2022 Regional Championship Update

Due to the ongoing circumstances, it is challenging, at present, to set the qualifying times for entry into the 2022 Regional Championships in April/May. This is due to both limited current data within rankings, as well as the circumstances and guidance in the run up to and during the Championships being unknown.

The Region appreciates that clubs are keen that times are available to assist coaches in swimmers event entries in the run up to the Championships, therefore we are going to operate a two tier entry system as detailed here. This will give a flexible entry approach should guidance change and any restrictions remain or are increased.

As with the Regional events run during 2021, all current plans may have to be altered depending on any changes in guidance given by the Government and Swim England. The decision on spectators will be made in the run up to each Championship date (Gala 1, 2 and 3).

At present the relay events usually run at these Championships are in the planned schedule and will only be removed if this guidance is given.

Full schedules and conditions will be available on the Championship website in the New Year.
