(this is a team hosted event)
Round 1 - Season 2018-19
Saturday 19th January
Stoke Mandeville Stadium
Closing date for entry midnight Tuesday 8th Jan (to allow for team allocation / event organization).
Maxwell Swim Club is pleased to announce the first Splash Gala of the 2018-2019 season. The gala series is aimed to be a friendly introduction to competition, and awards points for skills and technique while racing, placing a higher emphasis on skill development than on speed. There will be team based awards on the day.
This gala is part of a series of 3 but there is no requirement to attend all of the rounds. At the end of the season there will be awards based of individual progress in skills throughout the season and between galas.
Eligible Swimmers: We hope to see ALL swimmers from the Maxwell Academy.at both Aylesbury and Buckingham sites, along with a few swimmers from Junior Development and Age Development.(please speak to your coach). We are also pleased to invite those currently in the Bronze Academies at Aqua Vale and Swan Pool and siblings of Maxwell club members who are ASA NPTS Stage 7 or above.
Format: The swimmers will be placed into teams, supported by Maxwell coaches, and/or senior swimmers. This is an excellent opportunity to see what competition is like and be involved in a team event. Swimmers will be encouraged (but not forced) to take part in all the events, so if there is any event you think you may not wish to swim for any reason then please mention this when you book your place. There will be a limit on the number of places to allow the gala to run within the scheduled time frame.
Gold or above events: 100m Medley; 50m Free; 50m Breast; 50m Kick; 50m Fly; 50m Back; Underwater Challenge (How far can you fly kick underwater?)
Silver, bronze, pre-Maxwell events: 100m Medley; 25m Free; 25m Breast; 50m Kick; 25m Fly; 25m Back; Underwater Challenge (How far can you fly kick underwater?)
Cost: The cost for this gala will be £12 per swimmer, which covers entry into all of the events.We will invoice Maxwell members on or just after Wednesday, before the gala - so please don't worry about payment until then. Spectators will be asked to pay £2.50 (children free), volunteers free.
Help required: This meet requires lots of volunteers to be on poolside. If you (adults and older swimmers) can help on the day then please sign-up using the job sign-up button on the top right of this page. No knowledge of swimming is required, guidance will be given on the day, and it is a great way to support the children. Any offers of help are greatly appreciated.
