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.
Teams are usually selected from our Silver and Gold squads - choosing the fastest swimmers across each age category.
Swimmers compete as a Club, and with 5 League galas each year, it's the one we always have our sights on.
These are open to any swimmer, and we encourage as many as possible to have a go. Competing as an individual, these galas are great for experience and provide the perfect opportunity (outside of our own Club time trials) for swimmers of all abilities to gain recorded times and smash their personal bests.

Requiring qualifying times and a higher level of competition, these are the ones to aim for. We are very proud to have county, regional and national swimmers in our current Stokesley Amateur Swimming Club squad. You could be next!
