GALA ENTRY PROCEDURE 2019:
email John your entries for Open Meets before the deadline shown or sign up on the board for red galas. There is a sign up sheet on the board for Medway Galas (Kim is in charge of Medway entries not John).
Fixtures & Club Supported Licensed Meets in 2019
Red Galas - all cat 2 swimmers are strongly encouraged to enter the meets on the fixture list marked in red - an entry sheet will be posted on the pool board. Swimmers who are too fast should seek coach advice on alternative meets. Some swimmers may be too young - check the meet conditions.
Kent Development Meet 2019
L3 at Medway Pk 26th &27th October for swimmers 10-14yrs, age on 31.12.19. Events offered are all 50s, all 100s and all 200s, plus 100IM & 200IM.
You may not swim in any events you achieved a consideration or auto time in for the 2019 Kent Champs but all other events are "fair game", subject to the Upper Limit Times not being achieved. So if you only got a Kent time in 50m Fr and 50m Breast, you can do 100m Fr, 200m Fr, 100m Br, 200m Br plus the all of the other two strokes and 100IM & 200IM.
However, you can only enter a maximum 6 events in total. It is advised you do at least one 50, one 100, one 200 and one IM race to try to get in the top 5 of each age group to qualify for the Kent Development Camp in March (calculated on total FINA points in those 4 categories).
There will be a sign up sheet on the board. All but the very top county swimmers, who have multiple KQTs in many events should enter this (unless you are too old). Deadline is September 25th.
Check with the Head Coach that entering a non club supported meet directly is in your particular son's/daughter's long term best interests. There is no point in entering your child for lots of galas randomly in an unstructured way. This is expensive, may be demotivating, and will probably mean missing crucial training sessions (which better serve the long term development of your child's swimming).
