The IGSSA Swimming Carnival is held in Term 1 between all 8 IGSSA Member Schools and includes competitors from Year 7 to 12. It is the first big event on the IGSSA sporting calendar.
The carnival was first held in 1965. It was traditionally held at Beatty Park in Leederville, but moved to Challenge Stadium in 2009. The meet is officiated by Swimming WA Officials and the Host School.
The 2023 Carnival date has been changed to be a daytime event and will be held on Tuesday the 7th of March. Racing will start at 11.05am. There will be a limited number of tickers for sale prior to the event, and these will be sold through our member schools. Restricted vision tickets will be on sale at 10.30am on the morning of the carnival at HBF stadium for those who were unable to secure a ticket but keen to attend the live event.
The 2023 event will be livestreamed and each school will be sent this link to share with their community prior to the event.
SWIMMING PROGRAM - 2023
A detailed program (including swimmers) will be provide to schools the week prior to the carnival to be distributed to their school communities.
