16 years and 17 years and over age groups
Some of you may be aware that Swim England have reversed their previous decision for County Championship competitions to apply an upper age group of 16 & over. As such, we will therefore re-introduce the 16 years and 17 years and over age groups for the 2018 championships. As this is a recent development and has come post the publishing of the entry time criteria, qualifying times for these two age groups remains unchanged. What was the qualifying entry time for the 16 years and over age group will apply to both the 16 years and 17 years and over age groups.
Finally, as the result of a significant increase in pool hire, the entry fee has been increased from £5.50 to £6.00.
All documentation will be posted on the ONB website in due course.
