How do I register?
To enter the competition, please go to the Registration page, fill in all the details on the registration form and hit submit. To confirm your place please then go to the Payment page to pay your entry fee and secure your place. Places are limited and your spot will only be secured on receipt of payment. If you have problems using PayPal, contact us on BristolBlueComp@gmail.com for bank details.
How long have I got to enter?
Registration closes at midday on Saturday 24th Feb or when all 52 places are filled, which ever comes first.
Mono or Bi Fins
Due to the amount of pool time we have, athletes will only be able to compete on Sunday in either DYN or DYNB. The disciplines will run at the same time alongside each other but athletes will not be able to do moth dynamic disciplines. Athletes will need to select Mono or Bi-Fins when filling in their registration form, but can amend this up to 1 week before the competition should you change your mind.
Can I change my AP?
In the same way as changing your dynamic discipline, you can change your APs up until midday on Saturday 24th Feb. After that APs will be set and Top Times will be published.
Fees are £105 per athlete
Payment can be made on the Payment Page
We run our comps to the highest standard we can make them, not to make a profit. We put all the entry fees back in to the event, paying for extras to make it the best it can be. We only spend the money once we have it in the bank so giving refunds once it has been allocated will mean we risk making a loss and are unable to host future comps.
As such, our refund policy is simple - if another athlete takes your spot then we will refund the full amount of your entry fee no problem. If however we are unable to fill your place with another athlete then we will not be able to offer a refund of your entry fee.
In previous years we have had high demand for places and operated a waiting list so were able to fill all the places and refund all athletes who were unable to compete.
Scoring and prizes:
Points will be awarded for each discipline as per the AIDA scoring system. Each performance is converted into points using the following scales:
Static Apnea: 1 second of immersion = 0.2 points
Dynamic Apnea (DNF/DYN/DYNB): 1m of distance = 0.5 points
For the purposes of determining overall winners only, an uplift of 15% to performances of DYNB to ensure results are comparable to DYN-MONO performances.
There will be medals for the top 3 male and female athletes in each discipline and a trophy for both male and female winners. Overall male and female winners will be determined by combined sores for static and dynamic disciplines and receive a medal and trophy.
There will also be a prize will be for Best Newbie. These prizes will be awarded to the male and female athlete entering their first comp with the highest overall combined score.
AIDA ranking will be given for all disciplines entered.
Competitors must be a member of a National Freediving Association such as the BFA.
Competitors must hold a recognised Freediving qualification.
Your medical statement MUST be signed by a doctor within the 12 months of the competition in order to compete, even if you tick No to all medical conditions listed. Failure to provide this will forfeit your entry to the competition. Your entry fee will not be refunded.
What to bring (other than your swimmers):

In advance we will ask you to send us a copy of your signed Liability Release and Medical Statement signed by a doctor. This will helps speed up registration and support new COVID safe protocols.
