2022 SE National County Team Champs – Scotland West Team
The Swim England National County Team Champs – or Inter Counties as it was known – originally involved just the 33 English counties of the ASA.
In 1999, the competition was opened up to four Scottish districts (East, West, Midland and North) as well as two Welsh regions (North and South).
The Championship is held at Ponds Forge Sheffield annually in October and in 2022, it is on Sunday 2nd October.
So this weekend, in preparation for the Team Championships, the Scotland West Team travel to Sheffield on Saturday with a training/final selection session at Ponds Forge in the afternoon. Team building sessions will follow dinner on Saturday evening and the Meet starts at 12.45pm on Sunday.
