Regional Championships- road closures in Luton
In accordance with our tradition of Regional Championships clashing with major events, this year, the Sunday of weekend 2 clashes with the Luton Carnival. If you are travelling to the pool from the west you may encounter road closures, details of which can be found HERE. Please allow extra time for travelling to arrive in good time for warm up. These road closures should have no impact on anyone travelling from the A1 or from junction 10 of the M1. In addition to these closures the event at Duxford may also cause delays for anyone travelling from the East.
Regional Swimming Championships - Weekend 2- A Presentation for Parents
During the second weekend of our Regional Long Course Swimming Championships there will be a presentation for the parents of swimmers. The ASA England Programmes Team are visiting all regional championships to give a presentation to parents on Athlete Development and how parents can support this.
Backstroke Ledges at Luton
The East Swimming Committee would like to remind all those attending the East Swimming Long Course Championships this weekend that specific lanes will be allocated during the 'sprint lanes' section of each warm up for those participating in Backstroke events in that session to use the starting ledges.
For swimmer development, all entered swimmers are welcome to try the ledges during the warm down periods that follow each session.
Swimmers are responsible for adjusting the height of the ledge themselves via a simple dial attached to the mechanism.
If a swimmer does not wish to use the ledge for their race, they should ask the technical official appointed to their lane to remove it.
Best wishes to all swimmers competing this weekend.
