The Essex Executive Management Committee held an emergency meeting last night as a result of listening to feedback from our members on the schedule previously published.

We have agreed to investigate potential changes to the schedule to allow reasonable representation of competitors across distances and age groups.

We would appreciate your patience whilst options are investigated and validated by the swimming committee, and we will look to republish within the next week.

Please also be aware that all members of the Essex committees are unpaid volunteers. The swimming committee members have spent an enormous amount of time and effort working with numerous Essex coaches in designing the previous schedule to reflect changes requested by coaches and as such, we will only look to slightly adapt the existing schedule to increase swimmer participation.

We thank you for your patience.
