South West Region Short Course Winter Championships 2018

02 Nov 2018 - 04 Nov 2018
October, 12 2018


This meet is only for those swimmers who have qualified.

Please see the Programme and Qualifying times on the Document link below. Note the times need to be done since January 1st 2018.

Points to note for this year are:

  1. The event is Short Course in line with the National Winter meet

  2. Reintroduction of the 100m Individual Medley

  3. There will be no “reverse” Distance events because these will not be swum at the National Winter meet.

  4. Finals - will be Open, Junior and Open B.

  5. Cyclical seeding of the last 3 heats in all events with a final. HDW events will have last heat spearheaded.

  6. A condition enabling the management committee to reject swimmers with a QT if the sessions are likely to exceed the time allowed to comply with the licensing requirement.

The entries close on Wednesday 17th October but I will need entries by Friday 12th October because they will have to be on paper forms. There is one available on the Document link below.

You will see that there is not going to be a short course meet in our schedule until after the closing date, so we will have to use Long Course conversions. The entry system takes the times directly from the ASA rankings and automatically finds the fastest time – whether it is a Short Course time or a converted Long Course time.
