Dear Swimmers and Parents
Stirling Swimming is a competitive swimming club and expects all swimmers to enter appropriate competitions. Overleaf is a brief explanation of the different swimming galas and events. Below is the list of all events that will be supported by the club and its coaches from January to April 2012.
The information in this competition calendar is provided so that you can forward plan. There is no need to return any forms to indicate availability. Due to changes taking place to West District events, we have been unable to put down dates for the West District Group 1 & 2 Championships. However, as these become available we will let you know through the Stirling Swimming website.
The table below outlines the dates each event will take place, the squad(s) that each event is primarily aimed at (this is for guidance only), the closing date for entries and the dates that the gala entry desk will be open for each respective event. Please note that all gala entries must to be accompanied by payment of the appropriate entry fees.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to your coach or send me an e-mail.
