Summer Festival 2021

Swim England East Midlands are pleased to release the Conditions, Programme and Consideration Times for the Summer Festival 2021 on 31st July/1st August 2021 at Harvey Hadden (all subject to licensing at Level 1). This event running is subject to the progression through the Government time line as planned, due to this no payment will be taken until entries have been confirmed.

The event incorporates all ages and events given by British Swimming and Swim England with the addition of the 12 year old age group. The programme looks a little different to the programme members will be used to. This programme has been produced to reduce travel to and from the venue, and allows for close monitoring of the number of swimmers in the facility. The monitoring of swimmer numbers during a set period will allow us to cater for a greater number of swimmers and swims than we would be able to with a mixed programme under current Government Guidelines. The sports hall facility at Harvey Hadden will also be used if required for the event.

The Region appreciates that due to a number of factors not all swimmers will have had the opportunity to take part in level X or recent level 4 meets, to be inclusive as possible times will be considered from 1st January 2019 - 27th June 2021 all levels of event including level x and level 4.

Any Covid-19 protocols will be released along with the accepted entry list. At present the ability to house spectators is unknown, if this is possible spaces will be limited and details on how to access the spectator area will be confirmed as soon as it has been confirmed whether possible or not.

We would also like to gauge the interest from volunteers and officials to help us run this meet. If you are a volunteer or qualified official and wish to help out at this competition, please can you complete our form: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/EMfestival_VolInterest

2020 Championship Cancelled

All Regional Long Course Championships in 2020 are now cancelled and will NOT be rescheduled. Further information about the 2020/2021 season will follow when available but please bear with us as this will depend on easing of the COVID-19 Government lock-down precautions, facilities reopening and directives from Swim England.

2020 Championship Postponement

In line with Swim England events and government guidelines, all competitions organised by the Region held between now and the end of May have been postponed due to the rising concern and guidance from the government over the current outbreak of the Coronavirus COVID-19.

All entry fees, poolside accreditation fees and camp attendance fees that have already been paid will be refunded.

Swim England East Midlands will look at the potential of rescheduling the events later in the year if that proves to be viable and in line with calendar expectations from Swim England.

We will update as soon as we have further information to give out.
