The club competes in a number of league competitions which run throughout the year. 
The three league events we currently compete in are the Forth Valley Junior League, Swim West Lothian Splash League & Lothian Intermediate League. 

The league is held over three weekends at Prestonpans Pool and itís a great team event which enables swimmers  from all our squads to swim together.  

One swimmer, per team, per event, will have a maximum of 2 individual swims.  The events are: 

  • 8/9 years - 25 FLY / 50 FLY / 50 BACK / 50 BREAST / 50 FREE / 4 X 25 RELAY
  • 10/11 years - 200 FREE / 100 IM / 50 BACK / 50 FLY / 50 BREAST / 4X50 RELAY
  • 12/13 & 14+ years - 200 FREE / 200 IM / 100 BACK / 100 BREAST / 100 FLY / 4 X 50 RELAY 

PLEASE  NOTE THE SWIMMERíS AGE AS AT 04/06/17 (the date of the 3rd and final round of this league) 

We hope to take 5 swimmers from each category at each event to be able to field a full team. We donít need to field the same swimmers at each event.

The Forth Valley Junior League (FVJL) is a junior swimming league, with 12 participating clubs, run by a committee of parent helpers / club representatives. 

There are 6 galas from January to December, with the A and B finals taking place in December. On each event day, there are 2 galas. Each gala lasts 2 hours. 

All galas are currently held in our home pool in Bathgate. This is a great venue for these events as there is plenty of room poolside for all teams and a large spectator gallery to accommodate the large support at these events.

There are a mix of relay & individual events. The events are time banded meaning if you swim faster than the time band the team gains no points. The idea is to help clubs introduce new novice swimmers to competitive swimming.  Bathgate where possible aim to include new swimmers in each heat throughout the year. We run regular time trials which help identify potential new team members.

It is not always the case all swimmers get to swim individual events, some will only swim relays. Swimmers do not select their swims the team manager selects swims based on swimmers PBís, event time bands & coach feedback. It is important in FVJL if you commit to attend you make every effort to attend or let the team management know if you cannot make it. To gain maximum points we need a full team in each age group to field relay teams in each event.

Please remember that the FVJL galas are fun events and they would not be possible without parent helpers / volunteers. Each club hosts one gala each year and must provide 2 time-keepers per gala.


Team Selection Procedure - The team manager selects the team based on the meet criteria, swimmers PB's and coach feedback. Selected members are given an invitation slip around 3 weeks prior to the event. This slip needs to be signed and returned to team manager before the closing date stated on the slip. Note it is very important if you commit to attend that you make every effort to do so or contact the team manger ASAP if unavailable so a replacement can be sought.
