Updated Junior Pan Pacs criteria


SNZ have sent an email with updated criteria for Junior Pan Pacs for 2018

Attention all Clubs, Regions and Coaches

Please click on the following link below to review the amended Selection Criteria for the 2018 Junior Pan Pacific Championships (23 – 26 August 2018; Suva, Fiji).

Highlighted below are the changes that have been made to the Criteria after receiving a copy of the official event summons from USA Swimming last Friday;

  1. Confirmed competition dates are Thursday 23 – Sunday 26 August 2018; were previously listed as being 23 – 27 August 2018.
  2. To be eligible, athletes must be 13 – 18 years of age as of the 31st December in the year of the competition (i.e. athletes must have been born in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, or 2005); age requirements were previously listed as being 14 – 18 years of age.
  3. Due to the FINA World Junior Open Water Championships (6 – 8 September: Eilat, Israel), there will be no open water competition at the 2018 Junior Pan Pacific Championships, and thus all notes relating to the selection of open water swimmers have been removed from the Criteria.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,
