May Day Meet

We have had an amazing response to our new two day long course Meet at Leeds in May, 2500 entries in less than 36 hours! 

We weren't to sure if we would get this Gala into clubs calendars this year, but it seems we have pitched it just about perfect.

With this year's Youth & Senior NER's being put back one week and next year potentially combining with the Age Group Meet at the beginning of June, it looks like the May Day Meet is here to stay!

Introduction to Officiating

New ASA licensing requirements mean that even more of our poolside volunteers have to have some accreditation, and this is how we can meet this:

It means a talk of about an hour, and a practical session!

The first course of the year will run during the lunch break at the John Harriman Gala.

There is no pressure, no pass or fail - you might even enjoy yourself.

It is open to members of all clubs affiliated to the DMasa who are willing to Timekeep at the John Harriman Gala (am or pm session).
