Gold1k Swim Event

Can you go the distance?

Experience our Gold1k Swim Event

A signature event, an iconic venue.

Twice a year, families from across our 5 Aquatic Achievers centres Brisbane wide, converge to see their little swimming champions of tomorrow going for gold. Our signature event, the Gold1k Swim Event, provides our little achievers with a chance to accomplish their final [distance] milestone of our Solo-1 program, the 1km Freestyle swim.

Hosted at the Sleeman Sports Complex at Chandler, kids get the chance to not only challenge themselves to conquer this amazing feat, but do so in a truly world class swimming venue like Chandler Aquatic Centre. The Gold1k Swim is held in the 50m olympic pool, with grandstand seating and a truly immersive atmosphere for parents and family members to cheer on their little champions.

The event is open to students in our Great Whites Sharks and Juniors levels, who have completed their Bronze300 and Silver500 swims in preparation. Registrations will be accepted in centre during the lead up to each event, and are not limited to those attempting the distance for their first time. Many children enjoy shifting their personal focus to improving their time, once they have conquered the distance.
