AMES Sport Club 5th swimming gala information
Best Regards, Rebecca E Paulraj (March 2012)
It is my great pleasure to announce our 5th swimming gala. AMES UK Sport Club is almost 7 years old but we have aready taken the plunge into the competitive world.
The Swimming Gala will take place on Sunday the 25th of March 2012 at 16.00 at Whitgift School in South Croydon. Arrival time 15:30.
All children Year 1 and over (academic year) who can swim without swimming aids from all days are welcome. We have had to do this due to time constraints. We would be very happy if all eligible children participate and all parents, friends, family and grandparents would come and support them. It is going to be a memorable day with lots of guests and medals for the first three places of each event.
Entrance for the parents, friends and family including programs will be £2.50 (over 16 years old) on the door. Entries for the swimming gala for the children will be £2 per child for all events. One cheque or cash is preferred per family for all entries. No refunds will be given for missed events or if a swimmer withdraws from the gala.
Those who wish to enter this competition must send in their application no later than the 7th of March 2012.
Applications can be submitted either by post, e-mail or handed to Vicky. If you have any queries or problems regarding the Swimming Gala or your child's entry form please do not hesitate to speak to Vicky.
Girls must wear a one piece swimming costume and boys must wear swimming trunks. No other types of swimwear will be allowed. This is to comply with ASA competition rules.
