  • KCASA Swimming Development Meet 2017 details posted

    30th September 2017

    We have just seen some amazing performances at the World Championships by GB, and at Summer Nationals by an outstanding cohort of Kent Swimmers. All these great performances start with the grass-roots of the sport, and that starts with events like the County Development Meet. For those that missed it last year, the county had some major changes to the format last year, which we were very successful. The only major change is changing to Age at year end rather than end of meet. Our aim is to encourage more entrants, and give more swimmers a chance to win a Kent Medal. As the title says it is a development meet, so county qualifiers can't enter swims for which they have obtained a championship's 2017 consideration time. NB: they can enter events that they have not achieved times for. Also we have added a points table to enable selection for the Kent Development Camp in 2018. (See conditions for full details). To help spread entries swimmers can enter a maximum of six events. ...
