Swim England South East has decided to proceed with the 2021 Short Course Open/Junior Championships, even if there are COVID-19 restrictions in place, and has budgeted to lose money on the event if necessary.

The nature of this competition will depend on the level of restrictions that may be in place at the time of the competition. We are, of course, hoping that these will be minimal and that the operation of the event will be virtually normal.

In our planning we will be considering how to cope with any restrictions imposed by:

  • The Government
  • Swim England
  • The Pool Operator

Clubs and swimmers should note the following:

  • Entry times must be from level 1, 2, 3 and 4 licensed meets or Level X swimming. For swims up to 200m, times must be set no earlier than 1st October 2020. For swims longer than 200m, times must be set no earlier than 1st October 2019.
  • There will be no meaningful qualifying times. The fastest entries for each event will be accepted. The number to be accepted (and a decision on whether tom include finals) will be published when there is clarity regarding the capacity constraints agreed with the pool operator
  • We may not be able to accomodate spectators. It is our intention to provide live streaming that was so success at the Festival of Swimming.
  • We intend to offer a full programme of (50m, 100m, 200m, 400, plus 800m (female) and 1500m (male) events.
