Time Trials

Home | Competitive | Time Trials

Our Time Trials are run as licensed Level 4, at which Swim England times can be achieved and recorded in the Rankings Database.


Times recorded are suitable for entry into County Championships and Level 3 Meets.

We hold these set of trials twice a year and each of the trials is held on a Friday evening normally over two consecutive weeks. There are no regular lessons or squad training sessions on these days.

There are two strokes each week and each are swum over 50m – 2 lengths.

  Week 1: Butterfly & Backstroke

  Week 2: Breaststroke & Freestyle

Registration for each session will commence at 6.35pm.

Swimmers arriving after 7.00pm will not be accepted for entries. Swimmers should remain in the main leisure centre area until 7.00pm.

Warm up will commence shortly after 7.00pm and swimming finishes by 9.00pm (although younger swimmers may be finished earlier).

Swimmers from our Learn to Swim Academy (Boom, Lane and Sutton Valence) are expected to take part in these trials. They should try all strokes except Butterfly, although please do check with your coach or teacher before entering.

Please ask your swimmers to talk to their teacher for advice if they are nervous. We do understand that this will be the first ever ‘racing’ for many of our younger swimmers and it can be quite daunting.

Please ensure they ‘give it a go’ as it is vital for the club to properly gauge progression.
