39 Kiwi Swimmers Named For The 2024 Tri Series

Announcement of the NZ Squads for the 2024 Tri-Series

We are delighted to announce the 39 swimmers selected to the 2024 Tri Series squad. The competition will be held in Hamilton, from 4 – 6 October following some days in camp as a team prior.

The Tri Series is an event that has been specifically designed to introduce young NZ swimmers to the demands of performance racing in an international environment. For the second consecutive year, the Tri Series will see two New Zealand teams battling it out against two Australian states in Victoria and Western Australia.

The meet is held across five days, the first two days of which are pre-event training days where the teams will be combined to give the swimmers an opportunity to be coached by coaches from the other teams, as well as learning from and getting to know the swimmers from those teams. The pre-meet training is also an opportunity for the coaches to work on and stress the importance of racing skills. The swimmers will have the chance to earn extra points for their team during racing by executing these skills with precision, so there is added importance in these sessions.

The meet itself is a series of five meets held across two and a half days. Each swimmer must race in 2 individual events and 1 relay in every match. Swimmers predominantly race the events from the ‘event pairings’ that they were selected in, but they will also be required to swim in other events throughout the meet. The team coaches will post their team selections only hours before racing begins so swimmers have to learn resilience and flexibility, as well as knowing they are racing for their team. There is little rest time between matches and athletes learn the importance of recovery processes, good warm-up and swim down and how important correct nutrition is before, during and after competition. 

Overall, the Tri Series is a unique experience, and swimmers who get the opportunity to compete in it learn much about themselves as well as having a great time in a very fast-paced team environment.

Swimming NZ's Olympic Programme Lead, Gary Francis, believes Tri Series is an important step in athlete development.

"Congratulations to the selected athletes for the New Zealand teams. The Tri Series format has been developed as a great opportunity for athletes to develop and race for their team against Australian states. For many of our athletes, it will be their first experience of international racing, and will be an important step in their development."
