Swim Competitions In Carlsbad

Youth Swim Meets for Level 5 and Up

Swim competitions in Carlsbad present the perfect opportunity for young swimmers to show off their skills and support one another. Swim meets are open to all youth swimmers level 5 and above. We group students by age for their events to ensure every participant is equally matched.

After each competition, swimmers will earn a ribbon. After receiving 15 ribbons, participants receive a trophy to reflect their hard work and effort. Swim competitions in Carlsbad are a great way to test your child’s new swimming skills.
