Christmas Development Meet 23 Information for Visiting Clubs

A last chance to get County Times and a great starter meet as no times needed!

This is a Development Meet aimed at swimmers aged 9 – 14yrs. However, there is a 15+ category now too!

50m & 100m all strokes plus 100m & 200m Individual Medley

Upper Qualifying times apply

Swimmers do not need a licensed time to enter but do need a time (coach's estimate is fine) to help with seeding.

Closing date for entries 7th November 2023

Early bird entry is £5.50 per race up to the 30th Sept. Normal entry is £6.50 per race up to 7th Nov 23. Late entry (if there is space) £8.50 up to the 2nd Dec 23.

Programme and Conditions

Entry to this meet is on a first come, first served basis and we filled up quickly previous years.

Electronic Entry 

Entries are made by individuals, NOT clubs. Whilst you can enter with No Time if you genuinely don't have one, if you do have them please use them or your swimmers will be in the wrong heats.

The website for the entry is: https://swimming.events/meets/335 (opens at 6pm on 26th Sept)

All information is here and gives you the days left until our closing date. It should be noted that the sign up process is a one off and for future galas will not need to be done.

If you have any questions about the entry process please contact contact@swimming.events and they will get back to you to respond to any queries. Any technical issues will be best solved with a screenshot of the issue and a full description of how you got there. We are told this is the best way for them to solve issue. 

An additional admin fee of 50p has been placed on each swimmer entering the gala. This is to contribute to the poolside passes. These will be allocated in the ratio of 1 pass per 10 swimmers. Additional passes can be purchased for £5 each. Individuals and clubs with less than 10 swimmers will still be entitled to 1 poolside pass.
