Summer Elementary Gala (L4) - Entries closing soon!
A reminder that entries close shortly for the Summer Elementary Gala - please ensure your entries reach Simon by close of play Friday 15th June - thank you!
Please find attached the details relating to the Summer Elementary Gala taking place on Sunday 8th July 2018 at The Spa, Beckenham. This Gala is open to the following squads: Dev 2, Blue, White, Bronze, Silver, Club, Gold (10/unders only) & Sprint.
This is a licensed Level 4 Gala with no Qualifying Times - swimmers will be seeded in Squad, then YOB order - all seeding to be based on Squad as at time of closing date. Please read all the information and conditions carefully before entering your child, making sure you are entering events that are open to them & if needs be speak with your coach.
As a reminder, Gold swimmers who are 10/Under as at 31/12/18 (so born 2008 or later) can now fully compete and be eligible for medals.
As with all our licensed galas, we need all of our officials to offer their help to ensure we meet the licensing conditions. The format is the same as the gala held in April (morning only) so won't take up your entire day but I'm sure you'll agree is a hugely beneficial gala for our younger swimmers to compete in. The number of officials that turned up in April was really disappointing and risked us losing our licence for the event, so please can our officials offer their help & contact David Ziwa or fill in the 'help required' section of the entry form, thank you!
We are still looking for someone to coordinate helpers & manage things poolside on the day - this is not a huge role! If you think this would be something you'd like to do, please contact us. The club and therefore all galas, cannot run without volunteers so please offer to help out on the day (the roles that need filling during the gala are details on the entry form).
If you'd like your child to compete in this gala, please get your entries back to Simon Hartley by Friday 15th June as follows:
email to email@example.com / post to Simon Hartley - 201 Village Way, Beckenham, BR3 3NN .
In line with the new Gala Entry Procedure all payment for entries needs to be with the club by the closing date; failure to comply with this means your child's entry will not be submitted.
