Club Championships 2018
Daventry Dolphins Swimming Club Championships 2018!
Attached is the entry pack for the 2018 Club Championships.
This is a great opportunity for ALL swimmers to practice and development their racing skills over 100m Free, Back, Breast and Fly, 200m Free, Back, Breast, Fly and IM, as well as racing in all four strokes in the 25m competition.
Not only will swimmers be racing to become the 100m and 200m Club Champion, it will also give swimmers the opportunity to qualify for the 2019 County Championships in Jan/Feb next year, but more importantly develop our swimmers racing over longer distances (especially the 200's). The times gained will also give our coaching staff a clearer indication of training times during training, to make specific sets more individual to each swimmer.
Academy and Bronze squads are recommended to swim - 25m Fly/Back/Breast/Free, 100m Back/Breast/Free and 200m Back/Breast/Free over the 2 days of swimming. (8 and unders can only swim 25m and 200's).
Silver squad are recommended to swim - 25m Fly/Back/Breast/Free, 100m Fly/Back/Breast/Free and 200m Back/Breast/Free over the 2 days of swimming. Please speak to Rob about the 200Fly as some swimmers are capable of swimming this event.
Gold and Olympic Squad are expected to swim ALL events over the 2 days, as ALL swimmers are more than capable of completing each event.
Aqua Squad swimmers are recommended to choose as many (or as little as the want to swim) at the Championships.
PLEASE NOTE: Points are awarded to each swimmer per distance and event - 6 Points for 1st, 5 Points for 2nd etc. The more races that are competed in the better chance of claiming overall championship prizes.
The championship format will also give great experience to those entering Counties to understand the big demands of a our County Championships regards racing and number of races over each day, weekend and whole championships, where some swimmers will be expected to race around 6-10 events in one day, including heat swims, finals and team relays.
For the 25m competition, this will give swimmers the chance to race some super quick sprints and have some great fun as we saw from the 25m competition earlier in the year, but also get swimmers times for those distances for up and coming team competitions, and for Gold and Olympic Squads to get times to help base our 50m and overspeed training.
CLOSING DATE FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIPS IS THURS 8/11/18 - However the earlier entries are recieved the better.
Any queries speak to Rose about entries or Rob about events.
