If a swimmer is not able to attend the Club Championships please inform the Gala Convenor.

If a swimmer is concerned about competing in specific events, they should speak to their coach who will inform the Gala Convenor in writing if the swimmer should not be entered into some or all the events.

All swimmers are requested to arrive at the pool by 5:30pm, ready to warm up on poolside half an hour before the championships begin.  We are incredibly tight for time so please be there on time, we will not be able to accommodate anyone who is late for their race.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact me via email  and I will do all I can to help.

Best wishes
