About Essex Swim League
The League has four galas a season, held at pools with six lanes or more.
SWSC have a selection committee who will pick teams dependent upon the the criteria for the individual event. If your child is picked the Club expects he/she to participate and it is important that you as parents encourage them to attend.
Remember if you are picked to represent the Seals the swimmer must wear SWSC club colours. Please ensure your child has a drink in a plastic bottle to take with them and possibly a light snack as well.
Parental help at these events is always welcome. If you feel you could assist in any way please contact a member of the committee – they would be most happy to hear from you.
We as a club always need new officials. If you are interested in perhaps obtaining a proper qualification such as a Timekeeper, Judge or Starter please also contact a Committee Member.

Essex Swim League (ESL) Selection Policy
Selection is based on a feeder from Essex Mini League into ESL. Swimmers can be swimming in ESL from 10yrs and up. Selection is based on the following:
– PB times fastest for each age group.
– Have previous race experience.
– Deal with a higher pressured situation.
– Able to follow ASA competition/racing laws.
If swimmers are unable to attend then next PB in that event/age group will be selected.
