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."
A really great evening last night and we hope everyone enjoyed it
Having outgrown the Corn Exchange, it was good to be back at the Burgess Hall again. We will be planning the 2015 evening soon, so please feedback to any committee member your thoughts and views
Thanks again to Jackie Cox, Sarah Coral, Mark, Mark and Will for the organising of the evening.
Congratulations to everyone who received an award or trophy.
It was great to announce our new Club Captains: Fran Crocker, Ed Hick, Dannii Rayner and Peter Todd.
Congratulations to Amelia Darnell and Jonathan Bailey on being awarded the Endeavor Trophy.

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
