The ASA have advised that any swimmer who is turning nine years of age between now and the end of March 2014 will need to upgrade to a category 2 to enable them to compete in galas during early 2014 ( January to March).
There is no charge for this until the renewal period, January 2014 to March 2014.
All swimmers who have their 9th birthday during 2014 will need to upgrade to category 2 when they renew their ASA membership. However, those swimmers with birthdays during the renewal period will not be amended by the ASA until submission in March 2014.
Please collect a form from Gail Burns (Membership Secretary) as soon as possible. This needs to be completed and returned to the ASA by 8th December 2013.
