Invitation by the coach only!
The purpose of the league is to give young (but strong) swimmers competitive experience and hence a ‘speeding ticket’ system is run. This means that swimmers of Regional or above standard are not usually selected, as they will swim too fast.
The club relies on an initial team of four swimmers per age group (Open, 15U, 13U and 11U) who are each selected for their strength in at least one stroke. Each swimmer is expected to swim at least one individual event (maximum of 2, plus an I.M) and one freestyle relay leg (as well as a cannon relay leg if selected to swim this event). Races are 25m for U11, 50m for U13 & U15 and 100m for Open swimmers. Swimmers may swim up an unlimited number of events.
Team selection is at the discretion of Head coach. The age group is defined as whatever age the swimmer will be at the date of the Finals in the year of competition. Swimmers must be at least 9 years of age at the date of the Finals to be able to participate in the Series.
