Submitting Meet Results for Website Posting
Please review the North Texas Swimming Policies and Procedures Manual for complete instructions. The instructions given here are for the media and format of electronic submittals to North Texas Swimming. The Policies and Procedures Manual details other LSC requirements.
Which Meets Will Be Posted ?
ALL sanctioned competitions will have their results posted on the North Texas Swimming website and must have their meet results submitted to North Texas Swimming. Approved or Observed meets must have results submitted to North Texas Swimming in order for official times to be loaded into SWIMS, but meet results generally are not posted on the North Texas Swimming website.
File Formats and Content
Meet Database Backup
The only acceptable format for results is a Hy-Tek Meet Manager database zipped backup. To create this, start the Meet Manager software and open your meet database. Click "File" - "Backup". When you are provided for comments, you do not need to provide any. Disregard the advice to provide a Team Manager export for your North Texas Swimming submittal and okay the creation of a backup.
All meet hosts must use the Hy-Tek Meet Manager version 3 software.
The results will be reviewed for adherence to NT LSC Policy and Procedure. In particular, these items shall be inspected before results are accepted by the LSC:
The web-based Registrations audits have been performed and all exceptions have been addressed
The NT LSC registrar has reviewed and approved the roster.
All names, ID's and birthdates are correct.
Team and LSC codes are correct for each swimmer [swimmers may swim "Unattached" any time]
All relays have the 4 swimmer names listed in the order swum
Overachievers are flagged with a + to indicate achievement of a new time standard as the software allows
Scoring is performed according to the meet information
Ineligible swimmers are not allowed to score points
Appropriate and correct time standards have been included for this meet classification
Meet setup includes correct sanction number, venue, meet name and description
North Texas Swimming will conduct quality inspections of the times and request verification of conditions such as "late pad" or times that do not pass "sanity checks". Result times are not considered official until this has been done.
The meet host will be asked to make any modifications required to bring their results to compliance.
The North Texas Times Coordinators will post results into SWIMS and submit the meet database to the North Texas Swimming webmaster to post on the North Texas Swimming website Meet Results webpage. The webmaster will not accept results from other submitters.
If a special meet scoring was done without using the Hy-Tek software, submit that information using a popular format such as Word, Excel, PDF, or .rtf [rich text format].
