Go in pool and enjoy your race.


It's how you prepare months before in the training pool that will determine your performance at the main event.  Your ruthless attendance, quality and consistency of your training will serge you forward's to a result you will be happy with!


Good Luck to everyone competing

City of Leeds Xmas Meet Entries

Hi All,
 
Please remember entries for the City of Leeds Xmas Meet (16th & 17th December) will be taken on Monday 16th October.  
 
Try and plan your events wisely so you are not repeating the same events 3 weeks later at the New Year Meet.
 
If you have already qualified for the Yorkshire's or NER's in an event then we strongly advise focusing on obtaining times in other events.   You will get chance to swim your best events at the Yorkshire Championships in February.  I would strongly advise entering the 200m Individual Medley and also update your 50m Freestyle and your best 50m form stroke for selection into the Yorkshire teams in February. 


Regional Development
Below is a link to your PB's.  Focus on racing the events you are closest to Yorkshire times in at the December Meet.  All swimmers should enter the 200m IM at one of the meets.  If you have never swum an event before try and fill as many blank boxes by the end of the January New Year Meet.  Try and plan so you have no more than 3 events per session unless you are swimming a 50 in which case 4 events per session maximum.  Thursday Am swimmers and the swimmers who I have spoken to please enter the 400m Freestyle and 400m IM over the two meets.
