European Youth Olympic Festival is held under the patronage of the IOC, and is the pride of the European Olympic Committees with 25 years of tradition. EYOF is the first top European multi-sport event aimed at young athletes aged 14 to 18. There is a winter and a summer edition, which take place in two-year cycles, in odd-numbered years. The EYOF belongs to the European Olympic Committees (EOC).
The event takes place under the Olympic flag, and is rich with Olympic traditions: from the burning flame to athletes’ and officials’ oaths. It is at the EYOF that many of Europe’s inspiring sports stars of tomorrow take their first steps on the international stage. And while some may enjoy EYOF as a stepping-stone to Olympic greatness, all who participate take home friendships and experiences to last a lifetime.
The EYOF symbolically unites the youth of Europe in one Athletes’ Village. It is a gateway to the Olympic Games, with many medallists having gone on to win medals at an Olympic Games, and gives top young athletes a first taste of what an Olympic event is like, at the same time encouraging more youngsters to practice sport and lead a healthy lifestyle.

Invitations have be sent out for the British Summer Championships, based on performances in the recently closed Qualifying Window.
This year we have introduced a short period where these invitations must be accepted. The closing date to accept these initial invitations is 17:00 on 14th June.
Entry will then reopen for the British Summer Championships on 16th June with everyone who was invited but not entered removed, and a new list calculated (with places offered to the next eligible ranked swimmer).
Entries will open to the Swim England, Swim Wales and Scottish Swimming summer meets on 17th June, which will allow for any changes made to the British Summer Championships.
We are hoping that by implementing this system we can ensure as many swimmers as possible can compete at the prestigious British Summer Championship.
The Best Fest features eight different open water events, catering for swimmers of all abilities.
Best Fest 2019 has a varied programme of race and challenge style events that include clockwise and anticlockwise courses, traditional point to point swims, a time trial, a relay event and the Olympic standard ‘marathon distance’ 10k.
