How do I find my
child's time for a gala?
Licensed meet times can be found by looking at the ASA's
database of times for each swimmer, known as their 'biog', or
ASA biographies can be accessed by inserting your child’s ASA number into the
search box on
https://www.swimmingresults.org/biogs/, or by putting your surname into the
search box, then scrolling down and clicking on them from the results generated
Not all meets are licensed so a broader range of times
actually swum (second, third and final leg split times of relays
can NEVER be used to enter individual events) can be found on
the club PB (Personal Best) list, which can be found in the
members section of the website and on the board at Hutton Moor.

The ASA's National Swim21 panel has approved our submission
Swim21 is the ASA's 'kite mark' of good practice and the
committee, lead very much by Steve Soper, has been working
towards this for the past 18 months.
This award will enable the club to obtain bursaries more
easily towards courses for volunteers, teachers and coaches and
also means our older swimmers can participate in the ASA South
West Region's young volunteer programme.
