An ‘exciting prospect’ to compete in a national ‘Festival of Swimming’ has been unveiled by Swim England and British Swimming.
While the plans for a return to competition are still in the early stages, a network of racing opportunities has been agreed.
This ‘restart to racing’ will consist of meets held throughout England, Scotland and Wales, in long course facilities, with the aim of getting as many young swimmers back racing as possible.
It is hoped that the meets will be held within a short window between mid-July and early August, combining to create a ‘Festival of Swimming’, with a pooling of results to create a national leaderboard for age groups and events.
The meets will be largely age group based, with a focus on 100m to- 400m distances and following a similar format.
