Competing for Scotia ASC

At Scotia ASC we encourage all our swimmers to compete. Competitions are not all about winning and medals (although it is nice when that happens). Competitions benefit swimmers in a wide variety of ways. They allow swimmers to overcome their fears, build team spirit and encourage them to fulfil their potential. But overwhelmingly the main reason why it is good to compete is that competitions are great fun.

Scotia ASC swimmers compete at all levels from the mini league and level 3 competitions all the way up to national and international competitions.

You have to start somewhere and there is no better way to start competing than the Clyde Coast Mini League. These are always fun and noisy and there is absolutely no pressure. The swimmers love them and even our A-Squad members will still say they are the best competitions to be involved in. For more information click here

In addition Scotia ASC also participates in a number of local West District club meets. These are designated level 3 (the lowest) to level 1. If we are participating in a club meet we will invite your swimmer if they are in a squad that has been selected to compete. Often entries for races depend on meeting criteria (for example a personal best swim time that is either quicker or slower than the time given by the organiser). This will depend on the rules set.

The more your child competes the more their confidence will grow, until before you know it they have qualfied for national meets, such as Scottish National Age Groups.
