East District Age Group Championships (EDAGS): what are they and when are they taking place?
Scottish Swimming is divided into four districts: East, Midland, North and West. Each district supports the clubs and swimmers in their area.
We are in East District.
Every year, SASA East District runs Age Group Championships over several weekends from the end of November to early February. Usually there are three, but this year there are four. The dates are:
- 24-25 November (distance events – 400m+ swims)
- 22 December (50m sprints and mixed relays)
- 12-13 January (200m events and Telfer Cup mixed relays)
- 9-10 February (100m events, 200IM and relays)
For each age group, there are consideration times. Please note that age is the swimmer’s age at the end of 2019 – this is because the competition takes place over several months. It is also because some swimmers from district competitions go on to compete in national competitions and they also use age at the end of the year.
Swimmers have to be faster than the consideration time to enter. And their time has to be accredited (internal times do not count and neither do those from Level 3 competitions).
Most swimmers who compete in the longer distances come from Performance Squad because they are more used to swimming these distances. However, for 50s, 100s and 200IM, we often invite swimmers from Intermediate Squads too, as they also have accredited times.
Since swimmers from all over East District compete in these championships, we really want as many of our swimmers to be involved as possible.
Invitations for round 1 have already been sent out.
Invitations for the sprints and mixed relays will be sent out soon.

Today’s trivia: the first letter of the four letter code for clubs used at competitions indicates the region. Inverleith’s code is EIHX.
