Updating Relay Names

We attach a guide at this link that explains how you make changes to your relay names and swimming order in the portal.  You will have already entered your teams and probably most of your swimmer names in your original entry file.  These will be visible in the portal when you follow this guide.

You will not need to submit an updated entry file.  We will download the names that are in the portal on Friday, 29 April at midday.  Please do not make any changes after this time as they will not be included in the meet.  After midday on Friday, you can make changes directly with Alan Thurlow in the Timing suite at the LAC at any time up to the closing time for withdrawals of the relevant session.

Please ensure that you have added the names of any potential swimmers into the portal.  You can enter up to 8 per relay team. Adding names directly into HyTek is time consuming and could delay the start of the session.

Please contact Alan Thurlow if you have any questions.

Youth Accepted and Rejected Entries

All valid entries have been accepted.  The Accepted Entry List can be found in the Meet Documents section below.  We had 2,280 entries of which 1,113 (49%) were through the Qualifying Meet.

The report of entries rejected because they were invalid, either because they did not meet the qualifying times or could not be validated on Rankings, can be found at the links below:

Age Group Accepted and Rejected Entries

The age group accepted entries report is available in the meet documents section below.  We had 2,208 entries of which 119 were rejected.  The main reasons for rejections were that submitted times were not on rankings or the times were outside the qualifying times for the meet entered.  We have noted that there was only one entry from a para swimmer.  Of the 2,087 entries accepted, 830 achieved automatic qualification by successfully entering the Qualifying Meet.  This represents just under 40% of the total accepted entries.

A rejected entries report from the Qualifying Meet entry can be found here.

A rejected entries report from the Consideration Meet entry can be found here.

There will be a Qualifying entry and a Consideration Entry to this competition.  Both should be entered at the same time and both have the same closing deadline.  Qualifying – eligibility governed by Qualifying Times (match or better), the achievement of which will guarantee entry into the relevant competition subject to the Promoter’s Conditions. Consideration – eligibility governed by a lower set of Consideration Times and Upper Limit Times equal to the Qualifying Times. The achievement of the Consideration eligibility does not guarantee entry into the relevant competition and Consideration entries will be managed/accepted/declined to achieve an optimal number of competitors for the meet.

Each pair of event files consists of a Qualifying entry file and a Consideration entry file.

Competitors (or their representatives) who are not intending to/who are unable to swim in Heats or in “Heat Declared Winner” events must notify the Meet Manager of the competitor’s name and the number of the event from which they wish to withdraw electronically by email before midday on Friday 11 March 2022 for the Age Groups weekend events (the day before the start of the competition), or electronically by email before midday on Friday 29 April 2022 for the Youths weekend events (the day before the start of the competition), or in person by completing a withdrawal form at the table on poolside no later than 50 minutes before the start time of the first event of each session.
  13. Please assist the Meet Manager by submitting timely withdrawals to ensure that the sessions run to an optimal schedule with no empty lanes.
  14. An announcement will be made of the finalists and 2 reserves for each event as the meet progresses.  The announcement will include a time by which finalists and reserves can withdraw from a final.  A fine will be levied on the club under whose name the swimmer is entered if a swimmer does not withdraw from a final in time by completing the withdrawal form at the Withdrawals table and does not swim.

Meet Entries

We have updated our on-line meet entry form to allow individual entries to be made for Masters and Para Swimmers.

The form looks different but it operates the same way for Club competition secretaries in allowing you to upload your meet entry file in either an SD3 or HY3 file format.  The confirmation of what we have processed is now displayed for you on line so you will not be getting a separate email from our Meet Admin to confirm what we have received.  You can also delete an existing entry file and upload a new one if you have made changes before the closing date.  You can also withdraw a swimmer from a specific event.

Any Masters or Para Swimmer making an individual entry should use this online form too by selecting the “Individual Entry” option.  Para swimmers will be asked to enter their classification.  Clubs should also use this option to enter Para Swimmers.
