This is a reminder to all Parents, Coaches and Swimmers. Technically the area between the stands and the edge of the pool is out of bounds to all bar the officials. Rule SW10.17 states that:
Unauthorised persons shall not be permitted in those areas of the pool designated for competition, for the swimmers or officials for the duration of any competition.
Given the constraints associated with movement within the various pools in the ACT where competitions are held it is recognised that it is necessary for spectators, coaches and swimmers to have access to these areas. However this access is strictly limited to allow movement to other areas of the pool. It is not to be used by parents, coaches or swimmers to walk up and down the pool to encourage swimmers competing in a race.
It would be appreciated if parents, coaches and swimmers comply with this rule. Those who do not comply may be warned by the Meet Director and repeat offenders may be asked to leave the pool precincts.
All swimmers, coaches and parents should be familiar with the marshalling procedures adopted at the start of 2018. These procedures apply to all meets run at the AIS.
