I have received a lot of requests to enter additional swimmers into events after the draft program has been posted. No more swimmers will be added. This event is a NSWCCC selection event, not a Swimming NSW or Age Nationals qualifying meet. Apologies, but the answer will be consistent.
Draft Timeline PD Swimming 2021
