Support Swimmers

For Events 2, 3 and 4 ONLY, we can accommodate the younger/inexperienced swimmers by allowing a parent, sibling, swim teacher or other support swimmer to enter the same event. (Eg: a father may swim with his 8 year-old daughter in Event 2 (Female 13 & under / 31 & over) and a mother may swim with her 11 year-old son in Event 3 (Males 13 & under / 31 & over)).
Event 5 is restricted to the swimmers in that gender and age group. If a 14 to 30 yr old requires the assistance of a Support Swimmer they will need to enter either Events 2, 3 or 4

SUPPORT SWIMMERS TO PLEASE FIRST TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING:

YOU MUST:

  • Be entered into another event prior to registering as a support swimmer
    • If this is not the case, the swimmer will be asked to pay the full price for the event they wish to enter as a Support Swimmer
  • Only register as a Support Swimmer at the Registration Tent on Race Day
    • No entries as a Support Swimmer will be processed prior to Race Day
  • Have the swimmer you are supporting present with you when you register
  • Pay a fee of R50 per event as a Support Swimmer
  • Wear the coloured wristband that will be provided when registering as a Support Swimmer
    • This will ensure your timing chip is not removed, unless it is your final event
