Somerset Championship 2019 Information


Information for the Somerset county Championships 2019

Please see below the information about the 2019 Somerset County Championships as sent by the County Meet Organiser

What has changed:

  • We’ve amended the QTs, having listened to feedback, analysing them against 2018 results, rankings, regional times and the time we have available to us, we anticipate a good number of entries from all age groups

  • We’ve changed the programme and taken it back to heats/finals in the same session but there will be a break of 30 minutes between the last heat and the first final

  • Long distance 800m/1500m events are mixed, however, results will be produced in age group by gender

  • The long-distance events will be on the first two Saturday mornings, followed by an afternoon of relays

  • We will be asking swimmers to sign in for 400m, 800m & 1500m events, no exceptions, they must sign in before the start of the warm up

  • We want to reduce the amount of paper produced and therefore will publish the heat sheets for 50m, 100m & 200m on the website and by email for you to print/download as is your preference.  All information will be on Meet Mobile. Coaches will still receive start sheets for finals and all events of 400m upwards in distance


I'm just finalising the hoodie & hat designs for this year, once completed I will send you all the link to share with your swimmers in case they wish to pre-order.

Please can I ask you to speak to all those Junior & Senior Trophy winners from 2018 and ask them now to return the trophies to Millfield, engraved, cleaned and ready to go for 2019.  They just need to hand to the Life Guards who will put them safely in the trophy cabinet for sorting out

Finally, we are still in need of a trophy controller please for Somerset, can you ask if one of your volunteers would like to take on this role. If you have anyone interested, then please ask them to contact me or Fiona Bowen.
