Eighteen swimmers from the Ocean Shores Aquatics swim team have secured berths to the NSW state finals in Sydney in coming weeks.

They will be representing their schools and racing will be in late March or early April depending on the school. 

‘The recipe for their success consists of three main ingredients: persistence, passion and committing to the program,’ coach Adrian Filipič said. ‘They are a strong-willed bunch, and let nothing stand in the way of what they are setting out to achieve.

‘Good luck also to all the team swimmers competing in relays, I really am so proud of you all,’ he said.
