This is a gala run by Halifax Swimming Club and all Calderdale high schools are invited. There are 4 events: Girls Teams, Boys Teams, Girls Individual and Boys Individual. The individual events are 100m freestyle and there are bronze, silver and gold medals for the fastest year 7 or 8 boys and girls and for the fastest year 9 to 11 boys and girls. There is also a trophy for the fastest boy and girl, and records to be broken! The team events are for teams of three swimmers each doing 50m freestyle. Schools can enter as many teams as they wish with mixed year groups and again there are medals and trophies, and records to be broken. Each school arranges their own entries and so if you want to enter ask your PE teacher, especially if you haven’t entered before as the teachers may not know you are a swimmer. Entries usually have to be done by October half term. To enter you must be under 16 years old on the 15th November 2019.
