Club Championships - Please Confirm Your Swims With Gala Convenor

Hello Everyone

I understand that there has been some confusion about the process of entering for the Club Championships that will be held on Friday 9th December at the University pool.

I am therefore writing to you to hopefully clear up any misunderstandings.

If your children/children has/have already confirmed their entry into the Club Championships, please ignore this email.

Can I take this opportunity to relay a message from the club's Head Coach, Kerry Wood,

Taking part in the Club Championships is one of the competitive requirements for ALL swimmers in squads Bronze B squad up to and including all Gold Squads.

The procedure for entering Club Championships

All swimmers will be expected to compete in all 5 events in their relevant age group (age is @ 31st December 2011) UNLESS they have been given permission by their coach not to enter all events.

All swimmers intending to compete at the Club Championships must confirm their swims with the Gala Convenor by entry deadline of 5pm Saturday 3rd December.

Entry can be made in several ways;

a) Via email to the Gala Convenor (

b) At the remaining gala desk which will be held on Saturday 3rd December at the university pool

c) Via the sign-up shat that is displayed on the university pool notice board.

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

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 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.

The Gala Convenor is looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible as he has to dash away to the West District Championships on Saturday also, so if you can let him know BEFORE Saturday, that would be of enormous help to him.

Best wishes

Anne Wilson
