The Lothian Region Children's Gala takes place at Prestonpans

on Thursday, 27 January 2022.

Saturday 29th January 2022

Lothian Region welcomes swimmers to their Children's Gala at Prestonpans on Saturday 29th January 2022. This meet was originally scheduled for 20 November 2021 but due to unforeseen circumstances had to be cancelled so this is for swimmers who were 11 and under on that day.

The aim of the children’s gala is to keep everything as simple and easy as possible as many swimmers may never have attended a competition or precious few due to lockdowns. We want to make things an enjoyable experience for everyone not just swimmers but coaches and also volunteers.
