Requesting help for those swimmers swimming at Braunstone next weekend (7th / 8th & 9th April).
To all swimming officials, the 2017 Leicester Age Group Meet is licensed at Level 3 which enables all the swimmers attending to qualify for their Regional Championships. At present we are short of officials across all sessions, and if we don’t have enough officials then the licence will be lowered which would mean times cannot be used for regional qualifying times (all seasons).
What we need are licensed officials or those in J1 Trainee training. This is a great opportunity to gain valuable experience in an Open Meet as an official. As the promoter please could I ask you if you haven’t already contacted myself, Derek or Simon and are able to provide some support for the swimmers who are looking at gain regional qualifying times to contact myself via email (darryl.ryan) confirming which sessions you can help.
Session 1: 7th April 1745hrs – 1945hrs including warmup
Session 2: 8th April 0900hrs – 1150hrs including warmup
Session 3: 8th April 1245hrs – 1640hrs including warmup
Session 4: 9th April 0845hrs – 1210hrs including warmup
Session 5: 9th April 1245hrs – 1630hrs including warmup
