Club Championships Long Distance Races

Please let Paul Willis, Competition Secretary Dawlish SC, know if swimmers wish to swim in the club champs long distance races.

Events will be 400m, 800m, 1500m free and 400IM and will probably take place around late November during training sessions.

We need an idea of likely numbers so we can allocate a suitable amount of time to run the events.

If parents/guardians could just send an email with the name of their child and the events they wish to enter that would be great.

New Competition Guide

A new document has been put together to help those who are new to competitive swimming understand the terminology used and how to enter these competitions.

Swimming is a whole new world to enter and it isn’t an easy one to get to grips with. No question is a stupid question and I guarantee you won’t be the only one thinking it.

Ask at the desk or ask parents of the older swimmers as they have been through it all and can give you a parent perspective.

The guide can be found here
