Swim Competitions In Irvine

Youth Swim Meets for Level 5 and Up

Swim competitions in Irvine provide a way for children to put their swimming skills to the test, with competitions held 1-2 times per month. We group swimmers by age for their swim events so that they can swim with others of similar ability. Swimmers as young as two are encouraged to participate in these friendly competitions, as long as they can demonstrate that they are a Level 5 and up swimmer.

All participants will receive a ribbon after each race. After earning  15 ribbons, swimmers will receive a trophy representative of their hard work.
