ASA Thanks the Queen for Patronage

The ASA would like to thank Her Majesty The Queen for her patronage over the last 63 years.

The Queen became the organisation’s patron on 6 March 1953 and has been a great champion of swimming and water safety.

Her Majesty will step down as Patron of the ASA at the end of this year, with her patronage passing to HRH The Duke of Cambridge.

Use of Backstroke Ledges

Backstroke ledges must not be used at the Premier finals in each of the seven leagues in 2016.

As the results are entered into a virtual gala of 42 teams then the conditions at each of the seven galas need to be the same so that there is a level playing field.

Improved Gala Documentation Round 3 - 2016

Following feedback from Round 2 we have some updated Gala Documentation that is available to download from here

The files have all been updated for the final round to try to ensure that rankings submissions will not contain any errors. It will also make it easier to prepare the rankings files as the 4 digit club code can now be added to the gala set up page, the instructions contain a list of valid club codes.

Please try to use these documents for the final round.


Gala Documentation 2016

We have a new set of Gala Documentation available on the website for download, the main change is that clubs can now validate their team sheet against the British Rankings Database which will pick up any errors. This year we have licensed some of the galas with round one proving a challenge with numerous errors in the results (swimmer details) producing rejections from the licensing authority.

We realise this has been released quite late for Round Two but would ask as many clubs as possible to try it, if we can get it right then we have more chance of our vision of every league, every round being licensed which will be a big benefit for the swimmers and clubs.

The documents can be downloaded in the Gala Documentation Section here

National Finals 2017

Owing to British Swimming having their championships in 2017 clashing with the finals weekend, it was decided at the recent National AGM to move the event to 8th and 9th April.

Further discussions will be taking place with British Swimming about Finals dates beyond 2017.
