SWIM IRELAND MASTERS are proud to present a Master’s Relay Meet plus Training Day to be held on Sunday 27th April 2014.
The event will be held during the downtime of the Swim Ireland National Long Course Championships in the National Aquatic Centre between approximately 12.00 noon and 3.30pm (depending on the times of the SI gala). Swim Ireland are facilitating the use of the pool to Master swimmers and without this assistance it would not be possible to run the event.
This event will give Club teams a great opportunity to practise relay racing and/or set Provincial and National relay records and will give individuals the opportunity to train in a Long Course session.
The event is open to ALL current registered Masters Swimmers. You do not have to compete as part of a relay team to partake in the training element of the session.
