Club Champs - A Rough Guide
All Club Champs are Licensed as Level 4 which means it is an internal Meet (we don't invite other Clubs). It is a busy fun night on poolside and the older more capable swimmers will generally swim all 3 events. Please bear in mind how tired your swimmer may become as the events do run quickly. Club Champs swimmers must be in the Squads this is not open to Learners or Developers.
9+ Years compete in the 100/200/400 events with the 8/Under competing in the 50's and 100IM. Age is at midnight on the last night of the competition, the 6th of July.
Points are awarded to swimmers placed in positions 1-6 with 6 points for first, 5th for second down to 1 point for sixth.
These are in the age groups;
8/U, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16, 17+
The awards are separated into Cups, Medals and overall placings.
The cups are awarded to the swimmers in the 100's placed first in each dual age group for
9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16 and an Open Cup which is presented to the fastest swimmer for both Girls and Boys. The 200's, 400 Free and the IM's are awarded in two categories Junior 14/U and Senior 15+ again in Girls and Boys.
There are no cups for aged 8/U. The cups are very old some dating 50+ years which is why we carry on the tradition of dual age groups.
Medals are different and are awarded in separate age groups;
8/U, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17+
Medals will be awarded on the second Friday night for week 1 on poolside at the start of the evening. The medals will be put away at the start of warm up as our trophy lady Georgina Scutt officiates. Any medals not collected will carry over to the following Friday, please remember to collect your medals.
The medals list will be placed on the wall on entry to poolside with times and DQs. Can I ask only the medal winners go to the medal table please to collect their medals as the table gets very crowded.

Cost will be £1 per swim, entry will close on the Wednesday at midday for that weeks swim. There will be sign in on entry to poolside, as ever NO SIGN IN NO SWIM. Parents I must ask you respect this, if you are going to be late ask a friend to sign you in. Sign in occurs to compress the heats as we do not like to swim with empty lanes. We cannot accept entries past the closing dates as the entries are processed by volunteers who fit compiling 200 athletes with approximately 800 entries in around work etc. Although disappointing please look out for entry deadlines.
THERE WILL BE NO TRAINING ON THE CLUB CHAMPS FRIDAY NIGHTS FOR ANY SQUADS.
Please note unless you are a registered disability swimmer the age groups are set, please do not ask if you can swim a 50 instead of a 100. If your swimmer is in a squad they are more than capable of swimming 100's in Free/Back/Breast.
**Please note you do not need a time to enter Club Champs, each event will start with the NT (no time) swimmers, this is a great opportunity to start building a portfolio of times that can be used to enter external Meets**
As an end of season celebration we have a family fun party where the placings prizes (1-6) and Cup winners are awarded. The party has in the past been great fun with games, food and music etc. Tickets (very cheap just to cover the costs) will be available nearer the time. The party will be held in Crawley on Sunday 8th July and it is a fantastic family event.
Entry is in the usual format via email to HomeEntries@crawleysc.co.uk
It is incredibly helpful as with all entries to place the swims in order of the programme.
