Closing date for entries is Monday 9th December 2019, ELECTRONIC ENTRY FILES along with ENTRY SUMMARY FORM, RELAY ENTRY FORM and, ENTRY DECLARATION must be with me by midnight on that day. Due to the tight timescale regarding; processing entries and printing programs, failing to provide the Hy-Tek file on time could result in promoter’s condition No. 8 being invoked.
 
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDS QUALIFICATION TIMES.  All times submitted must be able to be verified on British Swimming Rankings i.e. times achieved at a licensed L4-L1 competition, and must have been attained within the qualifying time period as per the promoters conditions.
 
All clubs are to ensure that they are familiar with condition No. 28 of the Promoter’s Conditions, to prevent fines and withdrawals of swimmers and relay teams who repeatedly fail to comply with this condition. Please ensure Coaches are fully advised of this.
 
Please also note: This year the entry system will be paperless, please therefore, read the promoters conditions and entry documentation carefully.
 
The Hy-tek file will be issued in due course.
 
Changes to the 2020 programme
 
You will note from the above that there have been some changes to the schedule. Namely, the Girls Age Group Relays (10/14 age groups) have been bought forward and the gap between the 400m events and the Main Championships reduced by one week, this has been done to avoid straddling half term and to accommodate those clubs with swim camps over the half term.
 
Please also note the change to the 200m Finals withdrawal process which has been bought into line with that of the 50m & 100m finals with active withdrawal required.  
 
Finally, we will not be issuing team manager packs at the 2020 Championships; instead, team managers will be issued with the warm-up schedule, a programme and poolside passes only, therefore team managers will be required to bring withdrawal and relay declaration forms (they are not included in the 2020 Documentation below as they are not for general distribution).
