Meet Manager Database

The current GSJSL Meet Manager Database has been broken down in the table below. These files have been zipped for uploading purposes; you'll need to unzip them with an application such as WinZip. Each host team will need to modify the database and send out the events file.

* All Meet Manager databases have been posted. If you find any mistakes or have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me. Last updated 10/08/17 @ 10:00 PM.

Here's the down and dirty about these Meet Manager Databases: 1st you have to download the zip file. If you try to download individual files within the zip it won't work. Download the zip file please. 2nd, unzip the file so you have the .mdb file and save it wherever you would like. 3rd, open Meet Manager, select File then Open and find the .mdb file. Then save it as whatever name you want. If you have questions after doing this please reach out to me. 

In addition, the open event are not a part of the individual limit and are not a part of scoring/awards. If you want to enter your athlete in an open event that takes them over the 3 individual limit override it when entering your athlete through TU. They will show on the exception report but as long as it is for an OPEN event you are fine.

01/28/18 - GSJSL Winter Championships

11/19/17: The Championship meet has been moved to Sunday, January 28, 2018.

11/09/17 Email Correspondence: It has been brought to my attention that the SJISA Coaches Invitational is scheduled for Saturday, January 27, 2018; which is the same day as our league winter championship meet. With all the planning and preparation trying to make sure we don't interfere with MA, NJ, and YMCA championships I overlooked High School Swimming!

We have two choices with this situation.
Choice 1: Have championships on the same day allowing the high school athletes to make the decision of which meet to attend.
Choice 2: Move our championship meet to Sunday, January 28, 2018.

Meet Mobile: Search on "GSJSL"; however the name of the meet is listed as GSJSL 2017-2018 Winter Champs". The date on the search page says "TBD"; however, once you click on it, it shows the correct date of 01/28/18.

=====================================================================================

TEAM RESPONSIBILITIES

All teams will be responsible to provida a Stroke & Turn official (YMCA, NJ, or  MA certified); timers, lane marshalls/lane stagers. We will be using http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0a48afa92daafa7-20161 for all team work assignments, other than BGH. All BGH signups will be done on our team website. All team work assignments need to be signed up for by January 12, 2018. All teams will be contacted around January 14, 2018 if slots are not filled. The earlier we know the volunteers the smoother the meet runs. Several teams requested that a parent be allowed on deck to help them stage their athletes (not behind the blocks). One volunteer slot per session has been added for each team for this. If a team needs more than one per session please contact the meet director with the number you need and the reason why.

=====================================================================================

ON DECK ETIQUETTE

All teams will be assigned seating on the pool deck; this information will be found in your coach's packet at the admin table and will be sent out with the warmup & assignments. It is very important that you inform your athletes where they are to be seated. Please ensure there is enough room for passers by to walk without obstruction. 

Food and drink are permitted on the deck, however, please make sure your athletes are cleaning up after themselves. 

Ensure your athletes are not hanging on any equipment, putting their feet in the pool, or obstructing the events in any way. 

=====================================================================================

T-SHIRT AND HOODIE ORDERS

GSJSL Championship Tshirts and Hoodies must be pre-ordered for the athlete's name to be on it. The order form is part of Meet Announcement and a separate fillable PDF form (see list of reports and forms above). All orders must come from the coaches with their entries email. Orders from parents will not be accepted. Payments must come from the coach's with their entry check. T-Shirts and Hoodies will be given to the coaches to hand out. There will be a limited supply a t-shirts and hoodies on the day of the meet. 

=====================================================================================

NO PARENTS ON DECK OR IN LOCKER ROOMS

Please remind all parents that no parents are allowed in the locker rooms or on deck. If a parent wants to be on deck they need to sign up to be a volunteer. There will be safety marshals at all entrances/exits on deck ensuring that only athletes, volunteers, officials, and coaches are permitted on deck. This is required by USA Swimming and Middle Atlantic Swimming.

All teams will be required to have a coach or their parent stager at the Swimmer Drop Off Area to assist athletes that need additional help getting on and off deck. If there is an athlete that requires additional help in the locker room, all teams will be required to pair that athlete with another athlete "buddy". It is imperative that all parents are aware of this rule, as it is unfair to our marshals, officials, and volunteers for parents to be screaming at them. 

=====================================================================================

HOSPITALITY 

All Officials, Coaches, and Volunteers will have the hospitality area available to them during the three sessions. Athletes are not to be brought into the Hospitality area unless they are actually volunteering during a session. The hospitality area will be monitored and wrist bands will be checked. Ms. Nadia will be cooking for us once again. Once the menu is determined, it will be posted in this location. 

=====================================================================================

COACHES

"USA/MA Approved meets will run under the technical rules of USA swimming. The host team and/or organization controls the coaches and on-deck volunteers."

Coaches attending our GSJSL Champs are not required to have USA Swimming Coaches Credentials. However, as a league we are requiring that the Head Coach from each team provide a list of approved coaches for their team. These coaches will need to show their identification (coaching credentials if they have them and their driver's license) at admission. Their name will be checked against our coaches list. Only those individuals on the list that provide identification will be permitted on deck. 

You will be given a wrist band to wear during each session of the meet.

=====================================================================================

OFFICIALS (MA, NJ, and YMCA Certified)

All officials need to sign up via SignUpGenius: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0a48afa92daafa7-20161

All officials will need to have their current USA Swimming credentials available to be viewed at the registration/admission desk in conjunction with your driver's license or government issued ID. Deck Pass or printed credentials are accepted.

This is required by Middle Atlantic Swimming.
