PNSC TIME TRIALS RESULTS

PNSC LEVEL 4 TIME TRIALS RESULTS

Well done to everyone who competed at the time trials on Saturday 17th June! Results can be found HERE

For those new to swimming, when you are ASA registered your times from LICENCED* meets are uploaded to the Swim England website and recorded as a record of your individual best times, otherwise known as personal bests (PB).

*See bottom of this post which explains the criteria for the 4 different levels of meets – this time trial meet was LEVEL 4.

Note Novice Club Championships are not licenced and so your times are not recorded on the ASA website for that one.

You can find your PBs    HERE    you can either enter your ASA membership number or if you don’t know it enter your swimmers surname and find them that way.

Over time you will see a record of each event and each time you have improved your time. If you click on the event name you will find a full list of each time you have swam the event, date, event name and time achieved. It also graphs your times achieved over time so you can see your progression.

A few photos from the time trials can be found on our FACEBOOK PAGE HERE
