The final will be held at Tynemouth Pool on 15/09/2019.

Coaches will carry out their own Junior League training where necessary within their own squads and team selection will be announced (on noticeboards and website) approximately two weeks before each round along with time schedules and team bus depature times.

Please note that team selection may vary between rounds. Team selection will be based on speed, technique and weekly attendance.

Should a swimmer not be chosen please do not take this as a negative and if you feel you need clarification, please do not hesitate to approach a coach.

All swimmers will be expected to compete in a Chester-le-Street ASC club hat and wear club t-shirts poolside.


Transport is by bus from the Red Lion pub, close to Chester-le-Street Leisure Centre. Swimmers must travel to the competition on the coach provided by the club. The coach will leave at 07:50, but please arrive before 07:45 so that we can depart on time.
