Minimum consideration times for each event are shown on the attached sheets and will be strictly applied. Conversions from Short Course times are acceptable. The number of heats in each event may be restricted to ensure the meet runs to the licensed timescale. The Championship Committee reserves the right to apply this procedure or to combine heats as appropriate in the interests of the smooth running of the meet. Over the top starts may be used if deemed to be appropriate.
All swimmers must be current registered swimming members of SASA and of Midland District Club. This includes at the time of entry and during the day(s) of competition.

Medals will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed swimmer in each final.
Swimmers will be required to marshal for presentations, which will take place at intervals throughout the meet as shown on the programme. To ensure the meet runs to the licensed timescale the Championship Committee reserve the right to issue medals during the running of the meet and dispense with formal medal presentations.

The current Midland District rule (M.R.7.0) means clubs entering swimmers in District Events must provide names of officials available for each SESSION. This is to ensure that minimum numbers are present to permit accreditation of the meet. Regulations stipulate that each session must comply otherwise the whole meet may lose accreditation. The number to be supplied is proportional to the number of swimmers entered for the Championships, as follows:
♦ 1 - 2 swimmers : 0 officials per SESSION
♦ 3 - 4 swimmers : 1 official per SESSION
♦ 5 – 8 swimmers: 2 officials per SESSION, at least one of whom must be Judge 1 or above
♦ 9 - 12 swimmers: 3 officials per SESSION, at least one of whom must be Judge 2 or above
♦ 13 -16 swimmers: 4 officials per SESSION, at least one of whom must be Judge 1 or above and at least one of whom must be Judge 2 or above
♦ 17 -20 swimmers: 5 officials per SESSION, at least one of whom must be Judge 1 or above and at least one of whom must be Judge 2 or above
♦ 21 or more swimmers: 6 officials per SESSION, at least two of whom must be Judge 1 or above and at least one of whom must be Judge 2 or above
