THE final meet for the Short Course season takes place this weekend, with several Bendigo East Swimming Club members set to compete.
A team of 10 young swimmers will compete at the Victorian Age Short Course Championships at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre between Friday and Sunday.
The swimmers are primed and ready for the meet, after competing well at the recent Victorian Country Short Course Championships in Shepparton
Bendigo East swimmers Thomas Hawke, Kate Jordan, Jarrod Slot, Matthew Slot, Anna Mittell, Kaitlyn Morgan, Kiara Verbeek, Brittany Wassing and new club members Bailey Harriden and Mitchell Sherlock will try their luck at the event.
"Swimming against some of the best age group swimmers in Victoria is a challenge that this group is keen to tackle," Bendigo East Coach Tony Rodda said.
"It is an exciting time for all and is a stepping stone for the upcoming long course season.
"If all swimmers can maintain the same attitude and determination they will certainly acquit themselves well," Rodda said of championship prospects.
