Competitor Ages for Peanuts League 2012

As the HSL competitions are held under A.S.A. Laws and ASA Technical rules we have contacted the ASA for guidance on how we should handle our 9 year old swimmers in the Peanuts league galas.

Please reference below copy of Jane Davies response to our query and based on this guidance the definitive answer from the league on this issue;

  • Swimmers MUST be 9 by the 16th June to be able to swim in the lower age category, other than that swimmers are age at 30th June.
  • So a swimmer turning 9 after the 16th June but before 30th June CAN NOT swim

·         Equally a swimmer turning 10 (or any other age) after the 16th June but before the 30th June swims in the older age group.
