Derbyshire Junior Grand Prix 2021
The Derbyshire Junior Grand Prix is a series of 3 galas aimed at novice swimmers in Derbyshire to give them competition experience in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, and to give them
the opportunity to post qualifying times for the County events later in the season. They are licenced to level 4. It’s a great opportunity to compete against other swimmers in their age group
from around the county. Beforehand, there will be an introductory talk for the swimmers to tell them what they need to know before they compete for the first time.
The top 3 swimmers in each age group will be presented with medals at the Derbyshire Long Course Championships at Ponds Forge in December,
by the Derbyshire ASA President. All competitors will be given a Certificate of Participation.
The second round of the Junior Grand Prix is Sunday 10th October at Alfreton Leisure Centre, the closing date is Sunday 26th September.
We are delighted to confirm that Derventio Excel’s Olympic swimming sensation Jacob Whittle will be giving a talk before the event, and will do a demonstration swim!
There will be a raffle, including prizes donated by Olympic swimmers Molly Renshaw, Abbie Wood and Jacob Whittle.
Alfreton Leisure Centre are not operating any spectator restrictions, so please come along to support these young swimmers.
