About Swim Competitions

We are an ASA affiliated competitive swimming club, so all our training is geared towards competitions and competing. There are many different levels of competition which, when you are new to competitive swimming, can all seem quite confusing. In the Competition pages of this site we try and demystify things a little. If, after looking through these pages, you still have questions feel free to ask at the Help Desk.

Types of Competition

Our Internal Club Galas are ‘closed competitions’ as only members of our club can enter them and you can find more detail on our Internal Club Galas pages

An Open Meet is a competition where swimmers enter as individuals to compete against others of the same age band from all over the county, and beyond. For more detail visit our Open Meets pages.

Littlehampton Swimming Club Swimmers are selected for Team Galas. Find more detail on our Team Galas Pages
