About competitions

To enter some levels of competitions a Category 2 ASA registration is required. This will be notified to you if/when required.

There are 3 different types of competitions:

Club Championships

This is held annually, in November and is open to any swimmer who is a member of the Vikings.

Club Competitions

This is when the Vikings compete against other swimming clubs. It is a team competition rather than an individual event.

When entering a gala you may be asked to swim in your age group or in a higher age group depending on your ability and other swimmers the same age as you, in the club.

Open Meet

Open Meets are available for all standards of swimmer, from novice to senior international.  Each meet has a licensing level according to the purpose of the competition and they all have qualifying or consideration times.

The main competition each year for the club is the County Championships. This is an open meet held over several weekends, in February and March.  Entrance to the Championships is through qualifying times.  Swimmers can start competing at County level from the age of 9 years as long as they have gained the qualifying standard.
