January 2013 34 Make certain you have current email addresses of swim clubs you intend to invite. A current list is available at Year Around http://www.swimalberta.ca/links/swim- clubs/index.htm http://www.swimalberta.ca/links/swim- clubs/index.htm http://www.swimalberta.ca/links/swim- clubs/index.htm ASSA (Alberta Summer Swimming Associate)http://www.assa.ca/web/clubDir ectory.php http://www.assa.ca/web/clubDir ectory.phphttp://www.assa.ca/web/clubDir ectory.php All information for the Provincial Championships supplied by email by PSO.

January 2013 35 Upload Meet Package to the SNC website. – This can be done without a sanction and can be updated once the meet is sanctioned – The information can be updated with the sanction number later Distribute Meet Packages at least 8 weeks before meet. Prepare Meet Package

Sanction # Meet classification Meet classification –open/closed invitational, developmental, championship, etc. –Dates of the meet Sessions starting times for heats & finals, warm-up times, actual start time Facility name, location and helpful information (parking, access, hotels)

January 2013 38 Age Groups Scoring Pool details Awards Scratch Deadline Results Distance events – specifics (i.e. 2 swimmers per lane ?) Accommodation information Coaches' Meeting Contents of Meet Package
January 2013 39 Event Schedule Hytek computer entries Responsibility for swimmers – each individual club is responsible for their swimmers; during and between meet sessions Para information (Swimmers with a disability) Contents of Meet Package
January 2013 40 Entry Procedures If possible, make the entry deadline to have two weekends to process information prior to meet. Not always possible, e.g. - provincial/national meets where entry deadline (10 days) stipulated by Provincial/National Section. You should receive: – Hytek file - email, or hard copy of entry grid sheets – Entry fee cheque
January 2013 41 Entry Procedures Prepare check-off sheet, to keep record of information enclosed, e.g. cheque amount & number, Hytek file and/or grids. – Keep all entry information in a file easily transportable. – Take file with you to meet. You have a record to cross-reference with a coach when questions arise re: entries of their swimmers. Insure all Swimmers are registered with their sanctioning body (S/NC or ASSA).
January 2013 42 Entry Procedures Hytek file and/or entry grids – Emailed, couriered, special delivery to home, club office – If receiving grids by FAX, Hytek, or e-mail, ensure clubs send hard copy in mail as well. – Some clubs are lax about entry deadlines. – If you are expecting a club to participate in your meet & do not have entries by deadline, call the club & inquire about entries.
January 2013 43 Copies of Hytek entry information should be given to Meet Office Chairperson. Good communication between Meet Manager & Office manager vital. – Once entries complete, Office Manager can communicate queries re: entries to Meet Manager e.g. too many entries for a swimmer, incorrect entry times - too fast or too slow, etc.. – Meet Manager can then contact club re: such entries. Sorting out questions before the meet starts saves time & confusion at the beginning of the meet. Entry Procedures
January 2013 44 Timing a Meet Meet Managers work closely with Organizing Committee particularly Advisory Referee to ensure length of each session no longer than 4 hours in duration. Sometimes it may be necessary to limit size of some events to fit all events in time allocated. Heats should be controlled in length to approximately 3 - 4 hours, if possible (See page 10 of SACG). ASSA meet sessions could be longer.
January 2013 45 Timing a Meet Finals usually require 2 - 3 hours to complete. For a short course (25m) preliminaries meet, swim double ended, if possible. Use two watches per timekeeper reduces time between heats. Recording done after next heat in the water As you will notice, a long course meet with 2000 swims will require more pool time to complete.
January 2013 46 Calculating Timing Look for the slowest time for each heat in each event & allow another 40 seconds for each heat. Timing out the meet is essential & if done correctly you can usually be within 15 minutes of the actual time it takes. Hytek will provide a timed printout for each session. Inputting 40 seconds between heats provides extra time to deal with unexpected delays e.g. electronic malfunctioning, pad changes, disqualifications, etc..
January 2013 47 Calculating Timing Double ended meets - short course as well as long course. Senior Seed 800/1500 Free - fastest to slowest. Age groups may be separated out for results If you are swimming two/lane - starts must be staggered entry for safety reasons. Provides each swimmer opportunity to start from blocks & avoids collisions that could potentially occur from simultaneous starts.
January 2013 48 Calculating Timing Some ways to speed-up a meet – Consider Time Finals for longer events, particularly younger age groups, e.g. 400 IM, 800/1500 Free. – Limit number of entries in longer events – Start over heads of swimmers in water. – Use good Referee, Starter & Marshall – Swim two/lane in longer events, e.g. 400/800/1500 Free. – Combine all ages then separate out for results.
January 2013 49 Producing Heat Sheets Once entries inputted, corrections made you will have approximately 5 days to prepare heat sheets for copying. Hytek will automatically pre-seed events. −When using this program encourage coaches to submit scratches when received from their swimmers. −This will give you opportunity to delete swimmers from events in which they are entered. −Do this prior to copying heat sheets.
January 2013 50 Producing Heat Sheets Providing you have photocopying capabilities, it may be easier to - Copy session 1 prior to start of meet. Receive any changes during the meet from CofC before printing subsequent sessions. You will find less confusion with coaches, swimmers & spectators if you incorporate changes. You have fewer empty lanes & may speed-up the meet. With sponsors & advertising, you will likely want a well presented book to sell to competitors.
January 2013 51 Producing Heat Sheets Try to find major sponsor to cover copying/collating costs. – They can place an ad in program. Programs may sell for $2.00 - $10.00 & should cover copying costs. – If you choose to print programs for each session, you can still incorporate ads into each program. Arrange to have someone sell programs Officials require approx. 40 copies of heat sheets/pool.
January 2013 52 Producing Heat Sheets Label heat sheets, place in clipboards prior to warm-ups. Coaches require approx. 1 heat sheet/10 swimmers entered in meet e.g. team entered 27 swimmers supply 3 heat sheets. Organize package for each club. – Include: heat sheets, deck entry forms, scratch sheets, relay entry cards, information specific to meet.
January 2013 53 Producing Heat Sheets File folder on pool deck, organized in alphabetical order provides easy access to coaches & allows Meet Manager to place additional information there during the meet. Arrange volunteer to copy heat sheets, final's sheets. – Print out list of clubs & indicate number of copies of heat/final sheets per club. About 1/10 swimmers in the meet. Post list by photocopier.
January 2013 54 Producing Heat Sheets Also need about 40 for officials & maybe 75 to sell. Keep record of number of heat sheets sold - it will help plan future meets. Does Meet Manager want covers for Heat Sheets, Finals, and/or results?
January 2013 55 Concession and Hospitality Supply coffee, cold drinks, veggies, cheese & crackers etc.. for officials, coaches etc.. will keep teams coming back to future meets. Food sponsors can be found for small ad in program.
January 2013 56 Concession and Hospitality Your concession chairperson should have a team of reliable assistants to help during sessions. – A visit to pool deck during sessions is a good gesture appreciated by officials. – Depending on pool facility, it may be possible to have food available, purchased or donated, that can be sold to swimmers, parents, etc.. – Some pools do not permit food to be sold to visitors. These pools may have their own concession available.
