Number of Swimmers Per Event

All swimmers who have achieved the automatic qualifying time shall be accepted for that event. If there is space available, swimmers who have not achieved the automatic qualifying time but have achieved the base time may be accepted. Those swimmers who are closest to the automatic time shall be accepted first. The number of additional swimmers that can be accepted will be determined on an event by event basis. The target number of swimmers for each event is as follows.

Event Age 10/11 Ages 12, 13, 14 Ages 15, 16 17 & Over
All 50m 14 20 15 20
All 100m (except fly) 14 20 15 20
100m fly 10 15 15 20
All 200m (except fly) 12 18 14 18
200m fly 10 14 8 12
All 400m 10 15 10 12
800m/1500m No event 8 8 8

The number of swimmers accepted mhas had to be adjusted to ensure that times are "progessive". No swimmer has been accepted with a slower entry time than a swimmer in a younger age group who has been rejected. 

There are no 800m/1500m events for age 10/11.
