Qualifying window for the domestic summer meets update.

Further to the British Swimming Communication yesterday (http://bit.ly/2QqbLka) stating that British Swimming and the Home Nations have decided to suspend the published Qualifying Window dates and process with immediate effect, British Swimming are now in a position to provide further advice on the updated invited process for the summer meets.

The guidance around staging events is subject to the change over the coming weeks. Working on assumption that it is variable for the 2020 British Summer Championships and 2020 Home Nation Summer Meets to take place, British Swimming will be inviting athletes on the basis of retrospective long – course performances achieved in the period 1stJuly 2019 – 12th March 2020. No performance after this date will be considered. This is in the case even if some meets take place in May.

For Para- Swimmers, the qualifications process will remain the same, however the qualification window will be slightly longer, with performances from 1st April 2019 – 12th March 2020 being considered. The top 20 swimmers per event, scoring more than 550 British Para – Swimming points, will be invite.

Only performances that feature on the British rankings (www.swimmingresults.org) and have been achieved at licensed meets will be eligible.

The process for invites, including notification dates, will be announced in due course. Given the current circumstances, your understanding of the need for this change to the process is appreciated.      

Further information will be published by British Swimming in due course.
