A huge thank you to all the volunteers who contributed to a fantastic Club Champs 2017.
ASA Championships

Surrey, Regional, Zonal and National Championships

Ages for Championships are usually "age on the last day of the meet". Conditions and qualifying times can be found on the relevant web sites but will also be advertised on the website and via email. If your swimmer has qualifying times then they are expected to enter, speak to your swimmers coach for advice. Please ensure you make your entry in good time before the closing date. If you miss the closing date your swimmer will not be able to participate.


County Championships

Surrey ASA

These are the first major championships a competitive swimmer will encounter. They are held over a series of weekends in Feb/March and are similar to a Level 1 Open meet in that there are only lower consideration times. However it is not an open meet because they are only open to swimmers of clubs affiliated to the relevant County ASA which for EDSC is Surrey ASA. In the autumn of each year, the following years "county qualification times" are published on the Surrey ASA website. They alter a little each year (usually getting faster), but the previous years can be used as a guide. If your swimmer is faster than the time(s) published the club would expect your swimmer to compete. Full Entry information will be posted on the website.


Regional Champs

This is the next level of Championships and are held May/June. Clubs from the South East Region are eligible to enter swimmers for this event who have achieved regional qualification times (these are published on the South East Region website). This is a high level of competition and the club would expect swimmers obtaining these times to compete. Qualifying times need to be achieved at licenced level 3 and above, meets.

Zonal Championships

This is a top level competition before Nationals bringing together three zones, South East, London and South West region. This is a relatively new competition and has been running since 2011, each Zone taking it in turns to host.

National Champs

This is the top level of "age group" swimming for swimmers aged 11-14 girls and boys followed by the National Youth Championship for girls and boys 15+. It is held in July/August and is open to all swimmers who achieve a national qualifying time. These are available from the ASA website. If your swimmer gets this far you probably know what you are doing by then!
