London Youth and Age Group Champs 2018
Update April 25th - Details of accepted and rejected entries are available from the links below.
The deadline is approaching for our entry to the 2018 London Swimming Summer Championships - the final time to sign up is midnight on Monday April 9th.
We have about 30 swimmers from our top squads who can enter either with a Qualifying Time or a Consideration Time. CT entries are not guaranteed but will be considered "fastest first" if there is space - the sign-up process is the same. The eligibility report below is a guide to who has achieved either a CT or a QT and therefore can go on to make an entry via the online system.
Please check the London Swimming website for details of the sessions and timings. In simple terms the Youth events (age 15+ on 31/12/2018) are on Saturday, Sunday and Monday May 5th-7th at the London Aquatics Centre. The Age Group events (age 11-14) are being held on the weekend of May 12th/13th at the LAC, and 19th/20th at Crystal Palace.
Qualifying times must have been achieved since April 12th 2017 at a Level 1, 2 or 3 gala - that excludes times swum at the club champs which is a Level 4 meet even if they appear on the eligibility report.
There are options for Freestyle 800m Male and 1500m Female events. I've included some approximations in the eligibility file to give an idea but the rule is that to enter male swimmers must have achieved the 400 qualifying standard and female swimmers the 800m standard.
The deadline for entries will be midnight on Monday April 9th. Events cost £7 each except for the 800/1500 events which are £10 each.
