Different Kinds of Gala
There are a number of different kinds of gala, including graded galas, junior league and open (individual entry) competitions.
Most swimmers are initially given the opportunity to have experience in a graded league gala, competing as part of the Anaconda team against others of a similar ability.
All swimmers in the big pools are encouraged to make themselves available to swim in galas if invited to do so. It is a requirement of the club that all squad swimmers at Cally must be committed to representing the club in galas. Galas are normally held on Saturdays and on some occasions a minibus may be provided to take swimmers from the Cally Pool to the gala and return them to the pool (a small charge is made).
