Galas

2017 SADSA Gala Fixtures can be viewed here

NESC are members of the SADSA.  We compete, as a Team, against clubs from across East and North Yorkshire including Scarborough, Bridlington, Driffield, Thirsk, Pocklington, Whitby & Beverley.  The gala season runs from March to October.  

There are three separate leagues and NESC compete in all.

  • The Friendly League - not a league as such (there is no league table) these galas allow swimmers who are new to competition to race against other swimmers in a friendly environment.  Cut off times apply i.e. swimmers who swim faster than a specified time will be disqualified.  This is to deter clubs from entering their fastest swimmers into an event which is designed for swimmers who are new to competition.
  • The Border League – the next level above the Friendly League allows swimmers to compete against a higher standard of swimmer with a league table and a trophy given to the winning team at the end of the season. Cut off times apply
  • Ridings League – the most competitive event with all the Teams fielding their strongest swimmers.  There are three leagues: Premier, 1 and 2. NESC are in League 1.

All swimmers who take part in Friendly, Border or Ridings galas are then eligible to swim in the annual SADSA championships which take place in November.

We automatically register all of our swimmers in Coaching Section with the ASA (category 1) to allow them to compete in the SADSA Leagues.
