Club Gala March 2016
March 26, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 6:30 pm
The first club gala of 2016 is now on Saturday 26th March at 3pm.
Entry closing date: 18th March
Alice Earnshaw will collect forms at Carnforth.
Amanda Livingstone, Vivien Denby and Steve Mead will collect forms at Salt Ayre and Heysham.
This year the Club Gala format has been changed; there will be spring and autumn galas, covering the normal selection of strokes and distances. In the summer we are planning a fun gala aiming at team races, with a BBQ afterwards.
The first Gala is on 26th March. This will have the same races for the Cubs and Otters in the Tank. The older swimmers in the main pool will swim Freestyle, Backstroke and Butterfly. The autumn Gala will be Freestyle, Breaststroke and 100 IM.
This has been done this to encourage attendance. Mark and the team of coaches would like to encourage all swimmers to participate, as the galas are an ideal opportunity to compete in their home pool, where technique can be corrected and experience gained.
If the new format works and is well attended, we will be looking at the possibility of making them into a level 4 Gala.
