I have posted the times from the Junior gala on Sunday under Gala Results. Katey and I have added comments (hopefully helpful to swimmers and coaches) with things to work on IN TRAINING and DQ reasons where applicable. Sorry to be a bit strict with the DQ's but we aim to run these events like external galas using ASA rules, although the judges were more lenient with the young 25m swimmers.
Some amazing pb's and excellent progress seen from everyone in the pool. Well done to you all! Can I add a big thankyou to all parents and officials for helping make this season go really well by assisting on poolside. Plus an extra thanks to all of our older swimmers for assisting with stewarding duties over the 4 galas. We can't do these things for our swimmers without this invaluable help! so thanks and well done to you all!
Thanks also to parents and families for coming along to support our swimmers - your shouts and cheers were appreciated!
Please don't forget the pool party on the 11th July at Bingham, 4.30 in the pool and 5.30-6.30pm in the old bar area at the back of the cafe for food and presentation of medals. Some school years were closely fought this series, so it won't be obvious who has finished in the last 3 in each age!
