22nd May 2015
Members please read and digest the following important information regarding the changes to our club championships…….
The committee has decided to change the format of our annual club championships…Why?
• Current format has been in place for a number of years and it is time for an update.
• Current format limits our members on how many races they can swim and does not cover all the distances in all events.
• Club ethos is for all swimmers across the age groups to enjoy swimming, have fun and test themselves against their peers in
the comfort of their own pool, club environment and in a family atmosphere.
• Annual county championships have moved left and we need to adapt by providing our members opportunities to compete and gain QT’s in the qualifying window.
