On 2. October Madison will swim in Redbridge’s Early County Qualifier. The event stretches over 2 days 1+2. October.
Prior to such competitions we tend to train each day to get fitter. County Qualifier events are held each autumn by many clubs because the County championships are usually held in January / February of each year. At least Middlesex and Essex County hold their in those first 2 months of the year. As this is the flu season, regular training helps to keep the flu away.
Since Madison joined LACPP we belong to Essex County and they have their County Champs entry times published here. Clubs usually download the packs and invite swimmers to enter those competitions prior to the closing date.
Madison has already achieved a few qualifying times for the forthcoming county competition but still attends preliminary meets to get into the competitive mood and I think to meet up with swimming friends.
