East Midland Championships 2016

East Midland qualifying times and schedules are now available.


This is the first time the regionals have been done with East and West Midlands separate so the times are slightly different from previous years.

Request to swimmers: if there are any particular events you are targeting please let me know so you attend the appropriate open meets as not all meets have every race available.

I have listed below some FAQs – if there is anything not covered please ask – thank you.

Conversion times
The qualifying times are based on short course swims, long course swims can be used as qualifying times, there are a number of way conversions can be done so the final time can fluctuate the best conversion tool to use is: http://www.sportsys.co.uk/  > swim time converter, this time isn’t guaranteed until the entry file is released.

I have swum 32.97 and the qualification time is 32.9, can I enter?
Yes 32.9 as an example means swims from 32.99 and faster qualify.
