It has been agreed that to finish off the 16/17 season with some fast swimming, that National Squad swimmers will be asked to enter Chesterfield’s Summer Splash on 16/17 July. Those hoping to get to Nationals should enter just in case but this will be reviewed nearer the time whether they compete here or not.
Entries are first come, first served for this meet so please can you send entries to Kirsty no later than Wednesday 26th April 2017 with ref SURNAME CHESTER for bank details. . Please note that there are upper time limits on all events. Entries are £5.00 per event plus the £2 per swimmer club charge.
We will also be entering the DX Summer Sprint event on 1st July 2017. This is a one day sprint meet. IMPORTANT NOTICE – Swimmers will be expected to travel as a team on the train from Derby with coach and TM’s without parents attending. This is an important part of the learning process of independence and sets us up for meets in the future. Train time and meeting time will be shared nearer the date but the cost of this will be roughly £7 each way.
Please can you also send entries for DX to Kirsty no later than Wednesday 26th April 2017 with ref SURNAME DX. Entries are £6.00 per event plus the £1 per swimmer club charge for the single day.
Those swimmers that are entering Open Water Midlands on July 2nd 2017 should enter directly using the below link. Happy to discuss option of DX meet on an individual basis – please let me know when you have entered this so I know who is swimming!
Those wishing to enter Welsh Nationals should still do so and can speak to Ryan about this. We will support them through this and encourage the experience to swim in a National competition too!
Let’s make a difference and swim fast!!!
