Rules

Overhead (dive over) starts may be used during the meet. Please make sure your swimmers understand how overhead starts are done. 

Use of audio or visual recording devices, including a cell phone, is not permitted behind the starting blocks or in changing areas, rest rooms or locker rooms. 

In the event of there being sufficient withdrawal from the heats of an event, which would enable the number of heats to be reduced, the Referee may at his discretion either amalgamate heats by filling vacant lanes in a heat or heats with those swimmers whose heat has been cancelled. 

All events are to be swum under Swimming Australia rules. 

 

Marshalling Procedure 

Once swimmers have reported to the Marshal they must remain in the Marshalling Area until directed to their starting positions by the Check Starter. Failure to remain in the marshalling area may result in the swimmer being debarred from that event. 

Warm Up: 06:30am - 06:50am 

In the interest of swimmers safety, the following general pool procedures for the competition pool must be observed throughout the meet:

All lanes in the Competition Pool, with the exception of LANE 1 is NO DIVING, with entry to the lane ‘ feet first, from a sitting position’. Swimmers can only push start, and should observe a ‘keep left ‘ rule at all times.

LANE 1 (Start End) is reserved throughout the whole of the warm up period for dive sprints and walk backs. Swimmers must clear the lane immediately, and must use caution when doing a Backstroke start.

The usage of LANE 8 will change. Up until 15 minutes before the end of the WARM UP it is reserved as a circle swimming lane. For the last 15minutes it is reserved for dive sprint and walk backs and turns practice as per Lane 1 instructions.

LANES 2-7 are reserved throughout the whole of the warm up period as circle swimming lanes.
