County Champs 2017 Age Groups

Last Updated on Sunday, 03 July 2016 13:59 Sunday, 03 July 2016 13:57

At the last Coaches forum, those at the meeting asked that the county changed the upper age group band, i.e. 16+ to having an age group solely for 16 year olds, and then an additional 17+ age group.

Contact was made with the Swim England talent team to seek the permission to change the age groups. Swim England advised that the Pathway document, issued by British Swimming, has not been changed, and therefore Hertfordshire ASA will need to abide by the document. This  means that the top age group for Hertfordshire ASA Counties 2017 will be 16+

Confirmation has been received that only counties which comply with the pathway document will be issued with a licence. Regional Licensing Officers are being reminded that only counties which comply with the Pathway document can have a licence issued to them.

Long Course Entry Times for County Championships

Tuesday, 14 June 2016 17:03

We have recently been asked by several coaches if converted Long Course times can be used for entry to County Championships 2017.

In previous years the answer to this has been no as at the time that was the policy of the ASA. In light of recent changes, we will now accept converted Long Course times.

The stipulation of the Swimming Committee is that any converted time MUST be converted using Hy-tek, this will ensure that all conversions are made using the same algorithms.

We hope this answers the questions and clarifies the situation for all clubs.
