ABOUT LEVEL X RACING

Updated 12th May 2021  (Note  subject to change due to latest Government COVID updates)

WHAT IS IT?

In the absence of competitions due to the on going COVID- 19 situation,  Level X Racing presents a fun and safe opportunity  for swimmers to practice racing skills during training as  a club time trial event.

Results will be uploaded to Swim England, who will publish leaderboards at set times throughout the Level X racing period to celebrate success.  Newcastle ASC will also publish internal results as for any normal gala, with age groups as follows; (age as 31st Dec 2021)

  • 9 and under
  • 10
  • 11
  • 12
  • 13
  • 14
  • 15
  • 16 and over
  • Open (all members)

WHO IS IT FOR?

Any Swim England category 2 member can take part in Level X Racing. Swim England are offering a free upgrade to Category 2 for current Category 1 members for the remainder of 2020 to enable them to take part in Level X Racing, however to participate in 2021 swimmers will need to be a fully paid Category 2 member.

Only swimmers who would usually be attending that particular training session should take part in Level X Racing sessions, and all swimmers should take part in their usual training bubbles with social distancing maintained throughout.

WHEN IS IT HAPPENING?

Level X schedule of racing:

16 May - 50m events 

20th June - 100m events  

18th July - 200m events

WHERE WILL IT TAKE PLACE?

Level X must take place in 25m pools. Therefore, we anticipate running the events at J2 (and potentially NULS).

IS THERE A COST? 

There is a cost for entry, to reflect the administration and facilities costs.

HOW DO I ENTER?

Entry and payments will be made online ( as we do for our gala and club champs) , via an electronic form which can be viewed here when available.
