The Swim England Swimming Leadership group have issued a statement cancelling all national events scheduled to take place in the latter part of 2020.
Additionally, the Swim England Swimming Leadership Group considers that it will be neither possible nor practical to stage regional swimming championships in early November of this year. After very careful consideration, the group has determined that regional short course championships will not take place in 2020.
The group has also decided that no competition licences will be issued at levels one or two for the remainder of 2020. Meets that have already been granted licences for forthcoming events in 2020 at levels one and two will have the option to be downgraded to level three or four in the first instance.
It should be kept in mind that licensing at all levels remains suspended until further notice, with all currently issued licences being provisional in status.
