Important: Changes to Swimming Competition Programme

Posted on 06 Oct 2014 at 11:57 by Mike Lambert (0 user comment)

British Swimming and the ASA have now provided more information about the changes to the swimming competition programme. Ideally, these changes should be implemented as soon as possible, but it is recognised that there will need to be some flexibility in 2014/2015 because of existing commitments and difficulties in changing pool bookings.

This ASA paper and regional representatives' report summarise the proposed changes and the flexibility allowed in this current season.

To assist everyone in planning for 2015, South East Region will maintain a calendar of National, Regional and County events. This first version of the calendar is appended to this document, together with detailed descriptions of each level of competition provided by the ASA.

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.

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.
