We compete in three different Leagues during the season, an explanation of each is given below.

For each league we aim to put out our strongest team, selected on time, to maximise the gala points awarded.  All the League Galas have a mixture of Individual swims and Relays.

If selected you should confirm your availability as soon as possible, if you're ill at the last minute you should contact the team manager or your coach immediately, please don't wait to see if you get better.
