  • Kent Development Meet 2018

    9th October 2018

    All the great swimmers start with the grass roots of the sport, and that starts with events like the County Development Meet. We have kept a similar format to that of 2017 with the only changes being a reduction in the number of relays. Our aim is to encourage more entrants, and to 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 KCASA 2018 Championship's consideration time although the can enter events for which they have not achieved times. Also, we have added a points table to enable selection for the Kent Development Camp in 2019. (See conditions for full details). And to help spread entries swimmers can enter a maximum of 6 events. Also, please note the changes to poolside pass conditions. All the relevant documents are below: ConditionsUpper Limit TimesEvent ProgrammeIndividualEntry FormSummary Entry FormSportsystems Entry File (this needs to be...
