Sprint Nights are held as follows:
First Monday of the month from February until November for B Squad from 7.30 until 8.30
This means that A Squad on these nights starts 15 minutes later
Second Monday of the month from February until November for A squad – normal start time
Results are posted on the board within 2 weeks of the event
Swimmers must comply with stroke rules otherwise they will be disqualified – further information is available from your coaches
Swimmers are competing to achieve personal bests – they are awarded points for attendance and personal bests and these count towards a trophy at the end of the year (one for boys and one for girls).
Every other month the swimmers complete an Individual Medley – this is also for an end of year trophy for the boy and girl who shows the most improvement.
The swimmers should arrive for their normal session in good time with a towel and drink.
The session involves a short warm up and then the swimmers will be allocated to lanes to swim against swimmers of a similar ability to make the races more exciting.
