We compete against other swimming clubs throughout the season. 4 carnivals are held each year and are organised by WASA.
These carnivals consist of both handicapped rockpool events and indoor competitions. It gives our swimmers an opportunity to achieve their personal best.
WASA stands for Warringah Amateur Swimming Association. It is the association that is tasked with the development and promotion of swimming on the Northern Beaches in Sydney. 16 swimming clubs affiliated with WASA and during the season, hold District Championships and Peninsula Challenge meets at Warringah Aquatic Centre. They also hold one Handicap Meet at one of the Rock Pools. This meet is a particular favourite of our club and we look forward to this competition every year.
This season, NLASC has been participating in carnivals all over the peninsula and are really happy with our wee clubs achievements. We have it on high authority that we are also the noisiest club and they certainly know when our swimmers are in the water.
