The Herts Schools Association are planning on the following for the 2021 Inter-District Champs (subject to change):
1. The 2021 Herts Primary Schools Inter-District Championships will go ahead as normal (May 2021 tbc) and thus any 2021 District Primary Schools Trials galas will will go ahead as normal (April 2021 tbc).
2. The 2021 Herts Secondary Schools Inter-District Championships (Mar 2021) will have a modified structure for 2021.
- The Junior category (years 7&8) will be split into Year 7 and Year 8 with each comprising at least 6 swimmers (Boys and Girls). This is to accommodate the years 7's specifically as they will have missed the Primary champs as year 6's this year.
- The Year 7 group (which are year 6's for this year), will swim the same events as usual for the Junior category ie. 100m IM, 50m in each stroke and Free and Medley relays. In addition there maybe a squadron covering Year 7, year 8 (Junior) + Inters ( years 9, 10) + Seniors (years 11, 12, 13) but this has not been confirmed yet.
- The year 7's will be selected from attendance at District secondary schools and may be based on submitted/Swim England times,
- The year 7 & 8's results will be combined for the winners of the Junior category.
- Note that the above will lengthen the Secondary gala from normal so we hope that you will understand in the circumstances.
We apologise for the cancellation of this year's galas and hope that the changes we plan to make for the 2021 Secondary gala will go some way to provide the year 6's in 2020 with some additional opportunity to swim for their District in 2021.
