Below are a list of the Major Open Meets, we plan to attend. We stress these are club events that swimmers should be entering and competing in. We would like to see more swimmers racing at competitive level this year. If you struggle with entry time or filling out the form, please don’t hesitate to ask.
January 7th Ripley open meet Level3
January 20/21 Rotherham Metro Open Meet at Ponds Forge
February 17/18 Derbyshires
February 24/25 Derbyshires
May 6th Eckington open meet Level 3
June 9th Ripley open meet at Alfreton
June 24th Notts Northern open meet.
September 29 6th MAD open meet.
December 2nd Derbyshires at Ponds Forge.
This list has also been compiled on a new website page called Target Open Meets, which can be found in the Events section.
In addition to the above, other Open meets may occur, but are not necessarily club targeted events, therefore no dedicated coach will be attending.
League and Local galas will be on the notice board as normal, please tick or cross CLEARLY. Also if you cannot swim and have ticked your name, please contact someone, four swimmers ticked and failed to show up at the last gala, leaving relay teams and races unfilled and disappointed children as numbers were too short to make up relays. It also makes it hard for the volunteers that help out on poolside. Please just let someone know, so adaptations can be put into place.
