New British Competition Structure - British Swimming Need Your Views

Posted on 16 May 2014 at 17:12 by Bryony Gibbs (0 user comment)

The visionary goal of British Swimming’s Performance Pathway is to ensure all participating swimmers have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience within the sport, and those who aspire to achieve Olympic success are fully supported in doing so.

A key element of realising this goal is ensuring that we have in place a Domestic Competition Structure that fully supports and is in synergy with this goal and our high performance aspirations.

Disability Swimming

In line with the recommendations of the ASA, the South East Region will adopt a dual approach in support of disability swimming.

  • Disabled swimmers will be encouraged to swim alongside able-bodied swimmers in “mainstream” competitions; multi-disability events will be included in Regional championships.
  • Specialised disability events will be used to encourage the growth of disability swimming.

Licensed Meets

The South East Region’s responsibility for competition will extend to ensuring that all swimmers have the opportunity to compete at their own level, through the provision of appropriate licensed meets.

Where there is a need, the Region will support meets that are not financially viable.
