2020 Summer Meet Qualifying Window Announced

26 Sep 2018

The Qualifying Window for the British Summer Championships and the Home Nation summer meets in 2020 will run from Friday 13th March – Sunday 10th May 2020 (inclusive).

The cross-Home Nations and British Swimming Performance Implementation Group (PIG) have decided to shorten the 2020 Qualifying Window compared to previous years based on feedback from the competitive swimming community.

This is primarily to more closely align with the end of the second major training block of the season, increase the lead in time for athletes/coaches to the end of season meets and lessen the cross-over with the schools’ examination period. This is particularly important for meet organisers to note.

The British Summer Championships and the three home nation summer meets continue to form part of the Performance Pathway Strategy aimed at supporting the UK’s junior swimming talent on their journey towards senior medal-winning international performances.

Entry to these key end of season events will remain by invitation only, from performances recorded in the above Qualifying Window.

Entries into the British Summer Championships will only be accepted from competitors registered as members of a British Swimming home nation club (Swim England, Scottish Swimming or Swim Wales).
