May Sprints Gala 1
Posted by lisa on 09 May
Around 50 Sharks swimmers took part in the May Sprints 1 Gala on Saturday 4th May.
With our very own Referee Louise Maloigne in charge of poolside, and the regular army of judges, timekeepers and poolside helpers, not forgetting those on results, it proved to be an exciting afternoon.
There was plenty of support from family and friends, as some swimmers taking part, were experiencing the Gala atmosphere for the first time, other swimmers there to provide help and support.
An amazing 15 club records were broken and 243 personal best times set.
As these Galas are only swum once a year, its a great way to see the progress made by swimmers.

Interested in competing in Other Galas and don't know how to enter, or if your ready?

To enter Open Meets swimmers must be 9 years old on the day of the Meet, unless the Gala is age at the end of the year, in which case swimmers may compete at 8.
Swimmers must be Cat 2 ASA, but Cat 1 swimmers can upgrade any time before the Gala.
Enter to the Gala is through the Open Meet Secretary - Gala details and entry forms can be found adjacent to the notice board.

Inspired by the evening, Sharks do have a Masters section :

This friendly group is for all types of swimmers, from those who just want to keep fit to those who still want to compete in the pool, to the open water swimmers and the triathletes who train to keep their fitness at levels at their peak.
For further information contact Head Coach Stuart Livingstone.

Or are you interested in volunteering to help at Club Events?

Sharks are always looking for volunteers, without the Timekeepers, Judges and Referees this type of event could not happen.
A Timekeepers course comprises of two parts. An Introductory Talk (September - Date TBC) which should last about one and a half hours, then a Practical to be completed at a Gala ( usually our own Halloween Meet).
The ASA gives a guideline for minimum age s of 14 years for timekeeping.

Please speak to any member of the committee/ coaching staff for further information regarding any aspect of the club they are always happy to help.
