09 Feb   LEICESTERSHIRE AGE GROUPS AND COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIPS
The entries for the main county championships have now been processed and the committee is able to confirm that all entries have been accepted providing the times submitted were within the qualification times, achieved in the 12 months up to the closing date of the 17th January 2014 and appeared on the ASA Rankings list. This does not include the 9 year old swimmers and all entries were accepted providing the times fell within the published qualifying times.

Please check the ACCEPTED ENTRIES and report any errors to your Club.    A list of  REJECTED ENTRIES  and reason for rejection is available.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to offer the facility of a secondary entry for any swimmers just outside the qualifying times as was hoped. The number of entries was slightly higher than anticipated following the decision to tighten up on the qualification time and entry criteria.

A full briefing sheet giving guidelines and advice for those who have not competed at the pool in Corby, including directions and car park details mwill be published soon.

There will be a swim shop at Braunstone and a stand selling t shirts & hoodies with the designed specifically for the Leicestershire County Championships at Corby

06 Feb   LEICESTERSHIRE & LINCOLNSHIRE LONG DISTANCE CHAMPIONSHIPS - UPDATE 4TH FEBRUARY 2014

Following the previous communication it has been agreed between the two counties that an additional heat will be added for both the 800m & 1500m event. Swimmers who are now on the accepted list will be contacted by their club and a full list is SWIMMING/EVENTS

Withdrawals will still be taken until 10am on Sunday 9th February 2014 by email: withdrawals@leicestershireasa.org. If any reserve swimmer wishes to attend the gala every effort will be made to allow them to swim if a spare lane becomes available on the day. However, it will be necessary to swim in the lane allocated to the original swimmer.

Warm Up & Gala Times have been adjusted slightly to accommodate the extra heats and are as follows:

800m Freestyle:            Warm Up: 12.45pm           Start: 1.15pm            Estimated Finish Time: 3.45pm

1500m Freestyle:          Warm Up: 4.15pm             Start: 4.45pm            Estimated Finish Time: 8.00pm

Warm Up Lanes for both Galas:        Lanes 1-4: Leicestershire            Lanes 5-8: Lincolnshire

There is a limit of 12 swimmers permitted in any lane at one time but based on the number of swimmers this should not pose a problem.

There will be no charge for spectator entry for either event.

The programme is be available to download but is subject to any late withdrawals. SWIMMING/EVENTS

Each club will be allocated two coach’s passes for up to 10 swimmers. Any clubs requiring additional passes should email secretary@leicestershireasa.org

29 Jan   LEICESTERSHIRE & LINCOLNSHIRE LONG DISTANCE CHAMPIONSHIPS
Many apologies to all swimmers for the delay in publishing the accepted and rejected lists for the above event which takes place on Sunday 9th February 2014.  These can be found SWIMMING/EVENTS

Both counties have been allocated the same number of entries for each event and unfortunately there are a few rejections for both events.When determining those swimmers to be rejected the same percentage has been used for each age group so that the younger swimmers are not penalised.
All swimmers on the rejection lists will be put down as reserves and if a swimmer from their county in their age group subsequently withdraws from the event, the reserve swimmers will be contacted and given the opportunity to swim.

Withdrawals will be taken until 10am on Sunday 9th February 2014 by email: withdrawals@leicestershireasa.org. If any reserve swimmer wishes to attend the gala every effort will be made to allow them to swim if a spare lane becomes available on the day. However, it will be necessary to swim in the lane allocated to the original swimmer.

Warm Up & Gala Times are as follows:

800m Freestyle:                 Warm Up: 12.45pm                          Start: 1.15pm                                 Estimated Finish Time: 3.30pm

1500m Freestyle:               Warm Up: 4.30pm                            Start: 5.00pm                                 Estimated Finish Time: 7.30pm

There will be no charge for spectator entry for either event.

The programme will be available to download a few days before the Gala, subject to any late withdrawals.

Each club will be allocated two coach’s passes for up to 10 swimmers. Any clubs requiring additional passes should email secretary@leicestershireasa.org

19 Jan  
ENTRIES
All entries have been received and are being processed. Lists of acceptances and rejections will be issued in due course. We will be looking at the level of entries for each gala and if there is space to accomodate additional swimmers a Secondary Entry will be allowed. Clubs will be notified of the process and conditions. Preference is likely to be given to swimmers who have just missed the qualification times AND have the times on Rankings.
