Overview

Hamilton Aquatics competitions are especially designed to provide the right level of competition to young swimmers and to support their development from the first competitive experience to elite performance. We offer various levels of competitions to our members and the wider swimming community in the UAE. Our efficient handling of youth swimming events has resulted in Hamilton Aquatics being nominated as technical partners to Asian Paralympic Games and World School Games hosted in the UAE.


Hamilton Aquatics Open Meets

The Hamilton Aquatics Open Meets are aimed at swimmers with higher experience being used to competing regularly. There are short course (SC) and long course (LC) competitions, held over 2 days with morning and afternoon sessions, throughout the season. Hamilton Aquatics offers six Open Meets throughout the season, including the Middle East Open & Junior Championships in the month of February.

Each of Hamilton Aquatics Open Meets have a specific role in swimmer development.

The Middle East Open & Junior Championship attract swimmers from all over the world, offering a comprehensive programme and finals. This competition has age group finals for all 50m and 100m events, open finals for 200m events, with the fastest heats for the 400m events also being held in the finals sessions. It is held over 3 days with a morning session for heats (Open Championships), an afternoon session for Junior Championships and an evening session for finals (Open Championships) each day. By holding the finals in a separate session, the Middle East Open & Junior Championships mirrors competitions in the UK and prepares swimmers for competing overseas with the Hamilton Aquatics Team or at National level competitions.

Hamilton Aquatics Short Course is held in October, at the start of the season, and gives swimmers the opportunity to demonstrate key skills such as starts, turns and finishes. This competition helps swimmers to excel in these areas as they begin to increase their fitness for the season.

Hamilton Aquatics Winter Long Course is held in December, providing an opportunity for swimmers to race at the end of their training cycle, before the winter break, and allowing them to demonstrate the skills they have developed during this training cycle. It includes the Hamilton Aquatics 'Mixed Mystery Medley' event in which the 8 fastest swimmers from the 200m individual medley are be invited to participate.

The BSM Marlins March Open gives younger swimmers the opportunity to develop the skills associated with attending an overseas competition in a fun and friendly environment.

Hamilton Aquatics 'Last Chance' is held in May, scheduled to fall within the qualifying period for British and other home country National Competitions, offering swimmers a 'Last Chance' to register times that can be used for entry to National competitions without having to travel overseas. This competition includes the Hamilton Aquatics 'Skins' competitions - a true test of swimmer's physical and mental toughness.

Hamilton Aquatics Summer Sizzler is held in June, our last competition of the season. It provides a final opportunity for swimmers to demonstrate the skills they have learned and the development they have made during the season.

Hamilton Aquatics Development Series

Hamilton Aquatics Development Series is the second level of competition following the First Series. This competition is for swimmers 8 years and above who have proven competition experience. Due to the increased demand for this competition and the need to support development and progression of all swimmers, this competition is run over a full day with a morning and afternoon session.

Development Series is aimed at swimmers in our Development and Potential Squads but is also open to stronger swimmers in our Foundation & Club Squads who meet the qualifying times. This competition is also open to swimmers of a similar standard from external swimming clubs across the region.

In order to aid swimmer progression and help swimmers develop their race skills and technique over longer distances in competitions, the Development Series has been designed with entry criteria that allows swimmers to enter longer distance events as they progress and reach the required standards that have been set in line with Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) principles. This also allows swimmers who develop at a later stage with opportunities to compete as the faster developing swimmers within our academy.
