2016 Club Championships

Our club championships are fast approaching. Click HERE to download your entry form. For all other information please go to the 'Meets' tab on the top menu.

Please note some new additions to this year's event:

This year we will be holding a fun mixed-age Cannon Relay race during the midway break. This Cannon will be made up of swimmers from each squad so if your keen to take part please tick the box at the bottom of the form to be considered (this is not classed as an event to there is no fee involved). If this event proves popular then names from each squad will be drawn from a hat.

This year we are also introducing the Coaches Award. This award looks at swimmers' attitude and effort as well as achievement over the past year. For each squad, from learn to swim through to our most senior swimmers, coaches will put forward swimmers for the award. The final nominees and overall winner of the award for each squad will be awarded at the presentations on the day.

The closing date for entries is 11th September so be sure to get your entry form in and signed by your coach.
