ATTENTION ALL SWIMMERS AND SWIMMERS' FAMILIES

As previously announced, our Club Champs will take place on Tuesday 21st and 28th November 2017.

Club Champs are held annually for swimmers in Club, Disability, Junior Development, Development, Potential, JPS, SPS and Masters squads.  

Both sessions, held at the Peak, will have Warm Up starting at 5.30pm.

For those children new to the club, this is a fantastic opportunity for swimmers to gain gala experience before our graded meet in January, even swimming in the very same pool!  And for our older swimmers, this is a great chance to demonstrate their new skills gained this year. 

Remember, the Club Champs will be run slightly differently to previous year's.  They will resemble a gala more closely e.g. the gala desk will be in touch soon regarding entry to the Club Champs, and swimmers may be disqualified, depending on their age and the infringement.  We will require all hands-on-deck for STOs - an email recently went out to all timekeepers and judges, so if you are qualified and did not receive it please email volunteers@stirlingswimming.co.uk with your details.

The programme of events is as follows:

Tuesday 21st November 2017

Girls 100 IM (all age groups)

Boys 100 IM (all age groups)

Girls 50 Breaststroke (10 & Under, 11 Years)

Girls 50 Freestyle (10 & Under, 11 Years)

Girls 100 Freestyle (12, 13, 14, 15-18, 19 & Over)

Note: Age is taken as the swimmer's age on 31st December 2017.

If time allows, there may be additional events added at the end of each session e.g. relays, involving all swimmers. These will not officially be part of the championships overall points, just a bit of fun.  With using the gala entry desk system, we will know in advance who is swimming in which events, so you will know beforehand whether these additional events will be run or not.  Note that a closing date for the Club Champs will be set, and therefore no late entries will be allowed.  Also, the cost of entering Club Champs is £7.50 (irrespective of the number of events entered); this will be added to the "Outstanding Gala Fees" account balance.

At our annual ceilidh on 25th Feb 2018, medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each event/ age group will be presented, with trophies to the new overall age group girls/ boys winners.

Please look out for the request for entries from the gala desk in the next couple of weeks!

I have replaced Sheena McCall as the STO Convenor (STO = Swimming Technical Official).  

If you are a timekeeper (even if you are newly qualified and have never officiated at a gala), judge, or referee AND have not responded to the Contact Details email sent out a few days ago, please send an email to volunteers@stirlingswimming.co.uk with your name and the details of your swimmer(s) - name and squad will suffice.

If you are interested in becoming an official, then I plan to run another timekeepers course in March (depending on numbers).  If you would like your name added to the list of possibles, then please drop me an email at volunteers@stirlingswimming.co.uk

Looking forward to working with you all.
