Dear all, 

Please find attached accepted entries for this year's Club Championships.  Apologies for the delay in getting these out.  This was due to a combination of several late entries and many new members joining the Club.  Welcome to all these new members and we hope you enjoy participating in our Club Champs. 

Please check all accepted entries carefully and notify me of any errors by the end of Thursday, 12th September, to enable us to publish the programme online ahead of our first gala on Monday 16th September. 

Please note that there will be no training sessions for the squads eligible to take part in Club Championships on the six Monday evenings of Club Champs.  Further details about Monday's gala will be sent out on Friday (hopefully!) 

Many thanks to all our officials and helpers who have already volunteered their services for our Club Champs.  I am sure that David Ziwa would love to hear from you if you are able to officiate but haven't yet let him know and we are always on the look out for more helpers.  Hannee Sawyer will be in touch with all of you who have offered to help out with marshalling etc. but again, any additional help would be appreciated as it makes the galas run more smoothly. 

Looking forward to hopefully holding an exciting competition, and I look forward to seeing you all on Monday evening! 

Kind regards, 




Hi Everyone!
It’s that time of year again when we turn our attention to the BSC Club Championships 2019Please click on the link below for the entry details:
Entry Form & Championship Conditions  - MS Word version
Entry Form & Championship Conditions   - PDF version
Please ensure you read everything and that you provide all the requested information to speed up the processing of your entry.  
The annual Club Championships will take place over 6 Monday evenings between September - December 2019 at The Spa, Beckenham. They are for swimmers in Blue, White, Bronze, Silver, Club and Performance squads (3, 2 & 1) and all distances/events are included in the schedule.
For swimmers new to the Club who haven’t entered these Championships before, please check with your Coach as to which events your child should enter & take a look at the Club Website. Open Meets -> Club Championships ...you'll need to be logged in to see past years' results and club records for each event or if you have any questions please email me.
All swimmers need to be ASA registered to compete in licensed galas.  If you are unsure of your swimmer's ASA number, it can be found by accessing this link:  http://www.swimming.org/swimengland/club-member-check/
Coaches would like all eligible swimmers to enter this Competition, especially as it falls within the main training timetable.  We are a competitive swimming club and so swimmers should compete in these championships in order to make sense of all those hours of hard training throughout the year.
The format of these Championships is exactly the same as last year.  We will be alternating the start between both girls and boys and the long distance events (800m and 1500m) are now open to both girls and boys (swimmers can only swim 1 event though given they're on the same evening).  Please, as with all galas, check with your coach as to which events your children should be swimming.
As always, these championships cannot take place without the help of our Parents so please complete the Helpers/Officials form provided and send in together with your entry form as soon as possible.  If you have never helped out before, please don't let this put you off - you will be given lots of guidance and there are a multitude of roles that need filling at each session!  This also includes our officials - on a couple of sessions last year we were very close to not having the sessions licensed due to not having enough officials turn up so please, please let us know you can help out!
A Raffle will be held on the last Club Champs Session in December - further details will be sent out nearer the time.
I look forward to receiving your entry forms before the closing date of Monday 2nd September 2019 & to holding a successful Championships this year!
Many thanks
Katrina Pauling
