Please find below the Meet pack for this year’s Halloween Meet. The Meet is Open to all squads and swimmers 14 and under. Please do remember that it is a Development Meet so I  wouldn’t expect Performance 1 to enter unless you are looking to gain a time in a particular event.

Please  can you give your entries to Claire, Helen or myself along with payment by Sunday 2nd October (NO LATER)

TD Halloween Spooktacular



Please find attached the Bristol Meet Pack for your attention.  This Meet will be our targeted Meet for November.

Please return your entries to Ian, Claire or Helen no later than Sunday 27th September!

USBC Level 3 Open Meet


Please see the attached Meet pack for the Sub Regionals.  The Meet is suitable for Development 1 & 2 plus Performance Squad Swimmers who are looking to get a time registered in an event they either haven’t swum or haven’t swum for some 12 months or more. 

Can you please return your entries by Saturday 15th October.  NO LATE ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED AND THEY MUST BE ON THE CORRECT ENTRY FORM.

Please note: that we will not be able to change entry times after they’ve been submitted to us and will not be able to provide refunds if you pull out after this time.

Due to the numbers within the club,  the work involved in getting a Meet off is great.  Going Forward NO late entries will be accepted and entries MUST be submitted on the correct entry form, this helps avoid work and reduces errors.

Sub Regionals Meet Pack 2016



This Meet will be the targeted Meet for Performance 1 for November.  We will be looking to travel up early on the Friday and return late Sunday.

The Meet is a high Level Meet and if you only just qualify it is likely you may be scratched.  If that is the case then please enter our alternative Meet in Bristol being held the same weekend.
