CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS 2018

Updated 17-Jun-2018 - All Entries Closed - Please check the Entries Recieved - Start Lists and Heatsheets will be published shortly.

***** IMPORTANT NOTE : Due to existing officials retiring from swimming or their children moving to university we urgently need parents (ideally those that already attend openmeets) to apply to become a licensed official. Please help us, as failure to do so may mean future club championships are unlicensed due to lack of officials. 

Officials ‘J1’ Workshop - Tuesday 20th June from 6pm to 8pm

J1 training is a 2 hour workshop then practical training poolside at openmeets and other competitions with a mentor and a final assessment.

The minimum age to start training is 15 years and young volunteers are welcome at the courses.

Please contact Deborah Bartlett ASAP via email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to book a place or for more information.

Provisonal - Dates and Times. License Numbers will be confirmed later. Items in Red Text need to be confirmed due to potential clashes. All events outside or normal training pool will have a spectator charge to cover the additional costs of pool hire. St Mary's or Calne are used to reduce the length of time of these events.


Entry times

*The CASC internal performance database will not be updated for any Gala's after the closing date for entries and therefore improved times will not be used for heating swimmers. 

Heat sheets will be printed on the night apart from Pre-heated Sessions when you should bring your own please.

Entry times for Sessions 1 & 2 in June/July will be taken from rankings or the *CASC internal database up to and including Sunday 3rd June 2018 

(This is to allow time for the heat sheets and time cards to be printed and guillotined for the sprints events.)

Entry times for Sessions 3-10 in September to November will be taken from the CASC internal performance database and improved times from rankings will be used prior to these sessions – Heat sheets will be printed on the night and handed out. Please note we will generally check rankings on the Friday evening before the weekend's events, this means that generally open-meets from the previous weekend will be included.

The Pre-Heated - Time Trail event for Session 05 - 400 Freestyle (25m sprints) will be printed about 2 weeks in advance (previous 25m times will be used where possible).

Newsflash

We need more licensed officials to run events and to complete behind the scenes roles. Why not start to train as an official? Its not as daunting as you think. Most of the training is done on pool side at a pace that suites you. Join a Judge 1 course to see what it is all about. Questions? Please ask Darren Hall or e-mail the club This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

If you are a parent of a CASC swimmer and have an hour or two to spare each week please contact a member of the committee either on poolside or via the 'contact us' link above as we are always looking for help from committed parents. Support is welcome both on poolside and behind the scenes with club administration / management functions.
