We will also be looking for anyone who may be able to help during the event as officials, timekeepers or pool setters.

If you are interested please email Rachel Roe at with your name and age group by this Wednesday 19th June.  We only have 3 sessions available to train so commitment is appreciated especially if you are wanting to be part of team events due to the technical aspects.  To those that have already registered interest, thank you!
