Download Draft Programmes for Division 1 and Division 2 (as at 13 Sep 2017)

Somerset were runners-up in 2002 and 2014, third in 2012 and 2015 and fourth in 2016. And this year's' stellar line-up will be competing against Division 1 teams from counties across England, Scotland and Wales in a spectacular display of swimming talent cheered on by a packed spectator gallery.

The event takes place in two short course (25m) pools at the same time – one for Division 1 races, the other for Division 2. There will be two heats for each event on the schedule with heats in Division 2 starting about 20 seconds after those of Division 1. The heats for individual races will be seeded according to entry times but the team events will be randomly drawn.

Individual events are contested over three age groups – 12/13 Yrs, 14/15 Yrs and 16/17 Yrs. There are 100m Freestyle, 100m Backstroke, 100m Butterfly and 100m Breaststroke events for each age group with one swimmer competing from each county. There will also be 4x50m Medley Relays held for each age group and one Mixed 6x50m Freestyle Relay. The mixed relay consists of teams made up of one boy and one girl from each age group.

Point scoring is by place with first place worth 20 points, second place worth 19 points, third worth 18 and so on. This scoring continues right through to one point for 20th.
However, if a swimmer is disqualified, they receive no points.

At the end of the competition, the bottom four teams from Division 1 are relegated to Division 2 for next year’s event with the top four from Division 2 replacing them in the top flight.
