The qualifying window for the British Summer Swimming Championships and associated home nation summer competitions closed on 31st May with the qualifying swimmers being announced on Tuesday 9th June.
City of Oxford Swimming Club is delighted to have an incredible 13 swimmers who have qualified for the British Championships and 19 swimmers who have qualified for the Home Nations’ Championships (17 for England, 2 for Wales). In addition, they have 10 relay teams who have qualified to compete at the championships, the highest number ever in the club’s history.
The establishment of a new British Summer Championship for 2015 was announced in October as part of a broader British Swimming Performance Pathway Strategy.
The new competition structure has been designed to expose an even greater number of young, talented swimmers to national competition whilst at the same time providing a firm foundation to ensure Britain sees more of its exciting junior talent transition to becoming successful senior athletes.
