Rushmoor Royals Autumn Open meet

Unfortunately we have had to reject some entries to limit the number of swimmers in each session because of health & safety reasons as well as having to reduce entries so the meet fitted into the available pool time.

If you have been rejected for an event and would like to be put on a reserve list please email me let me know, if spaces become available before the meet I will fill them from the reserve list, numbers permitting.

If you wish to withdraw from an event if possible please can you let me know before the meet so I can offer it to a swimmer on the reserve list.

We are still short of officials for Session 6 on Sunday 18th. If you are a licenced official and are able to help please complete the attached form and send it to officials.rrsc@gmail.com

I am sorry that we have had to disappoint some swimmers but look forward to welcoming the accepted swimmers to our meet.

The new swimming competition structure announced by British Swimming is being implemented from 2015.

For the first time swimmers will be invited to attend either the British Summer Nationals or Home Nation events, depending on their ranking in an event, achieved during the qualifying window.

These championships are for swimmers aged 13yrs and over (age as at 31st December).

Qualification for these Championships will be determined by a top 24 ranking per event and per age from the British ranking list from a qualifying window of 13th March – 31st May 2015.

Read the announcement from British Swimming about the qualification period, announced 18th November, here.

Home Nations Summer Meets

The Home Nation Championships will be for English/Welsh/Scottish swimmers aged 12yrs and over (age at 31st December).

Qualification for these Championships for our swimmers will be determined from the English ranking list from the same window as the British Champs (13th March-31st May 2015) for individuals who have not qualified in that event for the British Summer Champs.  The number of swimmers to be invited will be set by the Home Nation.

There may also be some further discretion around other qualifying methods, set by the Home Nation.
