Diddy League Gala B team

The results from the weekend are now on the Results page.  Swimmers did very well with 16 PB’s on the night with some new times also, please make a note of these if your child has achieved a PB or a new time.  

Thank you very much to all those who helped out.  I understand that all went well considering changes needed making as a swimmer could not make it last minute.  Please can I remind parents for future rounds that all swimmers need to be on poolside by 6pm ready for warm up, with the correct swimwear for racing.

Round 1 is a random draw the following two rounds will be swum with points taking into account for all teams from round 1.  This was an exceptionally rough draw for the B team looking at the places the other teams came last year.

For those parents new to galas please share this with your child(ren), if you wish to discuss stroke count or DQ’s please speak with your child’s coach.

Swimmers who swam first position in a relay can use the split as an official time. 

If you have any questions please let me know, if you cannot open this file please let me know.  I will be sending out invites for round 2 which is on 13th May over the next couple of weeks
