After winning the First Division in 2017, Perth will take part in the Premier League this year. The dates, warm-up and (start times) of the meetings and host club are as follows:
10 February – PERTH 15:00 (15:30)
24 March – MONIFIETH (held at Arbroath) 17:30 (18:00)
2 June – KINROSS 15:00 (15:30)
8 September – DCA (at Olympia) 17:30 (18:00)
3 or 10 November [to be confirmed] – MENZIESHILL (at Olympia)
Please note the dates and try to keep free in case you are chosen! All of the club’s swimmers will be eligible to take part in the league. There is no guarantee a swimmer will be chosen to take part in the league, but we will try and involve as many as possible over the course of the 5 galas.
The selected team for each gala will be placed on the club noticeboard at least 2 weeks beforehand. Please tick your name to confirm you can take part. If you cannot take part, please mark with a cross as early as possible, so another swimmer can take your place.
Bus times for away galas will be confirmed closer to time. All swimmers should arrive in plenty of time for the bus / warm-up as relay and team lines have to be handed in.
The first gala is at home, and all swimmers should be at the pool and ready to swim well in advance of the 3.30pm warm-up.
Swimmers should bring the following to each gala:
£5 (please put in an envelope marked with the swimmer’s name and hand to the team manager before boarding the bus. This helps cover the cost of pool & equipment hire, league fees and bus hire. It is still payable if your swimmer does not travel on the team bus, though we strongly recommend that they do travel as a team.) This cost also applies to our home gala and fees should be given to the team manager at poolside.
Goggles & spares.
Club swim cap (please do not use alternative caps).
Small, healthy snacks.
£1 coin for locker. (50p for Perth and it may be 20p for Arbroath pool)
The events in Dundee and Arbroath should finish at around 8pm, so your swimmer may need a packed tea to eat on the way home.
The club will require officials to help at each gala, and volunteers can travel free on the team bus if seats are available.
