The annual Chorley and Leyland Shrimps Gala takes place on the 11th January 2020 at All Seasons Leisure Centre, warm up is 5 pm.
This gala is a great opportunity for all of our young swimmers to experience what it is like to race competitively against swimmers from other clubs, whilst in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
The gala is open for ALL Chorley and Leyland swimmers who are 8 or 9 on 31st December 2020.
The events are 25 meters in all four strokes.
A £5 entry fee will allow swimmers to compete in all four events.
Swimmers must be approved by coaches for each event and then fill out an entry form. You can find these either on the notice board or can be downloaded below.
Forms must be completed and returned by 22nd December 8 pm.
To clarify the entry form, the age of someone competing in the Shrimps gala is calculated at the age they will be at the end of the competition year which is the 31st December 2020. So, if born between 1st Jan 2011 and 31st Dec 2011 they would be competing as a 9 year old. If born between 1st Jan 2012 and 31st Dec 2012 they would be competing as an 8 year old, even though they may not have reached that age yet.
