December 2021

ABDARTES Swim-Along-A-SantaFC
P23Beverley Sports Complex25
P45Date: 5 Dec 2021Deadline: Feeder Clubi+

Phase 4

Phase 4 can enter this meet if they need to update times (50m and 100m events) or if parents are helping out and the swimmer would be at a loose end. The upper end of Phase 4 shouldn't enter this unless they have a specific objective in mind - they should mostly be too fast anyway.

Phase 1-3 and A/B Squads

A great introductory meet if you haven't yet raced in open meets. Get some times on the rankings database or update times you already have. This is an ideal meet for A/B squad swimmers looking to compete outside of Doncaster for the first time.

General Information

Parents of any Dartes swimmer competing at this meet are strongly encouraged to lend a hand with the running of the meet. The tasks to be filled are very easy and most won't distract you from watching your child swim.

Where possible, enter this meet with your feeder clubs, although there will be a Dartes contingent poolside too for anyone who's feeder club isn't entering.
