Once your child has attained Stage 7 they may be invited to join our Speedo sessions.
These are held weekly, with a view to introducing your child to competitive swimming.
DVASC are members of the Scarborough and District Swimming Association (SaDSA). We compete against clubs from across East and North Yorkshire including Beverley, Bridlington, Driffield, Pocklington, Scarborough, South Hunsley, Thirsk & Whitby. The gala season runs from March to October.
There are three separate leagues and DVASC compete in all.
Friendly League - these galas allow swimmers who are new to competition to race against other swimmers in a friendly environment. Cut off times apply i.e. swimmers who swim faster than a specified time will be disqualified. This is to deter clubs from entering their fastest swimmers into an event which is designed for swimmers who are new to competition.
Borders League – this is the next level above the Friendly League and allows swimmers to compete against a higher standard of swimmer, with a league table and a trophy given to the winning team at the end of the season. Cut off times apply.
Ridings League – the most competitive event with all teams entering their strongest swimmers. There are three leagues: Premier, 1 and 2. DVASC are currently in Division 2.
All swimmers who take part in Friendly, Border or Ridings galas are then eligible to swim in the annual SaDSA Championships which take place in November. Also, if you swim for us competitively, you will be presented with a free white Club swimming cap, with the DVASC logo emblazoned on the side.
