Alternative Window for 2021 County Age Group Championships

Swim England has confirmed it is committed to doing everything it can to enable the ‘excellent’ County Age Group Swimming Championships take place in 2021.

However, due to the ongoing coronavirus restrictions, it is highly unlikely that these events will be able to take place in their usual January/February time slot.

To that end, Swim England has announced that the normal window will be suspended until later in the year.

An alternative window will now run from late May until 18 July 2021, with a further racing opportunity opening up for counties later in the year so older swimmers sitting exams will be given the chance to participate at an appropriate time.

Swim England has also confirmed the current plan is to run Regional Championships within their usual window and it will be making every effort to enable this to happen.

Swim England will soon be publishing details of its full Return to Competition strategy, including plans for the phased return of Open Meets.

The first part of this features Level X Racing which will be fully launched next week following completion of the pilot scheme.
