For Licensing applications received on or after September 1st 2022:

  • All meets licensed at Levels 1 or 2 MUST provide a secondary strobe where it is requested by an athlete at the time of entry unless a secondary strobe cannot be provided at the meet for technical reasons.

In the case that a secondary strobe cannot be provided at the venue a full explanation of the issues preventing the provision must be provided with the licensing application and forwarded to the National Licensing Officer for recording purposes and to allow Swim England to investigate fully.

  • Meet conditions must advise athletes that “a secondary strobe will be provided where it is requested by the athlete at the time of entry”.

If this cannot be met, for technical reasons only, it should be stated in the conditions and a full explanation be submitted with the Licence Application.

  • For licensing applications received on or after September 1st 2022, all meets Licensed at Level 1 or 2 MUST have a minimum depth at the starting end of 1.35 metres.
  • Applications for the subsequent calendar year would not be accepted until after September, with no more than 8 months in advance at other times.
