Club Sprint Night

We are pleased to announce that details of a new Club Sprint Night are now on the web site Competition Calendar.  This is a new club event and one designed to take place just before Christmas with a real fun party atmosphere.

There will be the four 50m sprints plus a 100m Individual Medley and we hope to have a Level 4 Licence (now confirmed) so that the results enter into the British Swimming Rankings allowing the times to be used in other licenced meets, specifically the County Champs in March.  We would hope that swimmers from all the Squads enter the Event and make it a great night.  As a licenced meet we have limited time on the night so have some limitations on entry numbers (as any Open Meet does) so entries will be accepted on a ‘first Come’ basis.

As with the Club Champs we will need lots of help on the night, so as we get closer we will be looking for a good number of officials and other help please.

National Arena League

Sharks came a hard fought fourth place last night in a pretty tough opening round to this years competition.  There was some great swims and 10 first places.  Highlight of the evening for all the swimmers was surely Adam Peaty in the 100m breaststroke, lots of autographs were sought!

City Of Derby 249
Braunstone A 194
City Of Coventry 193
Stratford Sharks 168
Leicester Penguins A 157
Boldmere B 84

New ASA Competition Structure

The ASA have just released this document which provides information relating to the new Swimming Competition Structure applicable from 2015.  Counties & Regions need to fully apply this by 2016 at the latest, but preferably from 2015.

The Warwickshire Counties will be in March as in previous years but it is not yet known what the conditions will be.

The document is quite detailed so a quick summary of the main points.

  • Counties, Regionals, Nationals will revert to Age at 31st December in year of competition.
  • There will British Nationals taken from the rankings, those not in the top 24 for an event will be eligible to compete in Home Nation nationals if they have the QT's.
  • Regular Open Meet age dates will be down to the promoter who can have them as 'Age on Day' or end of year.
  • Minimum age band for Regionals will be 11/12 and for Counties 10/11, QT's will be on these joint age bands.
  • This means those still 9 at the 31st December of that year will no longer compete at the Counties in Jan/Feb.
  • The new ASA Winter National SC competition can only be qualified for through L2 SC times, no LC conversions.
