Gala entry is limited to members of invited local swimming clubs in Bradford and the surrounding district, primarily Bradford Dolphin, Bradford, Bingley, Ilkley, Aireborough and Halifax. If any swimmer is also a member of the Bradford Aquatics Training Scheme, the swimmer must be in no higher squad than Rising Stars and enter through their local club only.

The swimmers must be aged between 8 and 14 inclusive on the day of the gala to enter.

Maximum entry times have been set to keep entries within the intended ability range, so only swimmers who have current event times which are slower than the times below will be eligible for entry. We encourage clubs to complete these times as accurately as possible with your entry so heats can be seeded correctly. All times submitted are the responsibility of the entering club to be accurate and will not be adjusted after the entry has been submitted.

Medals will be awarded for places 1 to 3 in each age group 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14.

Individual entries: £3.00
