The experienced team behind Champs of the Bay simply love swimming and organising events like this for the community to enjoy. As swimmers ourselves, we thrive on encouraging as many of you as possible to come along and try open water swimming in beautiful settings like this one at Rottnest Island.  After such an enjoyable 2019 event,  more fun and festivities are planned for the kids taking part in 2020.

Rottnest Channel Swim Association
Sportzcorp is excited to be hosting this unique event just for kids on the same weekend as the 2020 South 32 Rottnest Channel Swim. Champs of the Bay 2020 will be brought to you with support from the Rottnest Channel Swim Association which actively encourages participation in swimming at all levels through different generations of swimmers. We hope the event may go some way towards developing the next generation of "channel swimmers".
Other Events
Our team's experience comes from many years of being involved with iconic community-focused swims such as WA's premier community swim enjoyed by over 1,100 swimmers every year - the Coogee Jetty to Jetty Swim.
