Welcome to the Northgate Swimming Club Open Gala Webpage
You will find information here for all targeted open meetings etc. Please check out these pages regularly for any updates.
Open Galas are an excellent way of getting qualifying times, as competitive racing will produce better times than time trials during a training session. It gives you the opportunity to test your training against swimmers from around the country. If you need any further advice or help please contact me.
For those new to open competitions they are galas arranged by a host club where swimmers can pitch themselves against competitors from around the country. ‘D’ identifies which ones we target as a club – the more people who enter the better it is – get your fellow swimmers to go too – they area great day out and make all the training and effort you put in worth it !! Unlike the League competitions you pay an entry fee and make your own way to the venue – however you represent Northgate against some excellent clubs.
Northgate will pay for a poolside pass and normally one of the parents of the older children will undertake the role of team manager on poolside.
Take a look at the list – there is normally something for all abilities – some of the host clubs arrange ‘B’ or level 3 galas and events are seeded as per entry times – go on give one a go – you have nothing to lose.
