Club swimmers are encouraged to enter galas as soon as they are able. The different types of gala are:
Club championships: This is a competition for all our club swimmers, whatever age or ability, held towards the end of the year followed by a presentation evening.
Four Seasons Galas:These are friendly galas between Gloucester, Hereford, Tewkesbury, Lydney and ourselves for novice swimmers aged 12 and under.
Open Meets:These are for entry on an individual basis by the swimmers. They are usually subject to qualifying times in order that the Meet organizers can manage the level of competition and entry should be in consultation with the swimmers coach. The club selects these galas for club swimmers to enter as part of the training programme. Cinderford also run their own annual Open Meet at GL1 in conjunction with 2 other local Clubs.
County, South West Region and National championships:These competitions are run annually; they are always subject to qualifying times. Not only do they decide the County and South West Region champions, but also act as a part of the selection process for County swimming teams and, ultimately, for the national team.
Swimmers should bring the following in their swimming bag:
