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.
