About

The Gratitude Games Emergency Responder swimming competition will be hosted by East Manchester Leisure Centre.

Para Competitors

Para Swimmers may enter all events.

At the time of entry competitors must indicate their Para swimming classification or confirm they hold a Certificate of Swimming Disability issued by Swim England/Scottish Swimming/Swim Wales which will be valid at the time of competition.

The competition format will be based upon Para Swimmers inclusion within the schedule of events.  Swimmers will be seeded within the able-bodied programme on their submitted times.

Swimmers holding a Certificate of Swimming Disability must present their certificate to the referee before their race takes place.

Any other sport specific information

The event will be held under the Games general conditions and Fina Masters Swimming Rules  except where these conditions vary from those Rules.

The competition will be held in a short course (25m) format.

Any person entering the 18 – 24years age group must have attained the age of 18yrs on or before 27th April 2022.

All events will be seeded and competed on submitted times.

All events will be competed on a Heat Declared Winner basis.

Acceptance of entries to all events will be managed in accordance with the constraints of the available time within each competition session.

Submitted entry times must be of a level that the entrant reasonably expects to achieve.  Submitted times faster than can be achieved will have a detrimental effect on the management of the competition session.  

The Event Organisers reserve the right to close entry to events should the capacity be reached before the advertised closing dates.

Medals

Medals will be awarded to those swimmers placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in each age group for each event.  Where there are less than four in an event a -1 rule will apply, e.g., where there are 3 competitors awards would be made to the first 2 placed swimmers).

Should there be an event with a sole competitor, then the swimmer must equal or better their entry time to qualify for an award.
