Swim England National County Team Championships
The County Team Championships takes place in two short course (25m) pools at the same time – one for Division 1 races, the other for Division 2. There are two heats for each event on the schedule with heats in Division 2 starting about 20 seconds after those of Division 1. The heats for individual races will be seeded according to entry times but the team events will be randomly drawn.
