Open galas are individual competitions, but may also contain relay events.
Swimmers and parents must ensure that they submit their entries in line with our own internal deadline which will be communicated by the squad reps and posted on the website. There are many types of individual entry galas suitable for different levels of swimmer. Usually the qualifying times will be the best indication of the type of gala and you will be able to judge by comparing these to the PB sheet whether to enter that particular competition.
Ensure that you read the entry details and see if the competition is appropriate by checking qualifying times against your PBs. You can download the PB sheet from the members area or find them on the ASA website.
We compete in the Arena League, run our own team galas and also attend other team galas. The swimmers for all team galas are selected by either the Team Manager or Head Coach. You do not need to complete individual entries for these galas and there is no charge. We always need lots of help organising these events so if you child is swimming your help would be very much appreciated.
This league competitions is run on a national basis. We are in the "South Region" which has three divisions - Premier, division 1 and division 2.
The league is held across three galas; always held on the second Saturdays in October, November and December. The programme for each gala is the same and ages for competition are as at the end of the year (i.e. to be an U12 you must not turn 12 before the 31st December of the year of competition).
