Arena League Round 3 Plymouth

14 Dec 2019 (12:00 PM) - 14 Dec 2019 (09:00 PM)
December, 14 2019


Please find attached the squad for the 3rd round of Arena League, this will take place on Saturday 14th December at the Life Centre Plymouth. The gala starts at 1pm and the bus will be leaving Dorchester at 9:40am.
We are well placed after 2 rounds so I have decided to pick as many swimmers as I can to allow more experience and reward them for the hard work that has been put in.
It is so difficult to leave some swimmers out but I have a limited number of swims in the event. Normally I would try to make sure that anyone attending has more than 1 swim but taking a larger squad this is difficult to avoid, Jo will notify those in that situation by email so you can make a decision if they would like to attend. My desire is to motivate as many as I can by being involved in a team event which we don't do that often.
