Galas: We hope that everyone will enjoy learning to swim and improving their technique whilst at our Club. As children progress, some will be entered into galas at the discretion of the coaches. Consideration is based on attendance and the ability to swim certain events at a particular standard.
The Head Coach will provide each swimmer with a note outlining the events they have been entered into & the applicable fees - it is essential that these fees are returned to the club promptly.
When the Club enters Swim Ireland/Leinster region galas, it is a requirement that each club provides officials i.e. parents of entrants to carry out duties. We have to provide 1 official for every 4 swimmers. The duties are Timekeeping, Turn Judges, Director of Timekeepers and Line Up Officials.
Please be aware that if your child enters a Gala you will be required to ensure that a parent or family member aged over 18 can take their turn on the Gala Roster for that day. Don't worry, training will be given on the day of the Gala before the event starts and each slot will be for just a few hours.
