FIXTURES 2018/2019

This may be subject to change and further galas and information will be added when details are known.

Please remember that if you want to compete in a gala you must have upgraded to Category 2 membership of Swim England. If in any doubt, please email the membership secretary or speak to a volunteer on the front desk on a Friday night at the King Alfred.

The coaching staff would like to emphasise that swimmers should never enter a gala which is not scheduled in the Club’s competition programme, as shown in the Fixture list above, unless they are advised to by the Head Coach.

Levels of Gala

Galas are licensed at levels 1,2,3 and 4. The level of a gala is an indication of the standard required to enter that gala – level 1 being the hardest, level 4 suitable for those new to competition.

Times achieved at a licensed gala will be entered onto the British Swimming database.

Team Galas are unlicensed with the exception of the National Arena League which is licensed at level 2.

Level 1 & 2 – times achieved at these galas allow you to compete at Counties, Regional, National and British Championship level.  Suitable for experienced, Competitive Squad swimmers only.

Level 3 – times achieved at level 3 galas allow you to compete at County and Regional level, but not National. Suitable for all Squad swimmers from Tigers to Performance.

Level 4 – all level 4 galas are internal to the host club and suit all Club swimmers, including those trying competition for the first time – for example the Shiverers Club Championships and Shiverers Development Meet.  Times achieved at level 4 galas allow you to enter the County and Regional Championships, but NOT National or British Championships.
