To enter this years event is quite simple as all you need to do is to email pbscgalasec@gmail.com and confirm which sessions you will be attending, then you will automatically entered into all the eligible events for that session. The advice from the PBSC Coaching Team is that all swimmers should compete in all the events in their age group. On the day of each session swimmers will need to confirm their entries by signing in at the "sign in" desks that will be in the foyer. It is the swimmers responsibility to sign in on the night and failure to do so may mean that you will be unable to take part. Any questions please speak with the PBSC Coaching Team.

The closing date for entries is midnight on September 10th 2016. No Late entries will be accepted. Please don't forget your entries for the parent and child relay, which once again will be one of the most hotly contested events!
