Swimming Gala

This is a bi-annual competition, open to all Cubs in the District. Packs can enter as many teams as they want, but they must be comprised of the correct ages/strokes - see the rules and team sheets. The Cubs compete in a number of different races and are awarded points based on their finishing position. These points go towards the team total and medals are awarded to the top three finishing teams.
