The Sherwood Sharks Club Championships will take place on Sunday 23 March.
Our Club Championship are not just for the best swimmers, but for all our Club swimmers. We hope everyone can attend. To be considered for an Age Champion award at our Presentation Day, you must swim at Club Championships. Awards are also given to second and third placings for each age group. All other swimmers receive a participation medal.
Times: 1.30 pm warm up for a 2.00 pm start.
Eligibility: You need to be a financial member of the club. This year we will not apply the requirement of having swum at 5 Club nights.
To be eligible for Age Champion, swimmers will generally need to swim all 4 strokes (if aged 10 years and over). Also, if aged 10 years and over, swimmers must compete in the 100m freestyle event to be eligible for Age Champion. Children can swim fewer strokes than these, but will not then be eligible for Age Champion.
Events and distances are:
6yr and under, 7yr, 8yr, 9yr – 25m all strokes
10yr, 11yr, 12yr, 13yr and over – 50m all strokes and 100 m freestyle and medley races
Swimmers may only swim the distance specified for their age (taken to be the age of the child on 23 March).
To participate at Club Championships, you must nominate yourself and the events you wish to participate in. To do this, see our coaches or registrars in person, or, you can nominate by email to them. Nominations close at 7pm on Friday 21 March. No late nominations will be accepted.
Committee members will be approaching parents at upcoming Club nights to check whether your children will be nominating. There may be some adjustments to the races nominated for (to cater for the distance requirements set out above).
We will run a BBQ to supply free sausages and bread. The canteen will have drinks and snacks for sale as well.
