As we are sure you are aware, the number of children forced to self-isolate as a result of a Covid positive case at school is increasing, and swimmers self-isolating from school are also unable to attend swimming.
The Coaches have therefore taken the decision to run the July 2021 round of galas as Level X only and not as Club Champs.
The premise of Club Champs is that as many members of the Club as possible take part and it doesn’t seem fair for so many swimmers to be excluded from this, through no fault of their own.
However, any Club records achieved during these Level X galas will be recorded as such.
The plan is to run Club Champs at another time, when hopefully things are looking better with the easing of restrictions and hopefully when more swimmers are able to take part in this.
We’re sure you understand the reasoning for this decision.
