2016 Club Meet Program

 

Friday Club Meets

The Somerset Hills Seals operates regular Friday Club Meets from October through to March. 

We encourage all swimmers participate in Club Nights. These nights are a great opportunity for our swimmers, parents and coaches to get together in a fun and relaxed environment.  The canteen is open with a selection of food, snacks and drinks. 

Each week events range from 12.5m (for beginners), 25m & 50m events for freestyle and two other strokes. Followed by "Special Events" longer distance swims of IM's and other strokes - the program changes each week.

The objective of club meets is for swimmers to have fun in a social environment and to compete against their own times.  Points are awarded for each swim, and are cumulated at the end of season Awards Night to crown our club champion - the more you swim, the more point earned.

Club Meet Nominations – Each week, swimmers must nominate for the club meet. Nominations open the Saturday before each meet and nominations are submitted via the Active.com portal (click here for tip sheet), email reminders are sent out each week. Nominations close Midnight on Wednesday night.

Performance in club nights and other competitive meets is the basis for selection in other weekend carnivals.   

On Club Meets, we do need plenty of volunteers (time keepers, canteen duties, referees, judges, marshalling etc), racing cannot start until all roles are filled, so don’t be shy, nominate for a job you like. Information and training on all the Technical Official roles is available from the club and information sessions will be held especially early in the season.
