The National Arena League is the gold standard in swimming league competition and therefore the fastest team possible will be selected to race. Coaches will use their discretion to balance the demand on some swimmers and while times from British Swimming rankings will be used to decide the team, coaches reserve the right to make adjustments where they see fit.
Failure to confirm attendance before the published deadline may result in a swimmer being replaced without notification so please make sure you are prompt in ticking your name off on the team sheet which will be found on the notice board at Queen's Park Sports Centre in advance of each round.
All swimmers are expected to travel with the team on the team bus. If you are unable to do so you must inform a coach or team manager as early as possible. If you are not travelling on the team bus you are expected to arrive at the venue no later than 40 minutes prior to the scheduled warm up to join the team on the bus for a team talk.
