Eight of the younger swimmers entered, all winning at least one medal, with Charlotte Jimenez winning two trophies and Max Rose and Stefan Jinga winning one each.

In the 10 and over age group, Max Airey set new personal best times in all 10 events, with Ashleigh Harris-Harvey and Kaleb Borowski setting nine and five, respectively.
