New to Galas?
Follow this link for some advice on what to bring and what to expect - however Brio are not allowing phones poolside for this gala.
Arrival Time/Warm up groups 
We have separated swimmers into 3 warm up groups.  If you follow this link and scroll down it will tell you which group you are in. Please don't enter the building any sooner than 20 minutes from your warm up.  Even the tightest of racing costumes only take 15 minutes to put on - no need to panic! If your name isn't on the list please let us know ASAP as mistakes do happen.
Please limit yourself to one spectator per swimmer.  Space is limited and we want to give every swimmer the chance to have someone watching and cheering them on.  Normally we would welcome a family day out but we are still not currently running on normal.
Face masks - Face masks must be worn by all officials, marshalls and spectators when in the building.  Swimmers should wear facemasks on entry and exit of the building and whilst on their benches waiting to swim.

We respectfully ask that everyone attending the event does a lateral flow test before hand and do not attend if the result comes back positive. If you have tested positive within the previous 90 days you should not undertake a further LFD or PCR test at this time.

Please note, you must NOT attend if you have any COVID-19 symptoms.

If you are injured or no longer wish to swim this weekend please self withdraw on Swimming Events up to 9pm on Thursday 2nd December.  After that time please email wingalateam@gmail.com to withdraw and we will run with empty lanes.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered - there is a list of roles for volunteers on the Christmas Meet Page - if you aren't sure what to do or are unable to now attend please let us know asap - certain roles are essential to the licence criteria being met.
Heat sheets and lane sheets will be emailed to all volunteers as their role requires. Please print them and bring them with you. We will not be providing paperwork for everyone.
Heat sheets will also be posted on the Christmas Meet page to be printed by anyone who wants them.
There are medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each age group at this gala. Please DO NOT crowd round the medal table, give the volunteers space and no more than 2 people at the table at any time. If swimmers do not abide by this, the table will be closed and the medals will be distributed at the Presentation Evening instead.

Filming and Photography

Filming and photography may be taking place at some of the events. If you do not wish your swimmer to be filmed or photographed please email wingalateam@gmail.com asap. If you do need to film your swimmer for GCSE PE please let us know asap (and before 9pm Thursday) in case we have had some objections so we can amend heats.

Once you have completed your race/s you can get changed and exit the building through the main doors.
Thank you
