Kent Development Meet 2018 (SE181909)

Thank you to everyone that has entered this years Development Meet. 16% up on last year.

I have gone through all the entries and the accepted/rejected are here

There are 3 reasons for rejection

  1. Green highlights - accepted for the event at this year's main Kent Championships - so not eligible for the development competition
  2. Yellow - too young to compete this year
  3. Grey - exceeded the maximum number of 6 per swimmer

The Warmup times are in the list, 9am and 1pm each day.

DE Photos are attending to sell action photos, please let me know before the start of any session if any swimmer doesn't wish to have a racing photo. You only buy if you like them

Please note the changes to poolside pass conditions.

Kent Development Meet 2018.


All the great swimmers start with the grassroots of the sport, and that starts with events like the County Development Meet. We have kept a similar format to that of 2017. The only changes being to reduce the number of relays.

Our aim is to encourage more entrants, and give more swimmers a chance to win a Kent Medal. As the title says it is a development meet, so county qualifiers can't enter swims for which they have obtained a championship's 2018 consideration time. Note they can enter events that they have not achieved times for. 

Also, we have added a points table to enable selection for the Kent Development Camp in 2019. (See conditions for full details). To help spread entries swimmers can enter a maximum of 6 events.
