Ross PGL League


We are pleased to let you know that CSWPC has been given the opportunity to compete in the above Junior League for the seventeenth successive year.

Junior swimmers (ie those born 8/6/2000 to 7/6/2006) will be selected to swim.

 Age is at the 7th June 2015

For this league, all events (except the 2 Cannons!) are time-banded and points are deducted if an event is swum too fast!  However, swimmers do not need to worry as they will only be chosen to swim in events for which they meet the appropriate criteria.

It is hoped that the same team will swim throughout the League, barring illness or clash of event.  At this stage, it would be very helpful if parents study the dates and advise in writing of any dates when they know their child will be unable to compete.

A Gala Selection Sheet will be posted on the notice board about 2/3 weeks before each Gala.  It is very important that children (or parents) tick for availability as soon as possible in order to avoid last minute panics when attempting to substitute a swimmer, or loss of points through not fielding a full team.

For those new to Galas, these are usually held on a Saturday starting at about 6pm and transport will be organised for swimmers, officials and some spectators.  There will be a small charge for swimmers and spectators to help defray expenses.  The coach departs from Leisure@.  The time of departure is on the Gala Selection Sheet.

Dates for 2015 Galas are as detailed below.

  • Round 1:  Saturday  7th February hosted by  Evesham
  • Round 2:  Saturday  28th March         “       “   Cheltenham
  • Round 3:  Saturday  25th April            “       “   Haden Hill
  • Round 4:  Saturday  16th May             “       “   Bromsgrove  
  • Final: Sunday 7th June 2015 @ GL1 (Top 8 teams) Afternoon Event

We shall, as ever, need help from parents in the form of timekeepers, judges, stewards etc.  Please volunteer your services.  We shall be more than happy to give on-the-job training to anyone who would like to shadow a more seasoned poolside helper.

Many swimmers will be given the opportunity to swim competitively for Cheltenham for the first time in this League.  Good Luck to you all and much fun and enjoyment with your team-mates.  I am sure we will see many PBs (Personal Best times).
