Pointscore Competition 2016




Trafford Borough ‘Time Trial’ Meet

Good Evening All,

For those of you already entered into this event, unfortunately, Swim Trafford have needed to postpone the gala until next week, now re-scheduled to Wednesday 2nd March, starting at 6pm and ending at around 8pm.  James Stannard passes on his apologies for this late alternation and hopes all of you that have entered are still able to attend.  If you’ve paid an entry fee and are unable to attend, contact details for James appear below.

On the plus side, it does allow for anybody wishing still to enter to do so.  A link to print off the entry form is given below.  It can be returned directly to James via email by Tuesday 1st March (pass any payment directly at the event).

Good luck to anybody taking part.
 A Message from James Stannard (Head Coach at Swim Trafford – the borough performance swimming squad), who is arranging to take a team from the Borough clubs to compete in the regional Micro League during 2016 (a little like a mini-Arena League).  Opportunity to compete in a team event.
Good Evening All,
Please find attached an entry form for the time trial event we will be holding at the end of February
The event will be for swimmers aged 12 years and under who will be eligible to compete in this year’s Micro League. From the results at the time trials I’ll register swimmers with the league and pick the team for the first meet in March.
I’ve put an entry fee of £5 for all four races which is to be used to help cover the costs of competing in the league.
Any questions please let me know. Entries can be returned to me by email or to the Swim Office at Stretford (for info., this is located up the stairs and rather than turn left to the cafe, turn right.  You will find the swim office on the right hand side and a letter box to post entries).
Many Thanks
Swim Trafford Head Performance Coach
