National Competitions

The ASA National Age Group Championships takes place in December and features more than 500 swimmers in action every year.

As well as competing for national titles, the Championships are usually the first stage in the selection process for the following season's ASA Talent Programme.

There is also a recreational element to the Championships to encourage participation among swimmers who have not yet achieved the National Skill levels required to participate in the main competition.

The ASA Masters Synchronised Swimming Championships is the only chance for Masters synchronised swimmers to win honours on the national stage.
