Programme of Events
See attached sheet
Entries are invited from swimmers with disabilities who are registered members of a swimming club affiliated to Midland District and hold current SASA/ASA/WASA membership. Supplementary conditions apply to these swimmers and these are available by email from firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate on the summary of entries form that you have entered swimmers for Disability events.
Consideration times are shown on the attached Sheets and will be strictly applied. The number of heats in each event may be restricted to ensure the meet runs to the licensed timescale. The Championship Committee reserves the right to apply this procedure or to combine heats as appropriate in the interests of the smooth running of the meet. Over the top starts may be used if deemed to be appropriate.
There will be no charge for Spectator entry.
Start sheets will be on sale at a cost of £1 and will be available at the start of each session.
Withdrawals in advance of the meet can be made to Kirsteen Adams by email to email@example.com. Withdrawals on the day must be made to the recorders within 15 minutes of the start of warm up.
A marshalling system will be in place. Coaches are requested to listen carefully to all announcements and send swimmers to marshal two events in advance of their swim.
Awards will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed swimmer in each event for each age group.
Swimmers who achieve ‘Too Fast’ times will receive certificates recording their time.
Swimmers will be required to marshal for presentations, which will take place at intervals throughout the meet as shown on the programme. To ensure the meet runs to the licensed timescale the Championship Committee reserve the right to issue medals during the running of the meet and dispense with formal medal presentations.
All swimmers must be current registered swimming members of SASA and of Midland District Club. This includes at the time of entry and during the day(s) of competition.
Coaches Pass - £15 to include start sheets and meal between sessions on Saturday and Sunday. Coach passes without lunch cost £5.
At least one Coaches Pass must be purchased by participating clubs. Poolside access will be permitted only to those in possession of passes. This will be strictly enforced due to limited space on poolside. Passes must be ordered in advance and cannot be purchased on the day
Closing date for entries is NOON ON SUNDAY 13TH OCTOBER 2019.
The current Midland District rule (M.R.8.0) means clubs entering swimmers in District Events must provide names of officials available for each SESSION. This is to ensure that minimum numbers are present to permit accreditation of the meet. Regulations stipulate that each session must comply otherwise the whole meet may lose accreditation. The number to be supplied is proportional to the number of swimmers entered for the Championships, as follows:
♦ 1 - 2 swimmers : 0 officials per SESSION
♦ 3 - 4 swimmers : 1 official per SESSION
♦ 5 – 8 swimmers: 2 officials per SESSION, at least one of whom must be Judge 1 or above
♦ 9 - 12 swimmers: 3 officials per SESSION, at least one of whom must be Judge 2 or above
♦ 13 -16 swimmers: 4 officials per SESSION, at least one of whom must be Judge 1 or above and at least one of whom must be Judge 2 or above
♦ 17 -20 swimmers: 5 officials per SESSION, at least one of whom must be Judge 1 or above and at least one of whom must be Judge 2 or above
♦ 21 or more swimmers: 6 officials per SESSION, at least two of whom must be Judge 1 or above and at least one of whom must be Judge 2 or above
AOE operator and Recorder count as J2.
Trainee Officials will count at their qualified level (ie. Judge 1 trainee counts as Timekeeper). Mentoring may be provided depending on numbers of qualified officials and must be requested in advance by e-mail to the District STO Convenor, firstname.lastname@example.org
Volunteer roles: Announcer, marshalls and runners are provided by the organising club(s) and are not counted.
Clubs unable to comply with this Rule may request assistance from another Club, providing expenses if necessary, and inform the STO coordinator accordingly. Any club falling below the required minimum will be required to pay a fine of £20 per session for each missing official.
Requests for Officials will be issued in due course. It is not sufficient for officials to turn up on the day – prior notification online at least 2 weeks in advance is essential – this can be done by following the below link.
Anyone assisting at 2 consecutive sessions on either day will be offered lunch. All lunches must be ordered at the same time as the online Officials registration and at least 2 weeks in advance. No additional lunches can be offered on the day.
Officials will assemble for briefing sessions in a venue which will be announced. A list of duties will be posted in advance and officials are requested to report at least 30 minutes in advance of the start time of the gala for briefing. All designated Recorders should report to the Championship Convenor one hour in advance of the start of the session.
Volunteers for this meet, other than STOs, will be co-ordinated by Blairgowrie and Menzieshill Whitehall. Offers of assistance of any sort, from any club, are much appreciated. Volunteers are required for Announcing/Marshalling/start sheet distribution / posting results/ and presentations.
