Laois Marlins Dip & Dive Gala


A Dip & Dive Gala is an internal club gala that are held at various times of the year. 


They have a couple of purposes:

  1. They enable swimmers to learn how to compete in a relaxed and friendly environment of their own club.  This involves using starting blocks and correct starts and finishes.
  2. It allows the coaches assess the swimmers under competition conditions and adjust training plans accordingly.
  3. It can be used to gain times needed to move between squads.
  4. They are part of the ongoing coaches training plan for each squad and are an important part of the swimmers development.
  5. The aim is to run at least one per term.
  6. For more information please contact Padraic or any of the coaching team.
