Any of our club swimmers aged 9 years and over will be asked to represent our swimming club in at least one gala during the swimming season. Galas provide our swimmers with the opportunity to swim as part of a friendly, supportive team and get used to swimming in a competitive environment.
Where possible, we expect swimmers to swim in all the galas that they are selected. We provide parents with access to our SwimClubManager website which provides all information on galas and competitions with plenty of advance warning.
Throughout the year children are also encouraged to attend open meets. These are ASA registered competition events that allow our swimmers to improve their personal best times, win competitions and provide further opportunities in their future swim pathways. They are also great social events to spend time with their friends!
Braunstone Swimming Club host one Open Meet each year for their own swimmers as well as regional competitive clubs – be sure to enter these and see whether you can beat a club record!
