Swimmers of all levels were able to gauge their abilities at the Northern regional swimming championships at Launceston Aquatic Centre on Sunday.
Launceston Aquatic, South Esk, Burnie and Cradle Coast clubs all took part.
Swimming Tasmania chief executive Jamie McIntyre said it was great to be back in the water after the championships were cancelled in 2020 due to COVID.
"It's really about getting the middle-of-the-road kids an opportunity to get some times and see how they're going," he said.
"There's many kids who haven't got medals before getting them and a lot of best times."
Launceston Aquatic Club coach Peter Tonkin said particularly the younger swimmers from his club had a good day.
"We got a lot of personal bests among them," he said.
"Our older swimmers are swimming to what they did at the states about a month ago. We've got six swimmers who are getting ready to compete at age nationals - three in eights, three in open."
He, and South Esk coach Ketrina Clarke said the relays were always a show of friendly competition between the two Launceston-based clubs.
"We've got a strong cohort of swimmers across most age groups ... I think we've won a majority of the relay swims that were held in the morning," Clarke said.
