Deck Access:
Updated - 2019-07-30

ONLY SWIMMERS, COACHES, OFFICIALS AND ACCREDITED CHAPERONES WILL BE ALLOWED ON DECK.

This is crucial to running a safe swim meet due to the number of participants that are expected. Security Marshals will be at all access points to the pool deck to ensure compliance with this matter. Coaches, swimmers and officials will be provided with accreditation passes for access to the deck.  

Officials: will require a pass with a session indicator for each session they volunteer to access the deck.  Parents & other spectators must view from the provided spectator areas off the deck. 

Chaperones: Teams will be allowed 1 parent volunteer per 12 swimmers under 11 years of age to chaperone the participants. These team chaperones SHALL be accredited in the same manner as the officials. Chaperones will be given a wristband to wear for identification purposes. Wristbands will be in the coach package to be distributed to the club's chosen chaperones. Each swim club MUST submit a list of chaperone names by Tuesday August 13, 2019 at 12 o'clock noon to the Meet Manager: maria.sherwin@gmail.com.   This is critical for the accreditation process. If no names are forwarded, then no chaperone from that club will be accredited for deck access. Chaperones cannot have any ASSA non provincial competitors in their care on the deck. Chaperones must make their own arrangements for food and drink. 

Consideration for special circumstances requiring an additional chaperone must be emailed to the ASSA Executive for review and approval prior to 11:00pm August 14th by the Club President with the support of the head coach.

Coaches: Coach's packages and athlete passes will be available for pickup on Friday afternoon from 3:00-7pm just outside the main entrance doors of the Kinsmen. We strongly encourage clubs to attend the Friday pickup to help alleviate Saturday morning congestion. Important note: Coach tables will be assigned at this year's provincials with 2 two chairs per club for the coaches.

IMPORTANT NOTE: There will not be any pool deck camp spots allowed - no tents, lawn chairs, cots or floor blankets. All swimmers staying on the deck must use the bleacher space provided to sit on.

Qualification:

Qualification to the ASSA Provincial Championship meet will be based upon the results posted on the ASSA web site from the six Regional Swim Meets. A swimmer must qualify for The Provincial Championships by participating at a Regional Swim Meet. Based on the Regional swim meet entry limit, swimmers at the Provincial Championship swim meet may qualify for a maximum of four (4) individual events and two (2) relay events. These two relay events shall consist of one (1) Medley Relay and one (1) Freestyle relay only.

Swimmers can qualify for provincials in the following ways:

Regional Qualifiers

 Consists of:

  • The top one (1) placing swimmer in every age group in the 800 and 1500 Free
  • The top two (2) placing swimmers in every age group, with the exception of the, 800 and 1500 Free
  • The top one (1) placing swimmer in each gender division of the PARA events
  • The top two (2) relay teams in each age group

“Wild Card” Qualifiers

 Consists of:

  • For the 800 and 1500 Freestyle events: The top two (2) swimmers from across the province, based on Regional Meet Results times, who were not regional qualifiers
  • The top four (4) swimmers from across the province, based on Regional Meet results times, who were not regional qualifiers in the remaining events outside of the 800 and 1500 Free
  • For the PARA events: The top two (2) swimmers from across the province, based on Regional Meet Results results, who were not regional qualifiers
  • The top four (4) relay teams from across the province, based on Regional Meet results times, who were not regional qualifiers

NOTE: Additional “Wild Card” qualifiers will be selected to fill the heat(s) in events missing complete sets of region qualifiers.

 

This Wild Card Procedure shall follow the ASSA Rules & Regulations 9.6. Random seeding by the HY-Tek computer program will be used for swimmers who have identical entry times.

 

Alternates

Alternates for each event will also be selected. If a swimmer scratches from an event, alternates will be moved in to fill their position and will then become “Wild Card” qualifiers. This process is used regardless of whether the scratched swimmer is a region qualifier or a wildcard qualifier.


 

Para Swimming:

ASSA is offering five events for PARA swimmers at Provincials:

  • Long free (100 m)
  • Short backstroke (50 m)
  • Short breaststroke (50m)
  • Short Fly (50)
  • Short free (50 m)

All PARA swimmers must qualify through participation at a Regional Swim Meet in PARA events. Entry to provincials in PARA events will be granted to the top placing swimmer in each event at Regionals based on their IPC point scores. Following this, two ‘Wild Card’ positions will also be available.

To be eligible, PARA swimmers must meet the IPC Classification system requirements and be listed as a PARA swimmer on the Swimming Canada PARA swimmer list. Please consult the ASSA website for further information about PARA eligibility and the IPC Classification system.


 

Entries/Scratches:
Updated - 2019-07-30

All Qualifiers are automatically entered in the Provincial Championship Meet. Swimmers who will be scratching from a Provincial Championship Event (whether a qualifier, a potential wild card swimmer or potential alternate swimmer) SHALL notify the Regional Meet Manager before the Regional Swim Meet ends. The Regional Meet Manager shall ensure the Regional Representative is aware of these scratches so he/she can enter them into the ASSA site prior to completion of the wildcard draw.

Please ensure that your designated region contact has these items.

Wildcard Draw Procedures 

The Wildcard Draw procedure consists of the following seven steps:

  1. Sunday – before 8pm – the computer operator from each Regional meet loads regional results into the ASSA database.  Results will be viewable by the public and swimmer listing available to Regional Reps.
  2. Sunday – 8pm – midnight – Regional Reps scratch swimmers who are not going to Provincials.  These swimmers will not be included in the wildcard draw.
  3. Monday – midnight – 8am – ASSA Computer Liaison completes the wildcard draw.  Wildcard results will be viewable by the Regional Reps. At this point, each region will maintain two qualifiers per event.
  4. Monday – 8am – noon – Regional Reps check wildcard results for errors or omissions.  Additional scratches can be completed by the Regional Reps.  This will cause Alternates to move up to the WildCard positions.
  5. Monday – noon – 1pm – ASSA Computer Liaison will make WildCard draw available to the public.
  6. Monday 1pm – Wednesday – noon – Regional Reps will continue to enter scratches.  An alternate will move up each time a scratch is entered.  If a qualifier scratches, each region may not necessarily maintain two competitors in that event.
  7. Wednesday – noon – ASSA Computer Liaison will create an entry file to send final entries to the Provincial Meet Manager for inclusion in the Provincial Meet.

Notification of Wild Card Swimmers

Once step 5 of the Wild Card Procedure is completed, clubs, coaches, parents and swimmers will be able to see who has qualified for Provincials. Each group should continue to monitor the Wildcards on the website until Wednesday at noon to see what Alternate swimmers have been moved up to compete in events. 

Late Scratches

Please notify the Provincial Meet Manager at  maria.sherwin@gmail.com of any scratches occurring after noon Wednesday August 14, 2019. Scratches received after this time will not be included in printed heat sheets.  Scratches will be accepted up to the Coaches Meeting on Saturday, August 17 or by the Clerk of Course at the posted scratch times from page 3 of this invitation. 

Relay Changes are according to the ASSA Rules and Regulations.
