Some points worthy of mention here, firstly the distinction between Long Course and Short Course events. Long course means the event is swum in a 50m pool; short course is a 25m pool. There are conversion factors which allow you to convert a time achieved in a Long Course event to an equivalent Short Course time, an online convertor can be found on the ASA website or please ask the gala secretary. The swimming short course season starts in September and all events up to Christmas are generally run as short course (25m) and in January to end July the higher level regional and national events are long course (50m) with a qualifying window for Nationals from (approx) mid March to end May
