DASA County Sprints 2016

Entry forms for this event will be available from tomorrows session. It is important that you check the form before you fill it out as the 50m events are level 3, and the 100m events are level 1 standard. There are qualifying times set out in the entry pack (ULQT & QTs).

All main squad (and development squad if advised) should enter all 4 x 50m’s. Swimmers with the 100m QT standards should enter these as well as directed.
