Alan Doyle Memorial Sprint Level 3 9th Dec
(this is a team hosted event)
THIS IS A FIRST COME FIRST SERVED MEET - DEADLINES - SWIMMERS 1st Sept - VOLUNTEERS/OFFICIALS - 1st Dec
This meet is aimed at every swimmer in the Club. Where swimmers do not have an official time, we will enter a calculated time based on any unlicensed times.
Many of you will be aware that Hemel's former Head Coach, Alan Doyle, died unexpectedly late last year. Alan was part of the bedrock of our club and played an active role in the wider swimming community including running the website and social media for the Arena League. To commemorate the anniversary of his death we will be hosting a new level 3 licensed sprint meet at Hemel on Sunday 9th December, the day after the last round of Arena League. The event will comprise 50’s in all strokes with finals plus the 100IM and there will be awards for the most improved boy and girl swimmer. Half of the profits from the day will be donated to the British Heart Foundation.
We are conscious that many clubs and swimmers have expressed an interest in attending this meet and so the rules for accepting entries have been designed to accomodate as many different clubs as follows:
In the first instant swimmers will be restricted to a
maximum number of entries which will not be less than 3 per
swimmer. Swimmers will be scratched starting with the club whose
entry was received last, working backwards in order of receipt.
Initially those swimmers entered in five events will be scratched
from the event in which their entry time is closest to the no
faster than time.
If having scratched all swimmers entered in five events there is still over-capacity then the same process will be followed for those swimmers entered in four events.
If having restricted the number of entries to three per swimmer there is still over capacity, entries will be accepted in order of receipt: that is, first come, first served.
No faster than times have been set as follows;
