Welcome to our new swimmers who have joined us recently and not yet had the opportunity to join in the Grand Prix 2018 Series.
The Grand Prix Series is a competition just for swimmers in Foundation, Development and Junior Challenge squads, with a few invites from Junior Advanced lessons. Swimmers from other squads can enter on a time trial basis but not score points in the series.
It’s a great opportunity for swimmers to compete within their age groups and have a go at competing on every stroke, on all distances, throughout the series. Everyone scores points for getting a PB ( personal best time) and then position points within their age group.
I know we’ve only just completed GP3 but Grand Prix 4 is on Saturday 21st April at St Swithuns 2-5pm.
The events in GP4 are the 200m Individual Medley,100m butterfly and 50m freestyle and 100 backstroke. I suggest that swimmers enter 3 events maximum in this round. For the younger and less experienced swimmers they need to be confident doing 50 butterfly to be able to enter the 200IM as this is 50m of each stroke. Anyone thinking of entering the 100 butterfly have a chat with me first 🙂 I recommend that new swimmers only enter the 50 freestyle and 100 back unless they have already confidently completed the 50 fly in GP3.
I have put this entry form out early as I know some of you will be away soon for Easter, so this still gives you time to submit before the closing date.
Do read all the attached information and get your entry in before the closing date, which is Friday April 6th.
Any questions do ask.
