2013 Update


A team eligibility form must be submitted to Kay Grimshaw by 1st October.

Each team is also required to submit the name of the swimmer for each event in each gala. This should be provided, before warm up, to the host club, on a memory stick. This system was introduced last season and was a great success, providing enhanced results. It is vital that this is continued this year as the galas in the premier division (former division one), and the galas in division one (former division two), are licensed. The names of the swimmers are required so that the times can go on to rankings.

The galas in the premier division(former division one)will be licensed level 2, except for the top gala in the last round and this will be licensed level 1. The galas in division one (former division two) will be licensed level 3.

With regard to officials:-

For the premier division – one J1 and one J2 is required. They must be qualified and licensed. The exception to this is for the top gala in the last round where there must be one J1 and two J2, all being qualified and licensed.

For division one - one J1 and one J2 is required. They must be qualified and preferably licensed.

For division two – one J1 and one J2 is required. They do not have to be licensed, but for the benefit of the swimmers, and in keeping with the high standard of the league competition, they must be qualified.

ALL teams should note that if the correct officials are not supplied, the galas cannot be run properly, and this is to the detriment of our swimmers. If the correct officials are not supplied in the premier division and division one galas, then the terms of the licensing are not being complied with, and all the swimmers at the gala will miss out, as their times will not go on to rankings!! Please do not deny this opportunity to ANY swimmer because YOUR club does not supply the correct officials.
