All teams lists will be on the notice boards 2 to 3 weeks before the competition. Please tick to show your availability.
There will be additional training for all those selected for Diddy League training from 5-6 on a Sunday at Catterick. All those involved have already been notified.
The Diddy League is an annual team competition in which the club participates. The gala is for children aged 9-12 and is designed to give swimmers an introduction into competitive swimming. The gala itself will involve a number of Individuals and Relay races where swimmers will score points for the club. The points accumulated by the swimmers will determine the clubs overall finishing position.
There are 11 other teams in the competition. We will participate against all of these teams over 3 different galas. When these 3 galas have been completed, the top 6 Teams will qualify for the Division 2 Final, with the remaining 5 Teams taking part in the Division 3 Final.
Swimmers will be selected to swim for the club based on their attendance and performance in training and their recent gala performances. The team sheet for each gala will be posted on the notice board 2 weeks before the gala is due to take place. Swimmers must indicate their availability to swim by placing a tick next to their name. If your name does not appear on the list for the 1st gala, you may still be selected to swim at the following galas.
The club will provide a coach to transport swimmers and parents to and from the galas at small cost. Parents and swimmers are encouraged to travel on the coach, although you may wish to make your own way to the gala.
Each gala usually lasts around 2 hours. If your child is selected they will need shorts, T-shirts and flip flops/crocs to wear on poolside between races. They will also need a spare towel to dry off after each race and plenty to drink whilst at the gala. You may wish to consider taking a packed lunch to eat on the way back!
If you require any more information please speak to you squad coach.
