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. Since 2019, we have had great fun hosting this kids event and last year's event was the biggest and best one so far with a record number of entries. For 2023, more fun and festivities are again planned for all our young Champs taking part.
Rottnest Channel Swim Association
Sportzcorp is excited to be hosting this unique event just for kids on the same weekend as the 2023 South 32 Rottnest Channel Swim. Champs of the Bay 2023 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".
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 1,300 swimmers every year, the Coogee Jetty to Jetty Swim, and WA's best and most popular 10km qualifier event, the Christmas 10K Swim.
