The cross-Home Nations and British Swimming Performance
Implementation Group (PIG) have decided to shorten the 2020
Qualifying Window compared to previous years based on feedback from
the competitive swimming community.
This is primarily to more closely align with the end of the second
major training block of the season, increase the lead in time for
athletes/coaches to the end of season meets and lessen the
cross-over with the schools’ examination period. This is
particularly important for meet organisers to note.
The British Summer Championships and the three home nation summer
meets continue to form part of the Performance Pathway Strategy
aimed at supporting the UK’s junior swimming talent on their
journey towards senior medal-winning international performances.
Entry to these key end of season events will remain by invitation
only, from performances recorded in the above Qualifying Window.
Entries into the British Summer Championships will only be accepted
from competitors registered as members of a British Swimming home
nation club (Swim England, Scottish Swimming or Swim Wales).
