6th/7th Mar 2010: BAGCATs - Waterlooville

Age Group Competition

British Swimming have decided to withdraw the GB Points and Age Group correction factors used as the basis for awards in our Age Group championships (BAGCATS).

In 2010 we will retain the same categories, but will use FINA points as the basis form calculation.


Swim Suit Rules

From 1st January 2010 all competitions in England, Scotland and Wales will be applying the FINA rules in relation to Swimsuits for swimming (excluding Masters and Open Water) competitions.

More Details on Swim Suit Rules

There is extremely aggressive price cutting on some of the existing suits that don't conform to these rules. We advise you to take care ensure that suits conform to the new guidelines.

For clarification: This competition does not requires swimsuits to be on the FINA approved list.

Championship Conditions

Please note the following changes to the Championship Conditions for 2010.

Provision for entry of one time outside the qualifying times to complete a BAGCAT series has been removed at the request of coaches.

6a. Addition of penalty of £10 for swimmers who do not withdraw from a heat and do not swim.
6d. Allowance of combined Male/Female events for 800m/1500m.

Clarification that ASA Law on permitted costumes will apply to this competition.
