The Australian Freediving Association and Goldy Freediving Club will host the 2019 Pool National Championships at the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre from the 29 to 31 March. The pool is located in the suburb of Southport, north of Surfers Paradise. It is approximately 45 minutes drive from Gold Coast Airport or 60 minutes drive from Brisbane Airport. Adjacent to the picturesque Gold Coast Broadwater, it was recently renovated to host the 2018 Commonwealth Games and boasts state of the art facilities. The hosting club, Goldy Freediving Club, was formed in February 2016 and achieved AFA affiliation in January 2017.

This competition will be conducted under AIDA International rules and open to all AFA members regardless of their nationality. Registration will open soon.

The AFA is also seeking expressions of interest (EOI) from current AIDA Judges who wish to judge at the competition. If you are interested please send your EOI via the Contact page by 5pm Eastern Standard Time Friday 18 January. Please tell us why you want to judge at this competition, where you are based and any experience you have that isn’t on the AIDA site. Please note: the AFA will only consider judges for selection who send a formal EOI.
