18th April – Stretford Leisure Centre
A must enter gala for all eligible members of our swimming club.
Email sent to all members –
Myself and Tom Pope have organised a level 4 licensed meet (license pending) on the 18th April 2020.
The purpose of this competition is to enable all swimmers of both clubs the opportunity to gain competitive experience and licensed times in a month/time of year when no other competitions are available to swimmers unless they are at a Regional competition level.
This competition is open to all members who are 14 or under and have not achieved any regional qualifying times.
The competition will consist of 50m races over all strokes. To make it interesting, after the heats have been swam, the fastest 4 swimmers from each club/in each age group will swim a head to head relay race against the other club to try and score points. At the end of the night, the club with the most points achieved will be victorious.
To keep costs minimal, there will be no medals or awards except for the overall club winner. The £2 entry fee goes towards the cost of pool hire and the license levy.
Please find attached the gala conditions and entry form.
Please return to myself (Philip Ramsbottom) before the closing date.
This competition is perfect for anyone new to competition all the way through to swimmers aiming to qualify for Regional Championships 2021.
P.S For those too old or too fast to enter, please come and volunteer as Marshalls/timekeepers/poolside helpers
