As you are all aware, the timetrials took place on Sunday 29th April 2012.
The standard of swimming and competitiveness within the club is encouraging and moving in the right direction.
A big WELL DONE to all those who took part, you all did some really brilliant times.
You can now find out which groups you will be moving into starting from Monday 14th May 2012. (Please click the timetrials link at the bottom of the page.)
I would like to point out the target times swimmers need to achieve to move into the 2nd or 3rd Groups.
As every swimmer competes in all 4 strokes (Frontcrawl, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly) they gain a total time.
By looking at the total times of all swimmers, particularly those who competed in 50m you can see there are clear cut off points marked by * or **.
* – Indicates the 2nd Group
** – Indicates the 3rd Group
(Only applicable for Monday & Wednesday groups. Swimmers from the 2nd Group will be invited by Haydn or Elizabeth to train with the last group on a Sunday, if they show commitment and promise.)
For a swimmer to achieve promotion into the 2nd Group, their total time would have to be 260.00 or faster.
For a swimmer to achieve promotion into the 3rd Group, their total time would have to be 206.00 or faster.
(Please note: these total times are subject to change, dependent on group sizes or an increase in membership. If there was to be a change, you will be informed of any changes to the promotion policy.)
