At every event we need the support of non technical helpers to ensure they run smoothly and our swimmers have the best experience possible.

There are lots of different jobs; from taking the money at the door, helping manage the swimmers, ensuring results are published or joining our IT team.

If you have a little spare time available or want to do something other than sitting in the gallery and would like to help us run events then we would love to hear from you. Just complete the form here and let us have your contact details.

Changes to the format of County Championships

At the recent national meeting of regional licensing officers changes to the format of county championship regulations were agreed for immediate introduction. It is hoped that these changes will bring clarity to the guidelines set out in the National Competition Pathway.

If Sussex did not to follow these regulations we would not be able to license the Championships.

The changes that affect Sussex are:

  1. Senior Championships (16yrs +) will replace the Open Championships.
  2. Junior Championship will be aged 15yrs & under.
  3. Introduction of heats and finals for 50m and 100m events in every age group (10/11, 12, 13, 14, 15 years & 16/over).

You can find more information about how these changes will be accommodated into the 2018 Championships.
