Please download and read the Gala Notes below:
These contain important notes to ensure we can complete a demanding programme of events in the time available whilst maintaining safety and an enjoyable experience for the swimmers.
The Gala is very full so it will be busy, so it should be an exciting atmosphere but I am relying on the schools' team managers to cooperate to help keep the running smooth.
Please download and complete the swimmers team list:
