Please be aware of the following important updates and information for the 2022 Victorian Age SC Championships.
We are pleased to advise that formal medal presentations will return for these Championships. Medals will be awarded to the top 3 athletes registered with Swimming Victoria in addition to any placegetters. Athletes are asked to proceed to the dais once official results have been posted.
Accreditation for athletes, coaches, team managers and support staff may be collected from the Swimming Victoria office (level 2 at MSAC) from 12pm Wednesday 3 August and on Thursday 4 August, between 9am-4pm. Accreditation will be supplied in club packs only. Collection at the event will be from the Swimming Victoria table situated at the top of the stairs.
ATHLETE ENTRY LIST, PSYCH SHEET & TIMEKEEPER ROSTER
The Athlete Entry List, Psych Sheet and Timekeeper Roster are on the Swimming Victoria website. Please review this and notify of any necessary changes by 3pm Wednesday 3 August, so that the meet program can be finalised. No late entries will be accepted.
WARM-UP & COOL-DOWN
Warm-up will be commencing from 7:30am in both the indoor competition pools. Please ensure you have reviewed the warm up procedures. The diving pool will be available throughout the competition for cool down, along with two outdoor pool lanes during the heats sessions.
Assisted Self Marshalling will be in place for this competition. Athletes will be instructed by the check starter to move behind the blocks once the event ahead of them has entered the water. An overflow room (old marshalling rooms) will be available for swimmers to prepare themselves prior to their race. When Self Marshalling is in place, there is no requirement for the swimmers to use this room, they may just turn up behind the blocks without any formal check in.
COACHES SEATING AREA
As we will be running two competition pools concurrently for the morning heats sessions, there will be restricted access to pool deck for athletes during competition. There will be coaches tables/seating on pool deck for coaches only, with further reserved coaches seating area in the grandstand. All athletes are asked to remain in the stands between races and to only access the coaches area for pre and post-race instructions. To enable the smooth flow of athletes from the stands to marshalling, we ask that Team Managers remain in the stands to coordinate their swimmers.
ATHLETE BAGS AND SWIM GEAR
MSAC have advised that athlete bags and swim gear will not be permitted to remain on pool deck (except when in use for warm up/cool down) due to safety and emergency access requirements. The two marshalling rooms will be available for athlete bags etc. and can be accessed from the back corridor. Any bags left unattended on pool deck will be removed by staff. Please note, Swimming Victoria and MSAC will not be responsible for any belongings left in any of these spaces.
Results by event will be posted on pool deck following the conclusion of each event. Results will also be available via Meet Mobile throughout the meet.
Attendees are reminded to not congregate within the MSAC entrance foyer. Please remain in the grandstand area or mezzanine level throughout the competition. The Championships will be live streamed on SwimTV. We will be running two separate channels for heats so that all races across both pools will be broadcast.
It is recommended that face masks are worn if you are unable to physically distance in the grandstand or whilst on pool deck.
For those who know prior to the competition days that they are unable to attend the competition due to being a COVID positive case ONLY you may request a refund via direct email to firstname.lastname@example.org, including evidence of your positive result.
Thank you to all for your continued support and understanding. We look forward to hosting the 2022 Victorian Age SC Championships.
