For those new to the club, Aquasprint is a series of league galas where it’s one club against another and these galas are really exciting and fast paced and all events are 25m Male or 25m Female, with mixed 4 x 25m Medley Relay and Freestyle Relay events in each age group. The galas take a maximum of 90 mins to run and we aim to give as many swimmers as possible the chance to compete for PASC in a smaller setting than an open type gala (such as those detailed above).
We will be publishing lists of swimmers in the coming weeks and we need your commitment to attend so that we can work out the teams as best as possible. In the meantime keep up the hard work in training.
There will be 3 sessions for this gala covering age groups from 9 year olds (born 2013) and older with no upper age limit and there are medals for different age groups as detailed in the attached information form. More information about this gala will be found in your emails. The PASC closing date will be Wed 2nd Feb 2022 to allow us to collate all the entries and no entries will be accepted after training finishes on that night.
