Meeting feedback


9 March 2021:

  • Following feedback from the Relay Championships and ACT Championships it has been recommended that the Relay Championships revert to being held on the afternoon of Speedo Sprint heats with the Speedo Sprint heats being held in the morning.
  • The committee discussed holding information sessions for swimmers ahead of the primary school regional carnivals which would cover starting, starts, finishes and basic rules.
  • The committee discussed a range of issues relating to competition and the winter calendar. A number of clubs have provided papers to the committee however it was felt that all clubs should have an opportunity to provide their views to the committee as issues relaing to winter meets, such as hosting of meets, also needed to be considered for summer meets leading up to Christmas. The meeting was acutely aware that meets are an important source of revenue for clubs and this cannot and should not be ignored.
  • The committee agreed to reconvene on Monday 15 February to arrive at a position on the competition calendar for the remainder of the years and how the associated meets would be managed.
