Warm up timings can be found here

Up to date parking information can be found here.

Please note the following from Brighton SC.
We have had a note from the Prince Regent management about poolside rubbish at galas. 
They will be providing each club with bags for their swimmers to put all their rubbish in so at the end of each day the pool staff will collect the bags. It seems that in previous years some clubs have left a considerable amount of junk on the floor and clearing the mess up on poolside has taken their staff a lot longer than it should.
We don't want them to ban food from poolside at galas, so can you please inform your team managers of this and ask them to be in charge of clearing your swimmers rubbish away each day.


Please take the time to read the following important information, especially if you are new to galas.


Please arrive poolside at least 15 minutes before the start of the warm up for your session and report to your coach or one of the team managers.

If you are caught in traffic and are going to be late, or are not going to swim for any reason, please contact the team manager on 07719 076017.

If you do not arrive on time, and we have not heard from you by the time of the warm up then you will be withdrawn from the race and will not be able to swim.


  • Take healthy food and drink poolside- for suggestions read What to eat at a Gala
  • Wear your Shiverers hat and T-shirt
  • Take a spare towel, goggles and something to occupy yourself between races
  • Tell the coach or team manager if you are going to leave poolside - and parents, sorry, you are not allowed poolside.



If you are new to competition, there are some useful documents on the website which will explain how galas run and what to expect at galas - you can find these here.

If you've got any questions on the day the coach, team managers and club captains are poolside to help - just ask.


Good luck and enjoy the gala!
