Derventio Junior Grand Prix 2018

Calling all 9-11 year olds!!

Last year saw the very first junior Grand Prix, a swimming meet series organised by Derventio eXcel, and it’s back again this year!

 

There are three events held at three different venues through September and October. This is a fantastic series for the younger swimmers who are aged 9 to 11 (age as at midnight Sunday 14th October). It is a licensed event and we would encourage all competitive swimmers to take part. This will give them experience in entering licensed events and will give them a licensed time in preparation for bigger meets later in the season.

 

There are a number of events and we would recommend that you enter your swimmer(s) in as many events as possible, even if they don’t have experience in swimming the distance/stroke. There is plenty of time over the summer for them to practice and train for the event. John will also be holding a meeting shortly regarding entering competitions, the process and etiquette on the day etc. Further info on this to come!
