Qualification period for British Summer Championships announced
The establishment of a new British Summer Championship for 2015 was announced in October as the first headline component of a broader British Swimming Performance Pathway Strategy.
Qualification to this event and to the associated English, Scottish and Welsh end of season competitions will be via invitation based long course rankings produced following a specific qualification period. For 2015 the qualifying period is defined as follows:
All appropriately licensed/accredited long course competitions in the period 13 March to 31 May 2015 (inclusive).
Results from the following specific events will also be included in the qualification rankings:
ASA North West Regional Championships (6 - 7 June 2015)
ASA North East Regional Championships (6 - 7 and 13 - 14 June 2015)
ASA Midlands Championships (6 - 7 June 2015)
ASA East Regional Championships (6 - 7 and 13 - 14 June 2015)
It is anticipated that qualification lists will be published on 10 June, with any additional qualifiers from the above 13 - 14 June events to be published on 17 June.
It is expected that all ASA Regional long course Championships will fall within the main qualification period from 2016 onwards.
The new competition structure has been designed to expose an even greater number of young, talented swimmers to national competition whilst at the same time providing a firm foundation to ensure Britain sees more of its exciting junior talent transition to becoming successful senior athletes.
The 2015 British Summer Championships will be held 28 July – 2 August, in Sheffield.
