City of Bradford Winter Sprint with the Free


Our Winter Sprint with the Free Meet is held at John Charles Centre for Sport in Leeds from 2020, as we have outgrown our old venue at Shipley Pool. This means we now have a 10 lane, 25m pool with colour scoreboard, 25m cool down pool, plenty of balcony seating and a café downstairs which will be open all day.

The meet itself is usually held in November or December each year and consists of all 4 of the sprint events (50m and 100m) for younger swimmers, along with 200m, 400m, 800, and 1500m Freestyle for the more experienced swimmers, then 100m and 200m Individual Medley to complete the events. This is not intended as a restriction though, any swimmer can enter any event if they wish, assuming their current event time is within the cutoff times. Coach times are welcome for entry so if any of your swimmers need a ranked time for any sprint events, this could be an excellent chance to achieve them. Unfortunately we are unable to offer 800m and 1500m Freestyle to anyone under the age of 11 years, this is a Swim England restriction which we of course have to adhere to.

Entry is strictly by SportSys file only, which will be published on this page when available, along with the official Entry Pack form.
