Time Trials:

 

Swimmers taking their lessons in the main pool boom end are expected to take part in Club Time Trials.

Time Trials are held 4 times a year. Each trial is held on Friday evenings over 2 consecutive weeks (2 strokes each week). There are no regular lessons on these dates.

Because of the complexity of organizing these trials registration must be done before 6.45pm. Warm up is at 7.00pm and swimming finishes by 9.00pm (younger swimmers may be finished earlier). So the important message is that no matter which session you normally swim you must be in the queue before 6.45pm or you won’t be allowed to swim - there is no flexibility in this rule.

Strokes are swum over 2 lengths except fly where there is a 25m option. Kids should try all swims, if anyone is nervous about this talk to your teacher for advice. We understand that this will be the first ever ‘racing’ for a lot of the boom swimmers and it can be daunting. Please ensure they ‘give it a go’ as it is vital for the club to properly gauge progression and picks for galas (some boom swimmers are already representing the club in competitive racing).

 

For future dates watch the club notice board and look on the web-site.
