Dukinfield Marlins In-House Stroke Championships are due to take place in July. The deadline for entries is this coming Saturday, June 27th. We have had the lowest number of entries so far this year than in previous years and if we don’t get many more entries, the whole Championships may have to be cancelled.
We are also appealing to squad trainers who have not yet entered the Championships. Hurry up and get your entries in! You only have until Saturday!
Please see below for terms and conditions of entry to the Stroke Championships.
First Round is Saturday, July 4th at 1:00pm – Entry cost is £5:00
Second Round is Saturday, July 11th at 1:00pm – Entry cost is £5:00
Only children who are members of Dukinfield Marlins swimming club are eligible to take part in this gala.
Swimmers MUST be aged at least 6 years of age by Saturday, July 11th 2015 to take part. Any swimmer who does not turn at least 6 years old by this date cannot enter.
Swimmers aged 6 years old to 10 years old inc by July 11th must be able to swim a minimum distance of 25m without the use of flotation aids. This is 1 length of the pool.
Swimmers aged 11 years of age or older by Saturday, July 11th 2015 must be able to swim a minimum distance of 50m, which is 2 lengths of the pool.
Swimmers can enter just one round or both rounds of the competition.
The closing date to submit entries for the competition is Saturday, June 27th.
No late entries can be accepted.
There are no refunds for swimmers who withdraw from the competition after the closing date.
There are no refunds for swimmers who do not show up on the day of the competition.
The competition replaces the normal Junior Squad and Regular Squad training sessions on these dates.
The club cannot advise entrants which strokes will be swum in each round. This is not determined until all the entries have been submitted and the competition organiser has received them all and begins to work out the events over the two sessions.
Spectating will be on poolside. The cost to spectate is £2 per adult and this includes a raffle prize draw. (Accompanying children can watch for free).
Presentations will take place on poolside during the competition.
Older squad members will be present to help younger / new entrants, especially if they are a little nervous about swimming. These squad members will be in the water with any swimmer who feels they need that little extra support and encouragement.
For swimmers who have never taken part in a gala before, especially if they are a bit younger, can be very nervous about giving it a go and for them, this is a BIG DEAL! We ask that ALL spectators bear this in mind and please cheer and encourage these youngsters on in their swims. Let’s bring the roof down in Duki on July 4th and July 11th whilst your swimmers make you proud!
ON YOUR MARKS…GET SET…GO GET THOSE ENTRIES ROLLING IN!!
