A reminder to enter into ANY event in a regional meet, swimmers must be financially registered as an active Competitive Swimmer on the SNZ database. Email me at racesec@capitalswim.co.nz if I need to amend your swimmer’s level on the SNZ database for them to register. If a change is made, there will be a further SNZ membership fee to pay direct to SNZ via your swimmer’s Fast Lane account.
