In the early 1990’s when the racing team from Shirley was first reforming, no other teams would swim against Southampton Dolphins so we created our own galas: Titans V Warriors. The swimmers are split into two equal teams and race against each other in a series of events. Faces are painted with a W or T and war cries ring out! Now it’s back, on Saturday November 11th 5pm – 7pm (at Shirley Pool) and open to all swimmers from butterfly up to Dolphins. The final event is a mass treasure hunt, followed by pizzas. It is noisy and wet and the kids love it.Times are recorded for 25m and then used to find swimmers for the Novice league and galas against other clubs. The kids became so good that other clubs still didn’t want to swim against Dolphins!
