Additional information from Bellshill Summer Splash organisers:

Attached below is some pre-gala information which should be passed to all coaches and parents in attendance.


As per the Meet Information you may notice that we have scratched swimmers that have been invited to 1 of this years Summer Meets in a specific event. You may also notice that there may be entries faster than those swimmers scratched due to Summer Meet invites this has happened due to the times being achieved in a gala which was unaccredited or the time was swam outside the qualifying window therefore no invite to Summer Meets was given and swimmers can swim in these events.

Reserve Swims

All events will be swam on a times basis and split into age groups for medals. With regards to reserve swims, if a swimmer withdraws from 13-14 year old category then the reserve for that age group with be entered in their place.  In the case of no reserve at this age group, then we will enter a reserve from another age group.

Meet Accreditation

We are trying hard to make sure that this meet will be accredited. In order to try and ensure this happens, we would ask that each club supply officials for all 4 sessions if possible. In particular stroke judges and turn judges to help ensure that the times achieved on the day can be used for national qualifications and squads.

Warm Ups

Warm up schedules will be posted around the swimmers area and pool area on the day of the meet.

Parking at Sir Matt Busby sports centre

There are 3 car parking areas available for use over the weekend for swimmers, coaches, officials and spectators. The car park at the back of the sports centre, the Overflow car park beside the Astroturf football park and the car park in Cardinal Newman High School. Please DO NOT park outside the front of the sports centre as police patrol this area on a regular basis and please DO NOT park in neighbouring residential areas. There should be enough parking for all attendees on the day in the designated areas

We would be grateful if you could communicate the safe parking areas to everyone who is likely to attend over the weekend.
