Children 6-10 years old participating in Aquakid will compete on the morning of October 1, starting with a swim at Tra Co beach, then a 1km jog.

From 6 a.m. on October 1, young athletes will gather at the Aquaman Vietnam tournament venue, in front of Tra Co beach. Volunteers will guide the children to send things, put on Bib and move to the preparation position.

At 7:00 a.m., a 200m swim will start. The young athletes swim in a straight line, turning their heads to the shore. Tra Co is quiet, the terrain is gentle. Going far from the shore from 50m to 100m, the water level is only up to the chest, so it is very safe for children. The farthest point from the shore is about 3m deep.

At the end of the swim, the children had a few minutes to change their clothes at the transition area before completing the 1km run.

To ensure the highest safety for the Aquakid competition day, the Organizing Committee arranged a rescue team, security for the swimming track – running track, water refueling, referee, medical, and cheerleader service all day on October 1. They will finish at their own Finish gate, using the same transition area, swimming path and track as the adult races. Children can use specialized swim floats intended for outdoor swimming.

The support buoy system is spread evenly with many types such as directional buoys, turning buoys, some 3m long. This is a layout that not only helps children navigate the swimming path, but also helps them handle unexpected situations.

Athletes can cling to temporary swimming buoys to rest and handle arising situations. However, participants are only allowed to hold the buoy in place, not cling to the buoy to swim forward. In addition to the buoy system, the organizers also arranged about 50 lifeguards swimming in the outer ring to be ready to support athletes.
