  37. Contents of Meet Package • Age Groups • Scoring • Pool details • Awards • Scratch Deadline • Results • Distance events – specifics (i.e. 2 swimmers per lane ?) • Accommodation information • Coaches' Meeting

  38. Contents of Meet Package • 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)

  39. 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

  40. 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).

  41. 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.

  42. Entry Procedures • 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.

  43. 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.

  44. 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.

  45. 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..

  46. 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.

  47. 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.

  48. 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.

  49. 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.

  50. 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.
