St Leonard’s College competes in the ACS Swimming competition which is held at MSAC in March each year. The College has a outstanding history of involvement and has won the title for the last six years in a row (2015-2020).
Selection for the team to represent the College at the ACS Carnival is determined in the following way:
- Results from the College Swimming Championships
- Participation and results from previous ACS Swimming Carnivals
- Participation at College training sessions
Team training is held in the College pool on selected mornings in Term 1 in the lead up to the Carnival. Students and parents will be informed of the dates for training.
Swimming training continues all year and students are encouraged to remain involved after the ACS Carnival in Term 1.
Other swimming events
The College also competes in the Victorian All Schools Swimming relays (held in March each year), along with other inter-school competitions. Students are encouraged to participate in these events as excellent preparation for the ACS Carnival.
There is also an annual competition against Ballarat Grammar in Term 4 (the Bath-Isaac Swimming Carnival), alternating between being held in Ballarat or Brighton.
