The countdown is on to the ASA’s biggest event of the year, the ASA National Summer Championships, after the qualification period for the event opened last week.
The 2015 ASA National Summer Championships will take place at Sheffield’s iconic Ponds Forge International Sports Centre from 4 – 9 August and see swimmers from five age groups and in multi-classification para-swimming races battling it out to be crowned ASA champions.
The Championships will form part of a new swimming structure in Great Britain whereby the top ranked swimmers in each event (18 for 800m / 1500m Free, 24 for all other individual events) will be invited to compete at the British Swimming Summer Championships.
The next ranked swimmers (15 for 800m / 1500m Free, 20 for all other individual events) at ASA affiliated clubs – or who have chosen to be ranked as an English swimmer – will be invited to compete at the ASA Nationals.
The rankings will be based on swimmers’ performances at level 1 meets between 13 March and 31 May 2015 as well as certain designated ASA Regional Championships in June 2015.
