Club Gala Records

An exciting part of the Club Galas is seeing our swimmers achieve new Club Records.

Championship Points from Club Gala Events

The club championships is made up of events that take place during the club and distance galas. And our Skins events are an exciting part of Gala 4. Within the Club Gala programme above you will see some events are starred with ‘cc points’. This means that particular event means you can earn points. Points are awarded at the club galas throughout the year for the fastest 8 swimmers of any age in 100m of each stroke (not IM) and the 800m/1500m Free events. The DASC Club Champion is the swimmer with the most points after those 5 events and will receive a trophy at the Christmas Awards Night. Below shows the Club Championship points so far for the year 2024.

Club Skins Event

As part of the Internal Club Gala series, Gala 4 includes a skins event for 12yrs/under and 13yrs/over. Qualification is from the 200IM in Club Gala 3; the fastest 8 male/female swimmers.

Sprint Award Scheme for Younger Swimmers

For many newcomers to the club you may not be aware that DASC runs an award scheme to encourage young or inexperienced swimmers by providing them with targets to aim at and achieve. Our scheme sets target times for all four strokes and Individual Medley at three different levels – bronze, silver and gold. If your swimmer achieves any of the times in a gala (either a club gala or an external gala), then they can buy a sprint award badge. Many swimmers choose to have the badges sewn on to the back of their T-bag T-shirts.
