National ARENA Swimming League (A TEAM)
THE NATIONAL ARENA SWIMMING LEAGUE 2018
ROUND 3 - A TEAM
NEWPORT - WARM UP 11am
Please see the attached team list for the A Team.
The draw of teams we will be racing is also attached.
We have once again qualified for the A Final of the Premier Division!! As such, it is even more important that we field the strongest team possible for the competition; you may find that there are some changes in selections for this round in order to do this.
Please therefore declare your intention to swim on the event page as soon as possible and before WEDNESDAY 28th NOVEMBER 2018. This will give the coaches enough time to find replacements if required.
We will be providing coach transport for the competition. The coach will leave from the Wessex Flyer, Hengrove Leisure Park at 9.30am, and will return from Newport at 1.30pm. Arrival time back at the Wessex Flyer is likely to be 2.30pm: we'll confirm over twitter on the day.
Where possible we'd like all swimmers to travel by coach, as it assists in building the team prior to racing. There will be a charge of £5 for each seat required on the coach. Please note that the charge to you will only cover half of the cost, the other half is subsidised by the club. There are also spectator seats available. To book your place, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The majority of our swimmers attending the competition will be training from 6-8am on the morning of the competition (Youth Performance and Competition 1 swimmers selected, please move your training on the 8th to 6-8am too). We are therefore proposing to hold a team breakfast following training at 8.30am, and a team meeting at 9am prior to getting on to the coach. If your swimmer is interested in attending the team breakfast (anyone travelling across to the competition is also welcome), please state numbers interested in the notes section when declaring your availability to swim.
Swimmers should wear the blue CoB branded t-shirts on poolside, and race in blue CoB hats.
