Each Temporary Membership:

  • will provide the competitor and the meet organisers with a basic level of insurance cover
  • will enable the results achieved at the licensed meet to be uploaded and viewed in the Swim England Rankings Online Database

It remains incumbent on each such competitor entering this meet, who is relying on Qualifying Times which are not registered on the Swim England Online Database, to submit sufficient documentary evidence of their entry times upon application.
