In the “Diddy League” we compete in Division 1 against other clubs in our area in a series of 3 galas. After those galas, the six clubs that have accumulated the most points go through to the Division 1 final. The top team in the Division 1 final goes on to represent our area in the Regional final.
The galas are competitive, but are full of fun and loud infectious cheering. They provide an ideal opportunity for younger and less experienced swimmers of our club to compete in a race environment. Duration is around 2 hours.
The galas comprise individual events of 25m for 9 year olds and 50m for 10 to 12 year olds. All teams are 25m with the exception of 12yrs. Swimmers ages are: 9yrs age at 25/11/2018, 10 to 12yrs age at 31/12/2018.
This year we compete at the following venues on the following dates:
The final is on Sunday 16th September, venue to be confirmed. A separate note will be sent out to those swimmers selected to compete in the final.
