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 two strokes each week and each are swum over 50m – 2 lengths. There are no regular lessons on these days.

  Week 1: Butterfly & Backstroke

  Week 2: Breaststroke & Freestyle

Registration must be completed by 6.45pm.

You must ensure that you are in the queue before this time or you will not be allowed to swim; there is no flexibility in this rule.

Warm up is at 7.00pm and swimming finishes by 9.00pm (although younger swimmers may be finished earlier).

Boom swimmers and Sutton Valence Learn to Swim are expected to take part in these trials. Boom swimmers should try all strokes except Butterfly, although please do check with your coach 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 the Boom 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.


Our time trial dates will be announced early in the new year.
