Booking will be available online via Parent Portal on our website www.iswim.ie or iClass Pro App.
For all contestants awaits: great sports emotions, starter packs (swimming bag, a bottle of water, energetic bar, fruit), and gold medals for all swimmers.

Start: 10am or 11am depending on the number of entries.
End: 3pm or 6pm depending on the number of applications.
The aim of the event is the Polish-Irish integration and popularization of swimming among children as a form of a healthy and active lifestyle and improvement of water safety.
The Family gala is for both children who start their adventure with swimming and those who are already able to swim competitively in the competition. To enable all children to start in the competition, also those who are just learning how to swim, we have swimming aids ready for them.
The competition is also for adults – both in the men’s and women’s categories.
The family relay is a very exciting competition in the Polska Éire Family Cup, during which the parent and the child will compete against other teams, which was a hit in the 1st edition!
The competition will be freestyle, which means that each participant can swim in one of 4 swimming styles. The youngest children can swim alone or use a swimming aid: a vest, a board, or a noodle.
Each swimmer starts the race starting from the water near the pool wall.
Swimmers start according to the following categories:
- Frogs 25 m freestyle with or without the aid
