Is the 4/17 the Aussie Trials meet? I thought they moved it closer to the WC?

It is not the Trials. Just a nationals meet.

Does anyone know how to view the Aussie Aged Championships?
Swimming Australia seem to be keeping it a secret.

Did you notice that SA is stupidly sticking to the old age groups for girls (14-17) when selecting the team for this year’s junior worlds?

Means Australia won’t be able to take the likes of Jamie Perkins, Isabella Boyd, Iona Anderson, Abbey Connor (if she doesn’t make the worlds team) and more to junior worlds putting them at a disadvantage again like at junior pan pacs.
