First Gala of 2023
Big well done today to our junior team competing in the Shrimps Relay gala 2023!
Our younger swimmers swam extremely well, against some tough competition, some competing for the first time.
After a few nerves and a couple of wobbles at the start all swimmers did everything that was asked of them and came away with big smiles all round .
Although the result wasn’t what we had hoped for it gave our young squad a taster of what’s to come in their next big milestone the Micro League .
To get our junior squad ready for the future events it is important that all swimmers make the most of the sessions available to them. If you are unsure of what sessions are available to your child please ask their coach.

What an amazing gala we hosted today at Kingsway Leisure Centre! Huge well done to our Swimmers who represented Halton Swim Club in the 3rd round of the Micro League Gala.
A brilliant 1st place with lots of fantastic swims. Every swimmer gave their best and did their team and club proud!
They again stepped up in both their own age groups and the age groups above to cover for last minute changes to the team.
We were placing 2nd in points throughout the first half of the gala with only a few points between first and second place. Our team took on the challenge and smashed their relay races to take us into a comfortable 1st place overall.
So proud of them all, they were a pleasure to have on poolside and a credit to their families and club! Huge well done to our younger swimmers who were competing in a gala for the very first time
