The Promoter this year is Mark MacDonald - if you have any questions please contact him.
Next event is 400m Freestyle on 9 November. Entries to Mark MacDonald are still open until Sunday 26 October
Remember the Conditions:
To qualify for end of year trophies swimmers aged 9 and under need to have swum 4 events or more, swimmers aged 10 years and over need to have swum 8 events or more.
Entering and not turning up is not sufficient – you must have actually swum for the event to count in you list of total events swum (if you are DQ’d that still counts as a swim!)
Entries will be posted on the noticeboard/eNoticeboard the Wednesday or Sunday preceding each event - please check your entry is correct. If you enter an event and do not have a recorded time for the event, you will swim with all the other swimmers who are without a recorded time. This is irrespective of your age or speed.
The FINA Technical Swimming Committee have issued an interpretation of what is meant by Hands Separated (relevant for breaststroke and butterfly turns and finishes). This means that hands can touch but they should not be one on top of the other. This is different to what was previously understood. From now on, the new definition will be used.
Statement of the FINA TSC:
Related to the new FINA Rules about separated hands as mentioned in SW 7.6 (Breaststroke) and SW 8.4 (Butterfly) please note the statement of the FINA TSC as agreed at the FINA TSC at the Meeting in Bangkok (THA) on 6& 7 December 2013:
”Separated” means that the hands cannot be stacked one on top of the other. It is not necessary to see space between the hands. Incidental contact at the fingers is not a concern."
What a great night! Many thanks to everyone who supported this to make it a sell out event and giving the evening a great atmosphere.
Congratulations to all those who received awards for Club Champs, to Sian Barnes and Toby Everett who won the Endeavour Awards and to our new Captains: Ellie Watson, Cathy Thomson, Ollie Fitt and Ollie Cook.
I know a few of the younger ones needed to go home before the end so did not get to see the club video prepared by Tom Davis, so please see the link below.

Have a Great Christmas and New Year and we'll see you back for training on 6th January 2014, ready to burn off that chocolate!
In addition, each club champs run by the club requires a minimum of 11 officials and preferably 15 officials each time. All the officials must have undertaken formal training and be licensed with the ASA. At the moment the majority of our officials are parents of children in the Sharks squads. Minnows and Marlins squads are far less qualified at the moment, and yet the parents of the Sharks swimmers often need to officiate where their children are not swimming. So we would like to up the numbers!
Please join our team of qualified officials. The more officials/judges we have, the more the work can be distributed evenly. Download the application form here. Please return the form to me (SISC noticeboard box or in person) and I will send off all applications to the regional officer with payment from the club.
If you would like to discuss this further please speak to me directly or email me at Webmaster
