Leinster Development Meet (Graded Gala) - 14 Jan 18
Attached please find the Gala Details and the Hy-Tek Meet Events files for the Leinster Development Meet (Graded Gala) which will be held on Sunday January 14th 2018 at the NAC.

Please note that the Qualifying Times are "slower than" and are SC. On the weekend after this Development Meet Leinster will hold a Long Course Qualifying Meet, on Friday 19th (evening), Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st of January, when all strokes / distances will be offered. Swimmers who are too fast for this Development Meet will have the opportunity to compete at the Qualifying Meet as the same QTs (but Long Course equivalents, and "faster than") will operate. 

Please note that a swimmer, should their times allow, may compete in both galas; in their "weaker" strokes at the Development Meet and in their "stronger" strokes at the Qualifying Gala.

Leinster Open Qualifying Gala - 19-21 Jan 18
Attached please find the gala information and Hy-Tek set-up files for the Leinster Open Qualifying Gala., which will be held on January 19th / 20th / 21st next.
This gala is organised in a very different manner to previous Leinster galas. Some Sessions will be for "Performance" swimmers who have approriate QTs as defined in the gala information. Other sessions will be for "Qualifiying" swimmers who have somewhat slower QTs, but who are too fast for the Development Gala on January 14th.
All events will be HDW. We look forward to welcoming swimmers from your club to the NAC in Janaury.
