Plans for the day out­lined by Head Coach Dave Calle­ja and how to get your tick­ets for the biggest team event of the year!

The Nation­al Are­na League Final will be held at Ponds Forge, Sheffield on Sun­day 17th April 2011. The squad will be trav­el­ling to the venue by coach. All select­ed swim­mers will be expect­ed to trav­el with the squad in accor­dance with the our Nation­al Are­na League Selec­tion Policy.

Sched­ule

  • Meet 11:30 at John Charles Cen­tre for Sport
  • Coach Departs 11:45
  • Warm Up 13:30
  • Coach returns 18:30 (esti­mat­ed)

Swim­mers will be expect­ed to trav­el in full City of Leeds Swim­ming Club Kit and wear City of Leeds Club Kit on pool­side at all times dur­ing the event. Swim­mers who wear a swim­ming cap must wear a City of Leeds Club cap for warm up and rac­ing. This is in accor­dance with the City of Leeds Swim­ming Club Nation­al Are­na League Selec­tion Policy.

The Nation­al Are­na League Final Squad has been select­ed from the City of Leeds Swim­ming Club Rank­ings. Selec­tion is based on age as at 31st Decem­ber and in accor­dance with the City of Leeds Swim­ming Club Nation­al Are­na League Selec­tion Policy.

Tick­ets

Tick­ets for the Nation­al Are­na League Final are avail­able from Kay Chees­brough (Senior Nation­al Squad). To reserve your tick­ets contact:

  • Email: kcheesbrough@​featherstone.​wakefield.​sch.​uk
  • Phone: 07931661345

Tick­ets are £7.00 each (£3.50 for senior cit­i­zens and under 16 years). Dis­abled indi­vid­u­als and their car­ers are admit­ted free of charge.

Trans­port

There are a num­ber of events tak­ing place on the week­end of the final and we have been advised that park­ing will be very restrict­ed in and around the pool. The club will there­fore arrange for one or two sup­port­ers coach­es to trav­el to Sheffield if required. To this end, when you reserve your tick­ets you will be asked to indi­cate your wish to trav­el by coach or not. The cost of the sup­port­ers coach will be approx­i­mate­ly £5.00 per head. The swim­mers coach will be free of charge.

The sup­port­ers bus togeth­er with the swim­mers bus will depart from the John Charles Cen­tre for Sport at 11.45am and expect­ed to return at approx­i­mate­ly 5.00pm.

If any par­ents would be pre­pared to help get things organ­ised in terms of t-shirts, horns, make-up, fun­ny wigs or any oth­er team para­pher­na­lia, then I am sure the sup­port­ers com­mit­tee would very much appre­ci­at­ed it.

It will be a great after­noon of fast and furi­ous team com­pe­ti­tion, and I hope every­one will be able to come along and sup­port the swimmers.
