All Fishguard Flyers swimmers are invited to swim at our annual Club Championships on Sunday July 7th 1-4pm (12.30 warm up)
We have changed the event format slightly for this year and also the entry process. All swimmers are entered automatically for all races in their age category and are strongly encouraged to take up all their races. Each race will earn them points which will go towards their team score.
Each swimmer who participates will be presented with a medal at the end of the gala and we also will be giving out a surprise anniversary gift this year to all members.
We would appreciate replies from all families by Friday June 21st to indicate if your child will be competing or not. Please be prompt with your replies as the chasing up takes a lot of precious volunteer time that we would rather spend on poolside with the children.
Please reply to Friederike firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also email Friederike with any questions you have.
Please do not reply to this email.
Swimmers aged 10/u (age as of August 31st 2019) and older Waterdragons:
4 races: 25m bc Kick (or butterfly by coaches discretion), 25m backstroke, 25m breaststroke, 25m frontcrawl. An optional 5th race of 100IM if children are able and coaches happy for them to perform this.
Swimmers aged 11+:
5 races: 50m butterfly (or 25m by coaches discretion), 50m backstroke, 50m breaststroke, 50m frontcrawl, 100IM
Each competitor will be part of a house team and score points with each of their swims for their house. There will be some bonus events where each house can collect additional points and also some relay races where double points will be given.
This years gala will end with the relay races, there will be no after party in the studio on that day. The results will be accumulated in the week after the gala and will be revealed at our Summer Fun day on July 20th when the club gala and our annual awards presentations will be made.
There are no entry fees to be paid for the gala and entry to the spectator gallery will be free also. We will be holding a raffle on the gala day though, so please be generous and bring some raffle prizes along.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the gala.
Your Fishguard Flyers Team
