Consideration Times and Entry Process
Do not submit times slower than the consideration times. We will not offer refunds for any entries where the times submitted are outwith the consideration times. The organisers reserve the right to make cuts to ensure a balanced programme and the smooth running of the meet. Where this rule is invoked, swimmers with the fastest times will take precedence over those in the same category. Events where restrictions are applied will be selected by SASA East District.
All entry times must be set at accredited competitions (or equivalent) since 1 January 2019, and verifiable.
Entries must be submitted using the events files provided. These can be downloaded from this website after 1 November 2019. Please ensure entries show the full name of the swimmer, full date of birth, registration number and entry time.
Entries must be submitted as long course times only. Short course conversions may be used. Split times (including the men’s 800m freestyle) and times set in first leg swims during relays may be used. A proof of times report must be submitted with the entry file. The proof of times report must be submitted from meets in British Swimming rankings (where the competition is designated or licensed for entry into national competition); or from meets recorded in the FINA rankings; or Swim News rankings; or from an official meet sanctioned by a National Governing body. An exception exists for the women’s 1500m freestyle; those without an accredited time at 1500m, but who meet the consideration time for the 800m event may enter the 1500m. All swimmers must provide an entry time for the 1500m event.
Entries from individuals can ONLY be submitted on the individual entry form available from this website. This is provided for clubs or teams that are sending only one swimmer to the event. Reflecting the additional time needed to process individual entries, the closing date for individual entries is a few days earlier, by 12:00 on 5 February 2020.
Clubs can get instructions on completing entry files from firstname.lastname@example.org.
No refunds will be given after acceptances are published or for entries submitted outwith the consideration times. Fees for rejected entries will be returned to clubs during the event or mailed afterwards.
Closing date for individual entries noon (GMT) Wednesday, 5 February 2020.
Closing date for club/team entries noon (GMT) Monday, 10 February 2020.
