Selection Criteria for the 2022 ICG

Only children born between 2007/ 2008/ 2009 inclusive (13 to 15 year’s olds) will be eligible to participate and MUST LIVE within the Coventry City Boundaries (i.e. parents pay council tax to Coventry City Council). The issue of where the swimmers live is a specific point in the Team Selection conditions of the competition by the City Council and must be adhered to.

The Team will consist of four boys and four girls, plus two swimming coaches, one male and one female. Full information on the Games will be released in due course. 

For the selection this year we have to have the final list of swimmers, details, entries and digital photos & passport copies back to the council by January 25th 2022 at the very latest. Due to this the selection criteria for the 2022 team, Swimmers will be considered for selection from their performance in competition between September 1st 2021 and December 12th 2021. Performances at these Competitions will then be ranked and rated against FINA international points. Highest ranked swimmers in each event will then be selected until the allocated team size is reached. Some selections may be made to balance the team in terms of the Relays. A maximum of two swimmers per event can be selected.

The number of events that a swimmer can swim is 4 individual events plus two relays. The events available are still to be confirmed but in previous years they have been 50, 100, 200, 400m Free, 50, 100, 200m Backstroke, Breaststroke & Butterfly, 200m IM plus 4x100m Free & Medley Relays and Mixed Free/Medley Relay (2 boys/2 girls).
