Providing additional high-quality racing ahead of the trials event in June, athletes will head west to compete for Australian titles between 17-21 April following the Hancock Prospecting Australian Age Championships.

In keeping with the high-performance philosophy to hold trials five weeks out from benchmark events, athletes will compete for spots on the Australian Olympic and Paralympic team at the SA Aquatic & Leisure Centre from 14-19 June.

With such high stakes on the line, there’s no doubt there’ll be a buzz around Adelaide as the best of the best travel to South Australia for the most highly anticipated and pinnacle event on swimming’s calendar in the lead up to the Games.

Swimming Australia Chief Executive Leigh Russell said she was looking forward to seeing both events unfold in what will be a huge year for Australian swimming in 2020.

“We’re delighted to provide our athletes, coaches and fans with two high quality events in different corners of our country next year – it’s the perfect precursor for our athletes as they strive to make the Australian Olympic and Paralympic team,” Russell said.

“I know Perth will be a terrific host for both our Hancock Prospecting Australian Age Championships and Hancock Prospecting Australian Swimming Championships, and there’s no question regarding the calibre of racing we’ll witness as our athletes ramp up their preparation for trials in June.

“We know Adelaide always puts on a great show whenever swimming comes to town and all eyes will be on South Australia as they host our blue-ribbon event next year. Dreams will be made and the atmosphere will be electric, so it’s an event not to be missed.

“I would like to thank South Australian Tourism Commission and Tourism Western Australia for their support of swimming, we truly value their relationships and look forward to working with them on an exciting seven months ahead.”
