Gloucester Autumn Level 2 Open Meet

GL1 Leisure Centre, Gloucester

Following the alteration to the short course competition programme by British Swimming in 2017/18, things are back to normal for the 2018/19 season, and the Gloucester Level 2 open meet in October is an ideal opportunity to obtain qualifying times for winter short course nationals.

This is an early season target meet:

  • All swimmers with 4 or more qualifying times should enter this meet. Where possible swimmers should enter a range of events, due to this being an early season meet.
  • Age Development and Skill Development with qualifying times should target the 200 IM, two additional 200’s, and a range of other events not to total more than 5 per day.
  • Youth Competition should enter a wide range of events and target entering at least two swims in two sessions per day, or two swims in three sessions on one day and only one session on the remaining day.
  • Age Performance and Youth Performance should confirm their entries with their coach. The target should be to swim a wide variety, and stick to the scheduling as per Youth Competition.

Please read the meet pack before the event as it contains important information about the sign-in process for each session.
