Mini Galas are held 3 to 4 times per year and are an introduction to competitive swimming in a relaxed and fun environment.
It gives swimmers the chance to put their training into practice and parents and carers the chance to see how their child is progressing. It is a great opportunity for young swimmers to learn about competitive swimming and to prepare for graded meets.
Medals are awarded to 1st to 6th place in each age group.
The competition lasts for approximately 2 hours
