    Information on swim meets

    Swim meets are held in either short course pools (25m) or long course pools (50m). You can submit your entries at the meets. The meet will be graded either level 1,2,3, County, Regional and National.

    Level 1

    Level 1 meets are always long course and have lower times and no upper times. Swimmers must be faster than the lower times to enter these meets.

    Level 2

    Level 2 meets are always short course these have lower times and normally no upper times. Swimmers must be faster than the lower times to enter these meets.

    Level 3

    Level 3 is usually where most swimmers start. Meet promoters will issue a set of entry times at a level 3 meet they include upper and lower times. Swimmers must be faster than the lower times and slower than the upper times. The upper times are to ensure the same swimmers are not winning all the medals all the time.

    County level meets are run by each county. We sit within Lancashire county (website here). Each year the county will issue a list of qualifying times to enter the Championships. Swimmers who achieve the times in the qualifying period can enter the championships.

    Regional

    Regional level meets are run by each region. We sit within Swim Northwest (website here). Each year the region will issue a list of qualifying times to enter the Championships. Swimmers who achieve the times in the qualifying period can enter the championships.

    National level meets are run by the Home Nations, British swimming and the ASA. These meets are either by qualifying times or rankings.
