Welcome to our diddy league page.

The diddy league is for swimmers aged between 9yrs and 11yrs.
The team Manager is Gary Todd, if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask.

The Dates for 2016 diddy league galas are  April,  May,  June, and the final is in October.
 
Each club sends a team of boys and team of girls to compete.  You swim as the age you will be on the date of the Grand Final.  The 9 year age group swims mixed relay events for Butterfly, Back and Breastroke and single sex relays for the Medley and Freestyle.  The remaining age groups swim a relay of four swimmers in each of the four strokes and a medley relay.  In addition there are individual events for the 10 and 11 year old swimmers where they can race over 50m (2 lengths) in breastroke, backstroke butterfly and front crawl.  Finally there is a Cannon relay, where the fastest boy and girl from each age group form a team of 6 for the final front crawl relay.  This is always the loudest, most exciting event – bring earplugs!! You have been warned!!!!!
