London League Round Two Licensing

The results of the galas, except that held at Hertfordshire Sports Village, have been sent to rankings.

The gala at Hertfordshire Sports Village did not meet licensing requirements - initially because there were insufficient officials - one team not providing any officials, and another providing an official with a qualification not acceptable at a licensed, level two gala. Many swimmers missed the opportunity to have times on rankings, which could then be qualifying times for high level competitions – and this happened initially because there was a lack of commitment from some people.

London League - Team Lists Submission

Due to the demands of Licensing the galas the London League has new instructions for the submission of Team Lists and any subsequent changes to team members. All competing London League Clubs should download the instructions from here, an email will be sent to all competing clubs as well. Please ensure these instructions are followed closely or Swimmer's times may not end up on the British Rankings Database.

Gala Documentation

After some problems reported prior to Round One 2015, the gala documentation can be used with Windows 10 and the latest Microsoft Office Version 2016. The issue reported was a user problem rather than a software fault.

Could all hosting Clubs, Coaches and Team Managers prior to Round Two 2015 ensure that they download the latest versions from our website here

Gala Licensing - 2015 Season

Owing to the lack of care in the submission of swimmers details on the team lists submitted at the galas during the previous year's rounds, and the changes to swimmers not being corrected on the day, British Swimming has implemented additional requirements which the league has been unable to achieve prior to this seasons rounds.

The League has however contracted to have new software created to fulfil the new requirements ensuring that the correct swimmer details and the correct times can be submitted to rankings in the future.

We will be carrying out trials of software at a few galas, but the co-operation of all team managers and coaches to ensure the correct information is submitted for ALL rounds and that the correct swimmer swims every time, with the correct data submitted.

Start sheets will be produced where possible and the swimmers checked onto the blocks. Until we have it correct, licensing will not be able to be achieved.

Everyone's co-operation in getting it right will ensure that for 2016 some rounds will be Licensed.

The Premier Division finals for each league are expected to be licensed this year so long as the league is able to comply with Licensing Regulations in their entirety.

Ian Mackenzie.
