Premier League Swimming
Premier League Swimming (PLS) originated in 2018 with the aim to bring new swimming competitions to the Australian market. After engaging with a number of swimmings governing bodies, it became apparent that there was little appetite for a new form of competition and that the focus was to remain on high performance athletes. Although we continued our efforts, and the swimming community was very enthusiastic, the logistics. timing and lack of support from the higher echelons of the sport led to the team putting Premier League Swimming on hold.
However, like any good idea we knew that one day we would be back to support a swimming community that was desperate for a new and exciting format for the sport that they all loved. Luckily this has allowed us time to rethink the market (whilst watching many other new competitions come and go) and bought us to the conclusion that our events won’t just focus on elite athletes, but will also provide an avenue for anyone that loves (loved) swimming to remain competing in a fun and exciting environment.
In 2021 we re-invigorated Premier League Swimming and bought together the old team and some new members to bring an independent competition to the sport of swimming in Queensland. This exciting new format will be available to all swimmers, old and new, pool, open water, or surf, and finally bring more excitement to a sport that really needs some disruption. Being independent allows us the freedom to deliver what we feel will change the perception of the sport and bring fast-paced, team-based swimming to everyone that loves the sport.
