The Region would like to highlight that in line with the ever-evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, it may be necessary to limit the number of athletes at the event, perhaps even at short notice. To this extent, the times being published today are consideration times rather than qualifying times, and they do not guarantee entry to the event. We thank you in advance for your understanding.

An online entry system will operate, with a link to the system being posted on this website soon. The entry system will be predicated on individuals making their own entries – club gala secretaries will not be required to do block entries for their club. A full entry pack will also be published when entries open. There will be a separate entry system for Para Swimming athletes – full details of both entry systems will be published at the same time.

Stage One of the entry process will enable those with consideration times achieved at licensed meet levels 1,2,3 and 4 between 01/01/2019 and 20/03/20 to enter. Stage One entries will close at midday on Friday 2nd July, at which time a review of entries will be conducted. If space is available in the meet, Stage Two of the entry process will commence, with consideration times achieved at licensed meet levels 1,2,3,4 and X between 01/01/2019 and the revised entry closing date being permitted for entry.

Online forms will shortly be published for those technical officials and event volunteers who are willing to assist at the meet. The Region will require a great deal of support to ensure that the events run safely and well, and we look forward to receiving applications from our members in due course.
