Summer Sprints: Prelim, Junior & Age Group squads
Easton Leisure Centre
Saturday 1st June
Warm up 6pm, all done by 8:30pm
Despite our pool being closed for refurbishment, we couldn't miss out on the excitement and emotion of our annual Prelim and Junior galas. This year we have hired Easton Leisure Centre pool on a Saturday evening, we are going to combine the two galas into one big one, and we'll be inviting Age Group along for good measure.
Swimmers age 8 and under: four races, 25m each stroke.
Swimmers age 9: four races, 25m butterfly, 50m back, breast and free
Swimmers age 10 and over: four races, 50m each stroke.
There will be separate boys' and girls' races, with swimmers put into heats according to previous times, age and coaches' advice.
The top six boys and girls, in each age group (6-7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12-13 years) in each event will receive a medal.
No charge for the swimmers, spectators age 21 and over £4 each to include a programme.
Discretion will be shown in the 25m races, British Swimming Rules and Laws must be followed in the 50m races. The referees' decision is final.
Yes please! Family members and older swimmers are encouraged to try their hand at timekeeping, the results desk, announcing, managing the swimmers and marshalling the races. Experienced volunteers should feel very welcome to come and help. Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
