Licensed Events

Licensed competitions are the only events as which entry times for National, Regional and County events can be achieved. Kent County Championship events are licensed.  Depending on the level of meet applied for, the following additional rules must also be complied with.

  • All licensed events at Levels 1, 2, and 3 must be held with electronic timing, and ASA qualified officials must be used
  • Licensed events can only be held at certain times of the year so that they do not clash with County or Regional events

Full information on the licensing process can be found on the ASA website, including downloading forms and their submission.

Meet Licensing has Changed in South East Region

All applications for meet licenses and post meet reports must be submitted by e-mail to meetlicensing@southeastswimming.org. The completed forms and supporting documents should be included as attachments to the e-mail.

The region has established a licensing panel to scrutinise all license applications and post meet reports. This means that applications which don't adhere to the published guidelines will be identified and clubs asked to take remedial action before a license or a future licence will be granted.

Please make sure that you use the correct versions of the forms (see below).

A single application may only cover a series of meets if the conditions, entry/limit times etc. for the series are the same.

Separate applications must be submitted for competitions with different conditions, times etc.

To help meet organisers all of the required forms are now available here:

Useful additional documents

This mechanism is active now and any applications submitted to meetlicensing@southeastswimming.org will be processed.

The ASA has published revised criteria for Licensed Meets to come into effect on 1st Match 2015.

There are significant change. One important aspect is that these are no longer guidelines, mandatory regulations. Any organisation applying for a license must ensure that they understand the revised regulations.

The scope includes

  • Limits on session lengths
  • Minimum number of officials
  • Black-out dates
  • The inclusion of a full programme including 800m/1500m in level 1 and 2 meets at certain times of the year
