Team galas

Cormorants enters teams in three local swimming competitions:

Selection is a vote of confidence from the coaches and team managers – we do expect swimmers to make every effort to attend if selected, as this shows commitment to the club. It's also a chance to show what you've learned!

If it's impossible to attend because of a previous engagement or illness, please always let us know as soon as possible to gibe the team manager the best chance of finding a replacement. 


Brighton Dolphins Gala and Stoodley Girls Gala

Unusually, these are NOT really contests for experienced racers. They're fun events, with a relaxed vibe and little pressure on the swimmers. The atmosphere is collegiate, rather than competitive.

None of the races are longer than 50 metres, most are 25 metres: easy work for swimmers who train in a 33.3-metre pool!

We like to select swimmers who are:

  • New to the club
  • Inexperienced
  • Nervous
  • Don’t usually get a chance to take part in competitions
