The Club Championships are run every year and have done since the club began, with extra races being added over the years.
The main Championships are run over three nights they cover all the strokes and give the swimmers a chance to swim races of different lengths for each stroke (the 9 and under swim 25m and 50m and the 10 and over 50m and 100m, plus the 100m and 200m Individual Medley for all swimmers). A swimmer therefore has the chance to swim 10 races.
The championship dates, license, conditions and rules can be found here
We have Long Distance races which are run on Fridays and Sundays and generally start in September, these are run early due to the time required to swim the races. These races are divided into 2 age-groups, 12 and under and 13 and over, and any squad swimmer is eligible to enter. They consist of the following races, for both Ladies & Men:
