Swimming South Africa (SSA) Provincial Registration:

Why Should I enter my child for provincial registration?

  1. 1.The only way your child is going to improve and grow to love the sport is by being exposed to swimming.

  2. 2.To keep your child motivated, it can't be much fun swimming 2-8km an evening and not being able to gauge yourself against your opposition. If your child is not registered he/she only gets to swim one or two gala's a year.

  3. 3.To have his/her times recorded on the national database, this again enables your child to gauge his/her improvement.

  4. 4.To be a part of Shamu team, we try to create a healthy, happy environment for all swimmers, and to represent your team at gala's hosted in the Province and elsewhere.

  5. 5.To enable your child to see his/her improvement and qualify for National gala's namely Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Junior Nationals and ultimately Senior Nationals. Who knows, maybe one day represent your country at International gala's.
