The second session of Stirling Swimming Club Champs is on Friday at the Uni!  

The confirmed entries can be viewed on the gala info page,  detailing the events your swimmer has entered. Please check and inform us asap if the information is not correct, in particular for new entrants added after the initial closing date. 

Warm-up starts at 5pm (please note: no swimmer should be poolside before 4:45pm).

Racing starts at 6pm sharp.

Note that the Club only has the one 25m pool (on entering the poolside, it is the pool to the right; swimmers should not enter the other pool).  All bags and personal items must either be stored in a locker or taken poolside, as the changing rooms are open to the public.  Any items left in cubicles will be removed.

Note that normal Friday training sessions will not be on at the uni, so if you are not competing then you have a night off!

The events are as follows:

     Butterfly - boys then girls

     Back - boys then girls

     Free - boys then girls.

Reminder: Age is taken as the swimmer's age on 31st December 2018.  Age groups are 10 years & under, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15-18, 19 & over.   Swimmers aged 11 and under will swim 50m, with older swimmers doing 100m, for each individual stroke. 

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!)

 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 and

·         poolside footwear. 

As for session 1, spectators are actively encouraged to stay to cheer the swimmers on.  There is a £1 entry fee (free entry programmes), and also a raffle.  Spectators should sit in the spectating area (not on the far side), swimmers should report initially to the gym (back right) where coaches will greet you, and volunteers (unless you are on entry desk/ raffle) should congregate behind the blocks.

Any outstanding trophies from last year should be passed to Helen or Ruth, to allow time for engraving of new winners' names.

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

Many thanks and enjoy the conclusion of the championships!
