Club Championships 2018
This year our Club Sprints (held in June) form part of our Club Championships, along with the usual longer events in September and October. There will be prizes for the best overall swimmers in each age group, based on adding the points scored from the best swim in each of these five categories:
> 50m (from the Club Sprints)
> 200m (NOT Freestyle)
> 400m, 800m or 1500m Freestyle (200m Freestyle for 8 years & Under)
> Individual Medley
All events will be licensed, including the Sprints, meaning that the times achieved can be used to enter the County Championships, Open Meets, etc.
The Club Sprints will be held from 4pm on Sunday 17th June and Sunday 24th June, in place of our normal training sessions.
This year Learn to Swim swimmers are invited to enter up to three 25m races: Freestyle, Backstroke and Breaststroke.
Everyone else is invited to enter up to four 50m races (25m Butterfly for those aged 8 or under).
NB Learn to Swim, the Development Group and Juniors MUST obtain prior approval from their lane coach before entering Butterfly or Breaststroke races.
There are also parents races (25m) and relays (teams of four, which can include parents and coaches, swimming one length each).
Entry forms are available to download from the members’ area of the website and are also available from the club’s sign-in desk. These must be returned, with payment, by Wednesday 13 June.
The presentation of the medals and trophies won at the Sprints will be on Friday 29th June, at our summer BBQ from 7-10pm. Tickets can be purchased when you enter the Sprints.
