Victorians have the chance to catch all the action poolside as Australia’s swimming superheroes converge on Melbourne for the splash and dash, 2018 Hancock Prospecting Australian Short Course Championships.

It will be the first time in over 10 years that Melbourne has hosted a national swimming championship, giving Melburnians a chance to see home-town hero and Olympic Gold medallist Mack Horton competing.

The fast-paced action will also include many of the stars from the recent Pan Pacific Championships in Tokyo and the Pan Pacific Para Championships in Cairns; including Ariarne Titmus, Ellie Cole, David Morgan, Kyle Chalmers and other local favourites such as Jess Hansen and Ahmed Kelly.

A position in the World Short Course Australian Team is up for grabs, ensuring fierce competition in the pool. As well as taking in the pool side action, fans can visit CentreLane, the fan engagement area, which will be home to gourmet food trucks, sponsor activities, prizes and merchandise.

Head to the Arena pop-up shop in CentreLane on Saturday to ‘Meet & Greet’ Dolphin stars including Cate Campbell and Shayna Jack. Those keen to get splashed can purchase The Pimms Poolside Pass, granting entry to a new VIP enclosure. The Live Optus DJ will be pumping tunes on pool deck alongside Australian Dolphin Andrew Lauterstein and special guest Michael Klim on Saturday to warm up the crowd and the athletes.

Other activities include the curtain-raising Move It Masters Club Relay, Optus Swim Club Relays and the Super Serious Sports Swim Challenge, as well as the announcements of Australian Volunteer and Australian Swim Club of the year.

MSAC is surrounded by great restaurants, parklands and facilities creating the perfect opportunity to make a weekend trip and visit the most livable city. MSAC is easy to access via public transport. There’s a tram stop right out the front! Catch the 12 or 96 from CBD Melbourne.

On super Saturday, kids in superhero costumes will gain free entry to the venue! Buy your tickets online to avoid missing out.
