Sutton-In-Ashfield Swimming Club
The annual Splash Night competition for our beginner swimmers (those not yet invited to our Thursday evening sessions) is to take place at the Lammas Leisure Centre on Friday 17th October 2014.
The warm up will commence at 8pm sharp.
The competition will retain its usual format in that the 25m individual races are only available to those swimmers that train on a Tuesday evening in lanes 1 and 2. The 50m individual races and the 100m Individual Medley are available to all swimmers.
The cost to enter Splash Night is £3.50 whether a swimmer enters 1 event or all that are available to them. For lane 3 swimmers this will be a maximum of 5 events and for lanes 1 and 2 swimmers this will be a maximum of 9 events. This is to encourage swimmers to have a go at as many events as possible and is reasonable on the night.
See the Members page for further details.
Due to a lot of rumours and speculation the Swimming Committee would like to make a short statement regarding the County Championships 2015.
As many of you will be aware British Swimming and the ASA have put forward a full Competition review for swimming across the whole of the country. This will affect all major stages of competition from the National events all the way down to the County championships for each county in the UK.
After many discussions we have decided to implement some of the changes in anticipation of the review results. Please find below a list of the changes that have been agreed upon by the committee.
2015 County Championships
The County Championships will be combined again, Age Groups and Youths/Seniors back together.The "Age at Date" has been moved and fixed to 31st December in the year of competition (31st December 2015). Removal of the 9 year old age group and changing the 10 year age group to be 10 and under. 9 year old swimmers will still be able to compete as long as they meet the minimum qualifying times for the 10 and under category.
