Arena League Team Selections
Round 1 – Triangle Leisure Centre Burgess Hill
It’s that time of year again!
For those who are new to the Arena League this is a national league with approximately 400 teams across the country competing to be the top of their region and go to the national finals. Portsmouth Northsea are in the South Premier Division.
There are three rounds of competitions; October, November and December and finals in April.
Places in the Portsmouth Northsea team are selected by your Coaching team based on your performance and individual best times. It’s a privilege to be selected to compete on behalf of your club and swimmers are expected to support your team – unless there are exceptional circumstances of course!
Congratulations to our swimmers selected to compete in the first Round on Saturday 13th October which will be hosted by Mid Sussex Marlins at The Triangle Leisure Centre, Burgess Hill:
Please arrive at the MBC by 3.15 pm Saturday 13th October.
All swimmers are to travel on the Team Coach which will leave at 3.30 pm sharp from the Mountbatten Centre and return around 10pm. We can’t guarantee the finish time or travel time so parents please keep phones nearby so you are ready to collect your children when the coach returns.
We ask that your children text you when we leave Burgess Hill and also we will give them a reminder when we are approx within 20 mins of arrival. The last couple of years we’ve had youngsters waiting in the cold with their coaches having to also wait with them for parents to arrive as it’s taken a while to manage to contact them – so please ensure you keep your phone nearby!
ALL swimmers and any parents who would like to travel on the coach with the team (spaces first come first served) need to pay a £10 contribution for the coach and admin.
Bring a packed tea and snack bars / drinks for poolside.
You are representing your club so ALL swimmers are expected to wear club kit – with a new style Swimzi PNSC club top and swim hat as minimum. If you do not have PN shorts or joggers pls wear plain blue or black (no loud clashing colours pls!)
ALL selected swimmers – please confirm by ASAP that you are able to swim on 13th October, we will need to find someone in your place so please do not leave it until last minute to advise you cannot swim! Thank you!
