Meet Promoters should be aware that for the reminder of this year Licencing will be restricting the number of meets that Clubs can run to a maximum of 2 each. This restriction of 2 Licenced Meets will not apply to Level 4 meets. As in previous years there are some dates which are blacked out and no other Licenced Meets will be permitted on these dates.
Currently 24/25th July and 31st July/1st August are blacked out for the Regional Festival of Swimming.
No Licence will be issued for a Meet unless it has gone through the County Licence Officer first. The Licence application process is being updated with new forms and requirements. These new forms are yet to be published by Swim England but will be available shortly. In addition to the Meet pack there will also be a requirement to include information around COVID Risk Assessments. Fuller details can be found in the Return to Competition document.
Any application for a Licence using old Forms or missing COVID information will be rejected by the Regional Licencing Officer.
Further information and updates will be published when available.
