Upcoming Event - 26th May 2019
This race is a swimming only event. Races will be based on level, as well as age and gender. When signing up, it is important that you know which race you are signing up for. If you are not sure of which race to enter, please check with your swimming teacher first. Choose up to 3 races that your child is capable of, with an additional fun free race of your choosing.
Our next swimming gala will be on Sunday, May 26th at St. Andrew's High School, Ekkamai campus. Please do not confuse this with our last year location of soi 71 campus. The pool is 25m long, with 8 lanes (instead of 6 lanes). Staff will be inside and out of the water to help supervise the event. If your child is 3 years old, parents are required to be in the water for supervision.
Registration will begin at 8.00. You will be given a registration number, which you can use upon entry to St.Andrew's. Races will start at 8.30am, so the registration number will help speed things up. All payments must be made in advance.
Please do not confuse your registration number with your race number. You will find out your race number on the day (on the wall), OR// if posted on facebook (a day or two in advance, once the list has been organized and finalized). Warm-up is from 8.00 - 8.15am. It is not necessary for younger kids to warm-up, but if you do decide to enter the water at this time, parents must watch their children.
Races will now start at 8.30 (30 minutes earlier than most years). The first event will most likely be the IM 100 race, followed by A1 Kickboard with Board 25m (Boys & Girls) 3/4 yrs, A2, A3, B4, ..etc. If your child has entered the A1 race, please be ready to start swimming at 8.30am. Relay races (fun race) will be the last events of the day.
Last year, the event started earlier than all our previous years, due to the amount of interest. The 2017 + 2018 event finished as scheduled by 12.30. This year we will have 8 lanes instead of 6 lanes, so we hope this will help speed things along. However due to growing interest, we still expect to finish by 12.30pm, after medals and trophies. Medals will be for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place only. There will be no medals for fun family races, as these races should not be taken seriously, as little ones can join in on the fun with mum and dad, siblings, or friends. Please form your own group for the fun races, with a team name.
Race participants have lunch included, which will be served at approximately 11.00am in the canteen area, OR// whenever the food is ready. Race events will still be ongoing until medals are handed out, so please do not be shy. Please check the wall and announcements of which race you are after.
If you are not racing, food will be an additional 150 baht. Drinks sold separately. Prices below have been updated for this year's Swim Gala (2019);
- Entry: 1,000 baht
- Food: 150 baht
As always, please do not forget your own swimming costume (Very important)! Sun cream and sun hat are also recommended! If parents are getting in the water on this day, you will need your swimsuit also! If your child is 3 yrs of age, parents are advised to go in the water for support.
