What is it?

It is a fun opportunity for swimmers to practice some racing skills in the absence of competitions due to COVID-19.

Swim England will publish leaderboards at designated times throughout the racing period to celebrate success and Chester-le-Street ASC will publish internal results as for any normal gala, with age groups as follows;

  • 9 and under
  • 10
  • 11
  • 12
  • 13
  • 14
  • 15
  • 16 and over
  • Open (all members)

Who is it for?

Any Swim England category 2 member can take part in Level X Racing. Swim England are offering a free upgrade to Category 2 for current Category 1 members for the remainder of 2020 to enable them to take part in Level X Racing, however to participate in 2021 swimmers will need to be a fully paid Category 2 member.

Only swimmers who would usually be attending that particular training session should take part in Level X Racing sessions, and all swimmers should take part in their usual training bubbles with social distancing maintained throughout.
