Going for it

Just a reminder of the details for Gala 1 of the 2nd Division M&D League this weekend (Sunday 10th January). The warm up is scheduled for 2pm but as there is another gala on before ours this may move slightly but will be no later than 2:15pm. The start will be 30 mins later. Usually the gala will take approx. 1hr 30min to run so we should be finished for 4-4:15.

Important - Next GALA

The next Gala is our first Merseyside and District League match. This is the League we won last year so we are now a Division up in the Second Division. The first Gala is hosted by Prescott at Huyton Leisure Center - on January 10th - Warm up 2 pm.

Good Luck to All those picked to swim - we will need to bring our A game.

To swim in these Galas then each competitor needs to be ASA Registered.

ASA Registration runs from January to December so 2016 Registration - when all the MDJSL galas are - is due January
