4 05/04/2017 Decision to Host a Meet The decision to host a swim meet should be made sufficiently in advance to allow proper organization. Determine the timing and type of meet in concert with Head Coach (see Meet Options) For a new club, with inexperienced officials, consider hosting a developmental meet first and then move on to more complex meets such as an invitational or provincial meet. Get information about the meet calendar for the area. This will affect your ability to attract swimmers, as well as availability of officials. On complete and submit the Meet Sanction Application along with the Meet Package (you will require username and password from your meet manager/ club registrar to log on this site).

05/04/2017 SNC Web Site Coaches must use entry area to submit teams’ entry file Include details in the meet package Site validates swimmer registration number, birth date, club, etc. Use of validation of entries prevents delays with load of results following the meet Notification of entry file received to MM Can post status of entry file Accepted, rejected, pending Can send s to coaches from this page

17 05/04/2017 SNC Web Site Good for version control - choose display of only the most recent file

18 Contents of Typical Meet Package
05/04/2017 Contents of Typical Meet Package Sanction form Meet classification - open/closed invitational, developmental, championship, etc. Dates of the meet Facility name, location, and helpful information (parking, access, hotels) SNC Safety Rules Warm-up times, Starting times, Finish times for sessions, prelims/finals Maximum session – 4 ½ hrs Entry Limit (if any) and entry deadline Qualifying times, de-qualifying times Format: timed finals, prelims, finals Deck entries Entry Fees - individual, relays Relay rules Meet Rules, including starting procedures Age Groups Pool details Scratches Scoring Awards Results Distance events - specifics (i.e. 2 swimmers per lane, limit # of swimmers, etc.) Coaches' Meeting, time, location Event Schedule Entry Grids - encourage Hy-Tek computer entries Billet/accommodation information Contact information Responsibility for swimmer – each individual club is responsible for their swimmers; during and between meet sessions

19 Entry Formats Hy-Tek High School Meets Entry closing dates
05/04/2017 Entry Formats Hy-Tek Quebec teams use different software High School Meets Printed Grids, Delivery formats (fax, mail) Time Cards completed by participating coaches (novice, dual meets) Entry closing dates Payment of fees Confirmation of entries

20 05/04/2017 Time Management Swim Ontario regulation that sessions are not to exceed 4½ hours Take into account number of lanes, single/double ended, etc Number of lanes Single/double ended SWAD – participation should be taken into account Events Level of swimmers

21 Hints on Calculating Timing
05/04/2017 Hints on Calculating Timing Look for the slowest time for each heat in each event and allow another 30 seconds for each heat. Timing out the meet is essential and if done correctly you can usually be within 15 minutes of the actual time it takes Hy-Tek will provide a timed printout for each session. Interval of 30 seconds between heats provides for extra time to deal with unexpected delays Electronic malfunctions or pad changes Disqualifications Delays to move starts to other end of the pool, etc.

22 05/04/2017 Optimize Time Consider Timed Finals for some of the longer events, particularly in the younger age groups 400 IM, 800/1500 Free. Limit the number of entries in longer events Use an experienced Referee, Starter and Marshal. Consider keeping swimmers in the water at end of races, and starting “over the top” Swim two per lane in the longer events such as 400, 800, 1500 Free but consult Electronics on implications. May need all manual times. Double ended meets - short course as well as long course. Senior Seed 800/1500 Free - fastest to slowest all ages combined. Age groups may be separated out for results.

23 Producing/Selling Heat Sheets
05/04/2017 Producing/Selling Heat Sheets Produced in time between entry deadline and start of meet considering likelihood of significant changes to entries Programs for finals cannot be prepared until prelims have finished Access to fast photocopier Sponsors and advertising inserts, endorsements Copies for spectators Pricing Estimated number is # of swimmers per session / 2 Make master available so more can be made, if necessary Copies for officials, coaches minimum of 2 copies per team entered 1 copy per lane for timers 6-12 copies for senior officials (Clerk of Course, Chief Timer, Assistant Chief Timer, Recorder/Scorer, Stroke and Turns Judges) Versions with heat start times for Referee, Session Ref, Starter, Electronics Copies for swimmers posted on deck, in check-in area, if marshalling Carded/cardless; positive check-in vs. scratch only

24 Food for Officials and Coaches
05/04/2017 Food for Officials and Coaches A good supply of water, coffee, cold drinks, veggies, cheese and crackers, cookies, etc. will keep officials and teams coming back to future meets Consider refilling water bottles to reduce waste Meals may be offered between sessions if 1 or more prelims/timed finals plus finals Food sponsors can usually be found for a small ad in your program. Be sure to visit the pool deck with water and snacks during the sessions for the officials.

25 05/04/2017 Concessions Your concession chairperson should have a team of reliable assistants to help during all sessions. Depending on the 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 allow this as they have their own concession. Decide if meet T shirts (or other swimming supplies) will be designed and sold Decide if vendors (eg. Aquasport) will be invited to large meets Check facility guidelines Agree on revenue sharing

26 05/04/2017 Billeting Determine whether as host club, you are going to be responsible for billeting some of the out-of-town swimmers The placing of billets can be a real chore if not organized by a committee, but also impacts the attractiveness of your event Remember to consider legal risks and exposure Establish the number of swimmers than you can comfortably handle Indicate in your meet package whether limited billeting is offered

27 05/04/2017 Billeting (con’t) A team of individuals with a co-ordinator is preferred: copy all billet requests that arrive with the entries, for the billet co-ordinator if you depend on other clubs in the area to assist in the billeting, make sure you talk to these clubs well in advance of the entry deadline to solicit support keep a list of chaperone names and contact number's in case of billeting problems be available during and after the first session to solve any last minute billeting problems Prepare a list of billets and their billeting family & phone number that can be given to the chaperone of each club requiring billeting maintain spots for 1-2 swimmers that may not have made the original list supplied (usually a few last minute cancellations create some openings) maintain a complete and up-to-date list of billet assignments, available at the pool at all times, for emergency contact and follow up

28 05/04/2017 Organizing Officials If necessary, ask for help in your meet package and have the clubs send their list of names / phone numbers / and qualifications along with their entries Divide responsibility between senior officials and local Officials' Chairperson to arrange for officials In any event, have the majority of the positions filled before the start of the meet. Confirm status of officials’ assignments to regional sanction office 10 DAYS prior to meet Publish schedule and assignments as soon as it is finalized

29 05/04/2017 Organizing Officials Arrange spare Timekeepers on call in case of sickness or no-shows. Organize the Officials' Room with required supplies for that session Designate a person to greet and sign-in the officials as they arrive, direct them to the heat sheets and equipment needed for their position and answer any questions. All officials working a session must be recorded Have all positions posted in the Officials' Room. If there are openings for other sessions, officials can sign-up where they see the empty positions.

30 Awards Form a committee of 2 - 3 people to handle the awards
05/04/2017 Awards Form a committee of people to handle the awards Calculate the number of medals, ribbons required Order awards approximately 3 months prior to the meet Decide if you will be presenting medals during the meet. If you present on deck, who will do the presenting, and when will you present? Consider how you will find the winners if presentation is not done close to the event in which they swam Session referee and starter must be briefed if the session is interrupted for awards

31 05/04/2017 Awards Hy-Tek can produce and print result tags for events after scored. These can then be attached to the ribbon/medal. If you are not using Hy-Tek, name/event tags should be arranged before the meet and once the event is completed Volunteers can hand write the winning information on the ribbon/medal Use large envelopes to organize the ribbons/medals by club and arrange for Clubs to pick-up their awards at the conclusion of the meet. It is very costly to mail awards. Good idea to mention in coaches meeting

32 05/04/2017 Facility Relations Check with the pool administration at least 1 month before the start of the meet to ensure all arrangements are in place. Suggest a letter outlining all requests Garbage collection, tables, chairs, podium, bleachers, warm-up and session times for life guards, numbers of swimmers in pool for warm-up,etc. Get to know the staff at the pool you will be working with during the meet Check a few days before the meet to ensure requests are in order Access rules for photographers Electronics equipment set-up, operation and maintenance/repair

33 Equipment Clip boards White/chalk board for marshalling and/or results
05/04/2017 Equipment Clip boards Pens/pencils, sharpener Staplers, staples Paper clips, elastic bands Calculator Starting gun with ammunition Microphone for starter Stop watches Whistle Extra entry cards Relay card stock Duct tape For distance events Bells (1 per lane is best) Lap counters for starter, session ref White/chalk board for marshalling and/or results A reliable photocopier Computer equipment, printer, printer cartridges, extension cords All software packages needed Session Time signs for spectators Signs for Posting Results Masking Tape White paper Coloured paper for master lists DQ slips on coloured paper Scratch forms on coloured paper Receipt book for meet fees Coloured vests for safety marshalls (nice to have)
