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:
- Senior Championships (16yrs +) will replace the Open Championships.
- Junior Championship will be aged 15yrs & under.
- 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.
