Stirling Swimming Club Championships

 

The first session of Stirling Swimming Club Champs is on Tuesday!

At the Peak, warm-up starts at 5:30pm (please note: no swimmer should be poolside before 5:15pm).

Racing starts at 6pm sharp.

Please note that normal Tuesday training sessions will not be on.  Masters and Club Squad can train at Stirling High from 7pm.  

If time allows, there will be relay races at the end of the planned events - though these will not count towards medals/ trophies, they will be guaranteed to be lots of fun!

Swimmers should remember to pack the essentials:

·         swimsuit(s)

·         cap

·         goggles 

·         towel(s)

·         plenty of water and 

·         lots of snacks too (no chocolate, as it will melt!)

 

Please also consider the following (especially  for younger swimmers who may get colder quicker):

·         t-shirt and/or hoodie to stay warm between races poolside (remember they may get wet so have additional, dry ones to put on after the event)

·         similarly, shorts or tracksuit bottoms

·         poolside footwear 

and a kickboard for your swimmer to sit on.

If you are new to competitions, there is good advice in the members area of the website, under "competitions and events" in the article "Competition tips" to help prepare you and your swimmer for nights of fun!  If you are not sure how to access the members are of the website please contact your squad rep for details.  

Please note that parents who are not volunteering may not come poolside, but it would be fantastic if you could stay to support from the balcony!  There is a £1 entry fee for adults, there will be free entry programmes, and also a raffle, not to mention a night of entertainment watching the swimmers!

There are still a couple of unfilled roles to help with the running of the champs, so it is not too late to offer your services if you have not already done so.  Just contact Ruth on the email below.

Trophies from last year should be returned at Club Champs, to allow time for engraving of new winners' names.

Any questions about the championship or to volunteer, please contact Ruth on volunteers@stirlingswimming.co.uk in the first instance.

Many thanks and enjoy the championships!
