(this is a team hosted event)
THIS IS A FIRST COME FIRST SERVED MEET - DEADLINES - SWIMMERS 5th Jan - VOLUNTEERS/OFFICIALS - 12th Mar
This meet is aimed at most swimmers, but, as this has a 'no faster than' entry time, is probably not applicable to some of our top swimmers who will be too fast.
This meet is currently Facilitated,which means we are not expecting to have a coach present and therefore MUST have parents poolside. Please could volunteers and officials signup using the job signup button.
- This is a first come first served meet.
- Entries with ‘No Time’ are not permissible, we will therefore calculate times if needed based on historical times.
- We will confirm entries once we receive confirmation of events from the promoter after the promoters deadline date.
- Cost of the event will be £6.50 per event entered, no refunds will be provided after the entries have been submitted as per the promoters conditions, unless due to illness and a medical letter can be provided.
- Fees for this meet will be accrued as part of the quarterly Meet Fees and Refund Process Quarter Q1
- Withdrawals prior to the promoters date will not incur costs, however post this date refunds will not be made unless we receive a medical note.
