(this is a team hosted event)
DEADLINES - SWIMMERS Monday 9th April 2018 - VOLUNTEERS/OFFICIALS 14th May 2018, THIS IS A FIRST COME FIRST SERVED MEET
This Meet is aimed at all swimmers and is a Short Course Meet. The meet has an entry requirement of "No Faster Than Times" and will also accept swimmers with No Times (NT), although we will try to calculate a time so that each swimmer is in a heat relevant to their times.
This is an ideal event for primarily our junior/mid range swimmers to compete and acquire a licensed time.
This Meet is currently Facilitated. This means that we MUST have parents poolside please, signup using the Job Signup button.
Due to the difficultly in getting enough parents to volunteer recently, if we do not get enough parents to step forward, we may withdraw the Club from the event.
This is a first come first served meet so we need to get our entries in by 10th April, this is a very popular meet.
Cost of the event will be £5.50 per event entered, no refunds will be provided after the deadline date unless due to illness and a medical letter can be provided.
Once an entry has been accepted a competitor shall swim or give notice of withdrawal either in person or via a designated representative. Notice of withdrawals shall be reported to the meet recorders at least 45 minutes before the start of each session. Any swimmer not present when required to swim will incur a £10 penalty. In the event of a competitor not paying the penalty, the club in whose name the competitor has entered the competition shall be responsible for payment.
Payments will be added to the quarterly Meet Fees & Refunds Process.
Promoters Deadline - 26th April.
Venue: Park Rd, Hemel Hempstead HP1 1JS
