Key Meet Information

  1. A swimmer’s age shall be determined as at midnight on 31 December 2022.
  2. “Youth/Youths” are defined as competitors being 15 years old or over.
  3. “Age Group/Age Groups” are defined as competitors being between 11 years old and 14 years old (inclusive).
  4. The closing deadline for Age Group entries and full payment is 2 March 2022.  The closing deadline for Youth entries and full payment is 20 April 2022. 
  5. ALL entries must be submitted electronically using the Online Club Entry Form or the Online Individual Entry Form using ranking times (at any level) gained since 1 January 2021 at any licenced meet.
  6. There will be a Qualifying entry and a Consideration Entry to this competition.  Both should be entered at the same time and both have the same closing deadline.  Qualifying – eligibility governed by Qualifying Times (match or better), the achievement of which will guarantee entry into the relevant competition subject to the Promoter’s Conditions. Consideration – eligibility governed by a lower set of Consideration Times and Upper Limit Times equal to the Qualifying Times. The achievement of the Consideration eligibility does not guarantee entry into the relevant competition and Consideration entries will be managed/accepted/declined to achieve an optimal number of competitors for the meet.
  7. ENTRIES WHICH DO NOT MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF QUALIFYING OR CONSIDERATION WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.
  8. Two (2) Event files containing the full schedule of events for the Age Group competition and two (2) Event files containing the full schedule of events for the Youth competition are available for download. Each pair of event files consists of a Qualifying entry file and a Consideration entry file.
  9. This meet will be run using Hy-Tek Meet Manager software. Entry files from compatible team management software (e.g. Swim Manager or Team Unify) will be accepted.  SportSystems Entry Files are not compatible with our online systems and cannot be accepted.
  10. Competitors (or their representatives) who are not intending to/who are unable to swim in Heats or in “Heat Declared Winner” events must notify the Meet Manager by submitting official withdrawal forms (completing all form fields); electronically before midday on Friday 11 March 2022 for the Age Groups weekend events (the day before the start of the competition), or electronically before midday on Friday 29 April 2022 for the Youths weekend events (the day before the start of the competition), or in person no later than 50 minutes before the start time of the first event of each session.
  11. WITHDRAWALS SUBMITTED OUTSIDE OF THESE TIMEFRAMES WILL NOT BE PROCESSED.
  12. Please assist the Meet Manager by submitting timely withdrawals to ensure that the sessions run to an optimal schedule with no empty lanes.
  13. An announcement will be made of the finalists and 2 reserves for each event as the meet progresses.  The announcement will include a time by which finalists and reserves can withdraw from a final.  A fine will be levied on the club under whose name the swimmer is entered if a swimmer does not withdraw from a final in time by completing the withdrawal form at the Withdrawals table and does not swim.

Para Swimmers – Competition & Entry

Specific events within the SE London Summer Championships 2022 have been designated as Multi Classification events. Please see the Meet Conditions for details. Multi Classification awards will be issued for Age Groups and Youths separately – not across the entire Championships as in previous years,

Para Swimming entries must be submitted electronically using the On-Line Individual Entry form (see below). It is imperative that Competition Secretaries and Coaches check the published Accepted Entries Reports to ensure that their Para Swimmers have had a Classification recorded correctly.

Access to Poolside

A poolside pass is required for access to the pool area.

Coaches, Team Managers and Chaperones must apply for a pass through the Swim England National Poolside Pass system which can be accessed at this link.  The pass must be downloaded by the individual before attending the meet.  Pouches and lanyards will be provided at the entrance desk.

Technical Officials must wear their licence on poolside.  All other volunteers must apply for a photo ID at this link.

Spectator Entry Fees

Entry to spectate the meets shall cost £10.00 per day (regardless of arrival/departure time) for all individuals 16 years old and over.

There will be no printed programme available for this meet – we encourage all attendees to download and print the online programme at home prior to your arrival.

Start Lists and Results

Live start lists and results will be provided during the meet in the HyTek Meet Mobile app.  The app can be downloaded from both Apple and Google app stores.

Meet Entries

We have updated our on-line meet entry form to allow individual entries to be made for Masters and Para Swimmers.

The form looks different but it operates the same way for Club competition secretaries in allowing you to upload your meet entry file in either an SD3 or HY3 file format.  The confirmation of what we have processed is now displayed for you on line so you will not be getting a separate email from our Meet Admin to confirm what we have received.  You can also delete an existing entry file and upload a new one if you have made changes before the closing date.  You can also withdraw a swimmer from a specific event.

Any Masters or Para Swimmer making an individual entry should use this online form too by selecting the “Individual Entry” option.  Para swimmers will be asked to enter their classification.  Clubs should also use this option to enter Para Swimmers.
