Club Champs 2018 Are Go !


Dear parents and swimmers

The ‘Gala Team’ are delighted to bring you details of RRSC CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS 2018!

For those of you new to the Club this year, or may have missed 2017, the “CCs / Club Champs” are a series of in-house, gala style events in which our swimmers race against each other over the whole range of stroke and distances. They take place over a number of dates in May & June and we hope to see lanes full, many heats swum, enthusiastic, friendly, competitive swimming attaining lots of personal best times and supportive parents, both spectating and helping out in various roles on the night to ensure the smooth running of the event.

The CCs are a great opportunity for your swimmer to obtain times for distance swims that can then be used, going forward, as a ‘seed’ / entry time for other galas. They may already have a clutch of times for certain races and want to push themselves towards new PBs – do check your swimmer’s times on the website

If you haven’t swum in a Club Champs before 2018 is the year to do so…! We are delighted to be able to offer not just Donyngs pool on a usual Tuesday and Friday night session instead of training, but also the competitive edge of Horsham pool, ‘Pavilions in the Park’, with its 8 lane race set-up complete with electronic timing. Do please take a careful note of which races are on at each venue, on which date; the gala team cannot be held responsible for missed races at the wrong pools.

The full programme of racing is below, but a brief summary is:
