A Proposed New Swimming Competitive Structure for 2014-2015. News! British Swimming have announced plans for the 2015 National Championships. Qualifiers for  the British Champs 2015 will be the 24 top ranked GB swimmers (in each event) within a "specified qualification window". Those not in the top 24 will be able to swim in English, Scottish, Welsh or N.Ireland Championships, at about the same time.  This Devolution in British Swimming is NEW!  Ages will be as of 31st December.
More Info  The "Final" Word : 10/11YO's in Counties; 50m sprints in the Regionals and Nationals!

 

Harry Rennolls has been selected to attend an ASA England Training Day. This "day" is to take place at Bradfield College, Reading, on Sunday 2nd November 2014.  The ASA blurb is:

"The strategic goal of England Programmes is the development of a system that will support and enhance the development of high quality senior athletes for the future, and seek to identify individuals with the potential to achieve senior podium success. Programme activities engage with swimmers whose age and stage in the pathway is of relevance to a trajectory onto World Class programmes and potentially the achievement of senior success in future Olympic cycles."

Great Words! Hope the Actions match up!

 

Dean has also been invited to a "top coaches" Symposium.

 

Harry is swimming the 100m free for Kent in the (National) Inter-County Championships in Ponds Forge, Sheffield, on 19th October 2014. Good Luck Harry. See the ASA CHAMPS page for details.

News: Harry did 53.63 sec for the 100m free (SC), fastest in England by a 14YO Boy in 2014. His last-leg free split in the 4x50 Medley was 23.63 sec.! Kent came 11th, so stay in Division 1. Lancashire won, for the 11th time in a row.
