Other than parents/carers acting as accompanying swimmers in the pool; parents/carers, family and supporters will be able to spectate from the spectator area and swimmers will be guided to their races by a group of team staff.

To be comfortable on poolside it is recommended that the swimmers have a spare towel and extra ‘T shirt’ to keep warm and dry while waiting for their races.

We are hoping to have a small buffet available on completion of the event, and swimmers may want to bring a plastic drinks bottle on poolside while they are competing.


Photography (including mobile devices) is not permitted in the pool area however, we will have a professional photographer covering the event and photographs will be made available shortly afterwards for download on this website Free Of Charge!

If you do not wish to be photographed please make this clear on arrival at the event.
