Swimming Club

Competition Overview

As a competitive swimming club, Wey Valley offers various opportunities to compete:

  • Internal club competitions – Club Champs (Nov/Dec) and Summer Sprints (June/July).
  • Galas: we take part in various single and multi-round competitions against other clubs – our most important event is the National Arena League.
  • Open meets: these are more flexible than galas, allowing multiple swimmers to compete in the same event. We identify one open meet a term where we aim for a high turn-out from our swimmers to build a great team atmosphere.
  • County/Regional Championships for those who swim qualifying times at licensed events (club champs/open meets).

Competition is important for members of the club’s competitive squads, who are expected to:

  • Take part in our two annual internal club competitions.
  • Represent the club at galas (if invited).
  • Participate in a couple of open meets each year.

Competing is entirely optional for anyone swimming for fitness. We arrange more informal events for swimmers in our lessons.
