Time Trials
The next Time Trials will be held Wednesday 9th March. We strongly encourage all swimmers to participate in time trials as points are awarded for end of season presentations from these events.

The final Time Trials for the year will be held on Wednesday 9th March and Tuesday March 22nd.

Parents are asked to attend with any swimmers as we require 16 time keepers to successfully run official time trials – along with the coaching positions of starter, recorder, judge of strokes and turns etc.

A BBQ dinner will also be provided by the club on these nights, so please bring the family along and enjoy these events.
