Kent County ASA Championships 2019
On to weekend 2, and Crystal Palace, its the longer
distances, IM's and the new Olympic events this
weekend. Please forward this to your coaches, swimmers and
The first point as with last weekend is If a swimmer has
qualified, please stress the importance of competing, lots of other
swimmers have been disappointed, please don't waste
the space. We had fewer withdrawals than last
year, so thank you.
The medal presentations went down very well last weekend, with a
90% approval rating on our snap twitter poll, so we'll keep them in
the programme. Its HDW for all events this weekend, please ensure
you attend the presentations at the end of each session if you are
1,2 or 3. It's a great achievement to make the final, never mind
the podium. Swimmers train harder than most other sports, and
rarely have podium opportunities, so make sure you enjoy the
fruits of your efforts.
This year, coaches with poolside passes will be able to join the
officials for food at the break down in the green room, down the
stairs opposite the gym.
Warm-down is available in all sessions.
In the unfortunate event that withdrawal is necessary (remember
there are many swimmers that could have taken the space in most
events), You must withdraw before the warmup starts
. Please withdraw at the medal table.
The top car park is open but does have a height restriction (cars
only), drive straight ahead to enter. However last week the exit
gate was closed early. All parking is free.
Most of the area in the last few miles around Crystal Palace seems
to be 20mph speed restrictions,, so please allow enough time. If
you are unfamiliar with Crystal Palace , here is a link to the map You should enter
from the western side of the park via Anerley Hill.
Many coach passes have been issued, the remainder will be at the
Warm- UP Times
The warm-up times for weekend 2 are below
For those of you that haven't been to Crystal Palace, it's a
bit colder poolside than most pools, so ensure you have suitable
warm clothing for poolside.
