My child isn't a confident swimmer, can they still participate?

A

Not every triathlete is a great swimmer. In all races there are pool and/or surf lifesaving officials who are positioned in the water to ensure participant safety. Children are only encouraged to swim out to a depth where they feel confident and comfortable as most kids races are swum along the shoreline. Your child is welcome to do whatever stroke they feel comfortable doing.
