Important: Lis Hartley

ASA South East Region is sad to relay the news of the passing away of Lis Hartley. She died earlier this evening (1st May 2013).
She was a mainstay of swimming in the old Southern District of the ASA, the new South East Region and the English Schools Swimming Association.
She was also a highly respected swimming official, serving two terms on the FINA Referees list, officiating at the Olympic Games in Sydney and being one of the Referees at the Commonwealth Games in Manchester.
Lis also worked assiduously on the management group of the regional championships and was a valued member of the Regional Management Board. We will all miss her friendship and support and offer every sympathy to her family.

The Development Group of the ASA South East Region has recognised the issues faced by some athletes and their families with the high cost of travelling long distances to training camps. Unfortunately we are not able to support all athletes and the majority of families will still have to pay all the costs, but we have brought in two new schemes to start in April 2013:
1. To help athletes from low-income families to attend the Beacon Programme. More details and application form are avaliable here.
2. To help athletes facing exceptional costs to attend national training camps – such as air travel from the Channel Islands to the mainland, or travel to Manchester for Water Polo training. More details and application form are avaliable here.
Awards are limited to £500 per athlete per year.
We hope these bursaries will allow talented athletes to attend such training and that it will make a difference to their future success in the sport.

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.
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.
