On the day of the competition, withdrawals must be made via completion of a withdrawal form(Appendix 5),which will also be available from the control suite. The latest that a swimmer can withdraw from an event, is the point at which the warm-up starts for the session in which the race is situated, after this point, clubs will be fined for withdrawals.

If a swimmer fails to attend their race without withdrawing using the appropriate methods outlined above, then a fine of £5 per race will be issued to their club. It is the responsibility of the Club to ensure that fines are paid and that swimmers are present for their races.
