The 2008 winter season begins on Saturday, 5th April, 2008. This year our winter competition will features three new events as well as some old favourites.

In addition to the Mystery Medley and 25m Freestyle Sprint Challenge, a 3x50m Knockout Freestyle Skins, 2x50m Handicap Relay and 2x50m Random Relay have been added to this season's program.

In the Knockout Skins, 4 swimmers go head to head over three 50m sprints with only a 2 minute gap between each one. The catch is the last swimmer to touch the wall in each 50m is knocked out until it is just one-on-one in the final heat.

The Handicap Relay consists of teams of 2 swimmers who are given a time handicap to give all teams a chance of winning the race, while the Random Relay also consists of teams of two swimmers picked by the race committee to create teams of similar speed to also give all teams a chance of winning the race.

If you do another sport during winter, don't worry, most weeks we are finished by 8am so you will have plenty of time to have a swim, so come and join us.

The season will run for 6 weeks until the pool closes on May 11th.

The Winter Season Program is available for download from the Club Races page and the Winter Race By-Laws are available on the Governing Documents page.
