The Swimming Carnival is the first cab off the rank and takes place early in the season. As Brisbane Bayside State College does not have a pool facility we take our meet to the best facility in Brisbane, Chandler Aquatic Centre. We do this as well feel the best facility will promote the best completion and want to give our students every opportunity for success. Students pre nominate for their events and all names are added to meet manager that allows us a quick and reliable source of timing for results as well as times for district trials. The use of touch pads and electronic timing at Chandler allows our competitors the same facilities that our Olympians use when trialling for the national team. Times from these events allows us to appropriately select a team that will represent Brisbane Bayside State College at the Bayside District Trials that is also held at Chandler.
