2019 National Championships

The National Championships is the premier event on the Masters Swimming Australia calendar.

The 2019 MSA National Championships will be held in Adelaide from 19-23 March at SA Aquatic & Leisure Centre, Oaklands Park, one of Australia’s leading aquatic facilities. The focus of our event will be on the “Swimming” but this does not mean that Adelaide doesn’t know how to honour the “Fitness, Friendship and Fun”, with the Welcome function, Happy Hours at the end of each session at the Pool, and the Presentation Dinner to be held at the Grand Hotel on the Glenelg foreshore.

The Welcome Function will be held at the Function Room over-looking the pool on Monday 18 March where you will be able to catch up with all the swimmers you have come to know and love from the Masters Swimming Community. So after you have registered, collected you Welcome Pack and checked out the merchandise, you will have Welcome Function ticket in hand and head up for a drink!

Every registered swimmer and non-swimming Official will receive a FREE Welcome Pack containing 2019 MSA National Championships branded items from our Clothing & Apparel Event Partner, Fullhammer.
Each Welcome Pack includes:  Vorgee Elite Mesh Bag, Vorgee Swim Cap (Silver/Black), Channel Nine Drink Bottle, Reusable Coffee Mug  and sponsor promotional material.

Day 1 of competition launches with the 800m Freestyle in the main pool, followed by the Opening Ceremony.

After 4 days at the Pool, if you think you will still have some strength left, you can compete in the Open Water Swim at Brighton Beach where you have the option of 1km or 3km swim. This will be followed by the Presentation Dinner that night at the Grand where everyone will be dressed to the nines to celebrate all the achievements with friends. The dinner will be a 3 course seated meal.
