LANCASHIRE AGE GROUPS AND CHAMPIONSHIPS 2022
The 2022 Lancashire County Age Group and Championships will take place over three weekends.

Saturday 22nd Sunday 23rd January
Saturday 29th Sunday 30th January
Saturday 5th Sunday 6th February

All three weekend with be at Liverpool Aquatics Centre, as Manchester Aquatics Centre will be closed for refurbishment during this time. As Liverpool’s spectator capacity is less than a third of Manchester’s, spectator seating will be issued via a ticket system, more information in the coming months. Because of this we will be heavily relying on our streamed live output during the event.

We are currently planning to stream all three weekends, to help keep the entry price of the championships down we looking for companies to partner with us to reduce the cost to the swimmer. If you know of any companies or individual who would be able to support us, please could they contact Rick Atkinson directly rick@wiganswimming.co.uk.

The programme of events is currently being working on and once a draft version is available it will be published, as in previous year, there will be finals for 50 and 100 metre events.

Consideration times will be the same as they were in 2020 and have published below, times will be accepted from the 1st January 2020 and 31st December 2021 from a licensed meet (Levels 1,2,3,4 & Level X), no split times will be accepted.

Hi there everyone, as you will know the competition season is starting again, which is great. However, gala’s cannot be run without Officials.

There are two levels of Official, J1 and J2. These are not difficult qualifications to achieve and if you have in the past spent some time watching your child going up and down, you may have a fair idea of what should happen.
At the moment the course can be done partly online, then the practical during a local competition. We are obliged to supply Officials at some competitions or can be fined.

If you are interested in helping us out, please get in touch with either myself or Bob Thompson, who is our qualifed Referee.
