Summer Diddys 2018 (pdf version)

What are the Diddys?

The Diddys are the first time our younger club members have the chance of experiencing competitive swimming and it's held as two separate events:

  • The Summer Diddy Championships – held around June
  • The Winter Diddy Ribbon – held towards the end of the year

The events are generally for swimmers aged between 5 and 9 years old with a lot of encouragement given to all. The poolside helpers are mostly mums and dads of swimmers or ex-swimmers, or older swimmers helping out.

Swimmers may compete in 25m swims in each of the four strokes (Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly) and selection to compete is based entirely on coaches discretion and where swimmers are thought capable of demonstrating a legal stroke. The grouping is done on a calendar year basis, with separate events for girls and boys.

At the end of the evening, a presentation will be made to those swimmers who were in placed 1 to 6 across all the events.

Winter Diddys

Our next Winter Diddys event will be held on Saturday 17th November 2018. More details will be provided nearer to the date for those involved.
