Munster Gala Rules & Qualification 18/19

Munster Meets 2018/2019

This document is intended as a guideline for swimmers, coaches and parents.  The Technical Group have spent quite some time working on this. There may be a need for amendments or clarification to rules.   We apologise for any errors or omissions.

The following meet conditions will apply to all competitions, but all meets will have specific meet conditions

  • Relays – One swimmer may swim up in age, but must remain in that age group for all relays in the competition in galas where there is age group relays.
  • Entry Times –All entry times must have been achieved within the previous fifteen months.
  • Electronic Times –Only times achieved where electronic timing was used will be accepted for all competitions of Development “2” standard and above.
  • Age Up Date –  The age up date will be 30th December in the year of the competition.
  •  Age for Competition -  Swim Ireland policy states that swimmers should not compete in galas above club level until they are ten years of age for Development and Qualifying meets. It was agreed that for future galas where there are age groups this would be included in the conditions. However, in Championship events, the lower age limit will be as per the meet conditions.
  • Closing Dates – All closing dates would be three weeks before the competition. However, this may be amended to permit entries to be accepted if a gala takes place the weekend of the closing date.
  • Entries on the Day – Entries can be taken at the discretion of the referee in certain situations at Development 1 & 2 galas. At galas other than Development 1 & 2 submitted entries will be returned to the clubs for verification, amendments etc. before the competition and a date for the return will be specified.  No changes or additions will be taken after that date.
  • Scratches – Qualifying & Championship Meets. Swimmers who fail to scratch, but then do not swim in an event will be subject to a fine of €50 per event not swum.  This fine will NOT be imposed if a swimmer produces a medical certificate within 72 hours of the finish of the competition.  If a swimmer withdraws on medical grounds, they are not eligible to participate any further in the meet. Latest times for withdrawals will be announced at either the Technical meeting or over the PA during the meet.
  • Seeding - Non-conforming times will be seeded in the first heats (i.e. In a Long Course competition swimmers entered on SC times will be seeded slower than swimmers entered on LC times and vice-versa in a Short course competition). Conversion times will NOT be accepted where there are LC and SC qualifying standards.
  • Officials - All competing clubs must provide at least one official per four swimmers per session up to a maximum of four officials per session. Failure to provide the required officials will result in a fine of €50 per official per session.

 

Gala Progression

MUNSTER  DEVELOPMENT 1 GALA

3 Opportunities       

Swimmers may enter one 100m and three 50m events OR two 100m events and one 50m event.

Once a swimmer achieves a cut off time in an event, they are no longer eligible to swim that event in Development 1 galas but may swim the event in Development 2 galas. 

However, to be eligible to compete in four events in Dev 2, swimmers must achieve the cut off time in the 100m Freestyle and the 100m Ind. Medley event or the 100m Freestyle and 2 of the 50m events ( Back, Breast or Fly), or the 100m Ind. Medley and 2 of the 50m events ( Back, Breast or Fly). They will then be eligible to swim in Development  2 galas, and will no longer be considered Development 1 swimmers.
