Swim England Update on Competitions

Swim England Update on Competitions

On Wednesday 27th May, Swim England issued a statement cancelling all National Events scheduled to take place in the remainder of 2020.

In respect of swimming, this included the Swim England National Winter Championships, traditionally the culmination of the domestic short course swimming season.

Last week, FINA also announced that the 15th World Swimming Championships (25m) would take place on year later than planned, in December 2021.

The above actions are responses to the uncertainties surrounding the conronavirus pandemic.

In light of the above information, the Swim England Swimming Leadership Group considers that it will be neither possible nor practical to stage the Regional swimming championships in early November this year. After very careful consideration, the group has determined that Regional Short Course Championships will not take place in 2020.

The group has also decided that no competition licences will be issued at level one or two for the remainder of 2020. Meets that have already been granted these licenses for forthcoming events in 2020 will have the option to be downgraded to a level three of four meet in the first instance.

Swim England will be writing to the limited number of promoters whose meets fall in this category to inform them of this change.

Notwithstanding the above information, it should be kept in mind that licensing at all levels remains suspended until further notice, with all currently issued licences being provisional in status.

The Swim England Swimming Leadership Group will issue a timeline for the resumption of competition, licensed or otherwise, including Masters, once appropriate information is known.

The group has adopted this stance, rather than suspending all competition until an arbitrary date, as its members are keen to see the competitive element of our sport return as soon as it is safe and reasonable practicable to do so.
