The Surrey County ASA offers two levels of competition for Surrey swimmers each year:
the Surrey County Development Meet (held in June); and
the Surrey County Championships (held in January/February)
where swimmers from Surrey County affiliated swimming clubs are invited to compete if they meet the designated qualifying times.
Swimmers are expected to enter all events for which they qualify. Relay events are included in the meet programme and, if you are selected to swim, you are expected to make yourself available to do so.
The Surrey County Championships are open to qualifying swimmers aged 11 and over (with 10 year olds being able to compete provided they meet the 11 year old qualifying times). The age of swimmers is calculated as at 31st December in the year of competition.
For example, bearing in mind the Surrey Championships take place in January/February each year, if a child is aged 12 in February when the Surreys take place but has a birthday in April, they will swim as a 13 year old at the Surreys as that is the age they will be on 31st December 2024 (regardless of the fact that at the time they compete in the Surreys they are actually aged 12).
