Forth Valley Junior League (FVJL)
The Forth Valley Junior League is a Club Competition for younger swimmers in order that can experience competitive swimming as part their club team.
The event is normally held at Xcite Bathgate Leisure Centre, with the competition held over 6 heats spread throughout year. Twelve clubs from across the Forth Valley area participate, with points accrued from each heat to determine their placing in the Final held each December.
Each of the heats is held over two sessions on the same day with 6 clubs taking part in each session. Each of the member clubs also host/run one of the 12 sessions throughout the year.
The event consists of a number of individual swims in one of 3 age groups (8 & Under, 11 & Under and Open) either 25m or 50m swims, aswell as a number relay events over 100m & 200m. It is a great opportunity to introduce our younger swimmers to the world of competetive swimming whilst allowing our older and more experienced swimmers to compete as part of Team Trojan.

Latest FVJL Results
On the back of winning the 2018 "B" Final, the 2019 season saw Trojan put in a fantastic performance, this was in whole attributed to the efforts which our swimmers displayed at each round along with their commitment. At each round we averaged 30 swimmers taking part, which allowed us to maximise the number of events entered and subsequent points secured. As a result as a club we managed were runners up in 2019 league.
Due to this performance our swimmers who participated during 2019 received a silver medal to recognise the role they played and reward their efforts.
