EDA regularly host and run at least 3 encouragement meets throughout the year.
These meets are a relaxed and fun introduction to competitive swimming for young swimmers who are ready to take the next step from learn to swim, school swimming or those just wishing to try something new in the pool. Along with swimming their favourite events they also learn the processes involved with racing including marshalling for events, starting procedures from the blocks and what to do when finishing your race.


The competitions are held at the VUT pool at Footscray Park and with family and friends sitting poolside cheering on their swimmers it is a fun afternoon with a great atmosphere.  There are medals on offer in all events and a BBQ and drinks tent for those that are hungry or thirsty! Unregistered Swimmers, Swim School, School Only and Recreational & Competitive Club Members are all welcome to enter an Encouragement Meet.


Our Encouragement Meets are advertised on our website as well as Swimming Victoria's website.
