(License SE170171, SE170172, SE170173, SE170174).


This weekend sees the move of the championships to London Aquatic Centre. It's a new venue for many, please ensure your swimmers go to the correct venue!

It's been a great event so far and it wouldn't happen without the support of all the clubs, officials, coaches, event team and of course the swimmers.

On behalf of KCASA we would like to thank all the clubs that have/will host a day or more at the championships.

There are still 560 remaining medals on offer, and 20 trophies. Hopefully, we will see some inspired swimmers continuing the exciting racing we have seen in the first 3 weekends.

We have created a list of those swimmers that have obtained the significant achievement of 700 Fina Points. The current swimmers that have achieved this are here

The Venue

The venue is one of the best swimming venues in the world, and we hope provides inspiration for Kent swimmers.

Entry for swimmers, spectators and coaches will be from 8.30am. Please ensure people don't arrive early as its going to be cold at the weekend, and the security team won't let people in.

All access to the building for officials, spectators, swimmers and coaches is through the Event doors upstairs. Officials must be carrying their ASA cards at all times. Coaches Poolside Passes must be worn at all times.

The venue has an exclusive catering contract with its caterers and will not allow spectators to bring their own food/drink. Spectators may be bag searched for food, and asked to dispose of any food/drink. This is not ideal, but is outside of our control, please ensure your swimmers and spectators are aware of this.

We have agreed with the operators that swimmers can bring their own food. They should take any food through with them. Spectators will not be able to give them food during the event unless purchased on site.

Car parking is limited. There are eleven (11) blue badge park spots and these are on a first come first served basis.

Officials, Spectators, Swimmers and Coaches should park in Westfield Centre, Stratford. The best car park is car park B, aisle 114. If you exit through these doors into the centre, with John Lewis/Waitrose on your left, go up the escalator on your right (not the travelator) to the ground floor. Exit through the main doors to The Street, John Lewis will be on your right and Jamie Oliver Restaurant on your left. Go straight, cross into the Olympic Park at the pedestrian crossing ahead of you. It should take about ten minutes.

Warm- Up
Sessions 13 and 15 (the first each day) both warm-up at 9.10am
Sessions 14 and 16 (the second each day) both warm-up at 1.30pm

Sign-Out
The few withdrawals that may happen, will be on the day before the start of each warm-up at the medals table. Failure to withdraw by the start of warm-up will result in a 10 fine. Please remind swimmers and coaches. Please be aware that many many swimmers were unable to swim in the sprints having obtained a consideration time. Please encourage your swimmers not to pull out unless its on medical grounds.

Presentations
This year we are planning to hold presentations straight after the finals or at the end of the 200 IM rather than at the end of a session.Please make swimmers aware. The top 3 in each final need to be ready to receive their medals on the podium. If this takes too long, then we may reschedule the presentations. The idea is to as much as possible hand out medals in front of a full spectator gallery. Each days schedule is linked below

Saturday 11th Feb 2017
Sunday 12th Feb 2017

The above are subject to change should we suffer any technical issues. Each day should end by 5.30pm
Coach Passes
Many coach passes have been issued, the remainder will be at the entrance desk.
