All about Galas

As a competitive club, we encourage all swimmers over the age of 9 to take part in galas - once we feel they are ready. It's a brilliant way for them to see their progress in both stroke technique and stamina, and the atmosphere is fantastic.  

 

Although we pick our fastest swimmers for League galas, regular Time Trial galas are open to all swimmers and offer the perfect opportunity for recorded times and PBs.

 

Galas are where Stokesley Amateur Swimming Club really comes together - where our swimmers feel the camaraderie that comes with being part of an ambitious, encouraging and supportive team.

The world of galas can all be a bit confusing at first - that's why we've put together this handy guide to explain the different levels of galas and how they work.
