Master’s Relay Meet plus Training Day
SWIM IRELAND MASTERS are proud to present a Master’s Relay Meet plus Training Day to be held on Saturday 30th April 2016.
The event will be held during the downtime of the Swim Ireland National Long Course Championships in the National Aquatic Centre between approximately 12.30 (registration at 12 noon) and 3.45pm (depending on the times of the SI gala). Swim Ireland are facilitating the use of the pool to Master swimmers and without this assistance it would not be possible to run the event.
This event will give Club teams a great opportunity to practise relay racing and/or set Provincial and National relay records and will give individuals the opportunity to train in a Long Course session.
The event is open to ALL current registered Masters Swimmers. You do not have to compete as part of a relay team to partake in the training session or novelty relay.

 

The relay events are for Men, Ladies and Mixed teams; 4 X 50m Medley (max. 2 heats, 20 teams), 4 X 50m Freestyle (max. 2 heats, 20 teams) and 4 X 200m Freestyle (max. 1 heat, 10 teams). The novelty relay will be open to all individual entrants and teams will be drawn by lots.

A draft programme of the relays and training session is attached.
