In light of Swim England’s decision to move the County window for 2021 Swim England Essex have taken the following steps

  1. The Essex County Championships will now take place in June and July – the exact dates and programme will be released on 1st December 2020
  2. The closing date for 2021 county championships will be 31st May 2021
  3. Licensed qualifying times will NOT be required by any Age group- this means that Time trial times will be accepted for all age groups
  4. Previously released numbers will still apply – there will be NO qualifying times for all age groups in 2021
  5. The Age on day remains 31/12/2021
  6. There will be big changes made to the structure of the championships next year so as to allow for social distancing – to accommodate this we plan to hold the Championships over 4 weekends.
