Event organizer Ricardo Paris had this to say,

We invite all-levels to experience a freediving competition, get an AIDA national ranking, and maybe even qualify for our National Freediving team! We promise all athletes will learn from their fellow participants, winners receive medals and prizes, and everyone will have a fun time.

As in past iterations of the SFAC, the format for participating will include heats in Static (STA), Dynamic No Fins (DNF; short course over 25-yard lengths), and Dynamic (DYN; long course over 50-meter lengths).
