Open Meets are swimming galas or competitions which can be entered by members of any swimming club (or even individual ASA registered members). Most Open Meets will have a time qualification regulating which swimmers can enter. The idea behind this is to give opportunities to all levels of swimmers to compete against swimmers of a similar ability at that time. In addition Open Meets usually contain age bands within which the swimmers can compete for medals – usually the higher the level of gala the fewer age bands and number of medals on offer. Bridlington Swimming Club usually holds three Open Meets each year, and we would love to welcome you and/or your swimmer(s) to any one or more of them.

these are events that are held in a 25m pool
Swim 21 is the ASA's Club Development model - a planning tool, based on the principles of Long Term Athlete Development, enabling clubs to help athletes, teachers, coaches and administrators to achieve their full potential. It focuses particularly on the needs of athletes - striving to provide them with the best possible support and environment. Swim 21 Accreditation is a 'Quality mark'. It recognises nationally and regionally the clubs that are committed to providing safe, effective and quality services for the benefit of their members. Clubs work steadily towards the attainment of a series of outcomes all of which are seen as essential if the right level of support is to be provided at each stage of an athlete's development.
