This is the first time the regionals have been done with East and West Midlands separate so the times are slightly different from previous years.

Request to swimmers: if there are any particular events you are targeting please let me know so you attend the appropriate open meets as not all meets have every race available.

I have listed below some FAQs – if there is anything not covered please ask – thank you.

Conversion times
The qualifying times are based on short course swims, long course swims can be used as qualifying times, there are a number of way conversions can be done so the final time can fluctuate the best conversion tool to use is: http://www.sportsys.co.uk/  > swim time converter, this time isn’t guaranteed until the entry file is released.
