ANational Arena Junior Swimming League meeting at the city’s Regional Pool was quickly followed by the return of the Swim England Level X competition - a licensed meet allowing swimmers to use their times to register for Level 4, Level 3 and regional competition entry and qualification in the future. The virtual event will be held at Jack Hunt School Swimming Pool until August.

COPs Head Coach Ben Negus said “It’s been great to be back! It’s been 14 months in which we’ve had just one opportunity to race, so whilst this is a small step back to the norm we know, it’s been great to take that step and get the racing suits on. It was good to see so many happy, smiling faces on deck.”

Results from the events are not yet known as they run for four months.
